LOCALS ALWAYS KNOW BEST!
Hiking along the ridge of Jbel Angour is pretty demanding, trekking a full day from Tacheddirt, it requires basic climbing skills .
Much of today’s relatively gentle route follows the 4 WD track linking Imlil to the valley of Imnan. The road climbs gently eastwards of walnuts, apple and cherries before zigzagging up to Tizi N’tamatert at 2279 m. Easy 45 min walk to Ounsekra village, along this stretchyou will be treated to views across the valley to neat Berber houses and lush terraces in Talat N’chaoute, Tanguist, Ouansekra and Tachedirt. 5 hours of walking, night spent in a Berber Gite or tents.
From Tacheddirt, the trail zigzags up the left hand side of the Imenane Valley up towards Tizi N Tacheddirt, At the pass ( a three-and-a-half-hour steep walk, taking you up to 3616m ), a path climbs due north up a rough, grassy slope, to break through crags onto the sloping plateau, which can be followed to the Summit of Angour, this plateau is an unusual feature on a peak with such dramatic cliffs, It is split by a vally, with care, we follow a ridge down from here to Tizi N'Edai, and break away straight down to Tacheddirt.
trekking back from Tacheddirt to Imlil by way of Tizi N Aguressioual, this takes you first by a tricky-surfaced path to the hamlets of Tinerhourine ( 1h ) and Ikiss (15 min), from Ikiss a good path leads up to the Aguressioual pass, over the other side, it's another stony scramble down to the village of Aguressioual, from where we follow the Asni road back up to Imlil .
