The driver will meet us at your hotel in Ouirgane or Marigha at 9 am and we will head forward to Ijoukak, passing by the Ouirgane lake and several berber villages. In Ijoukak, where the Agoundis Valley joins the Nfis, there is also an important local berber market every Wednesday.

 

After a short stop, we continue our drive to Talaat n'Yakoub, from where we start our about 1h30 walk to the Tin Mal Mosque, passing by the villages of Ait Berihi and Imawnan.

 

The Tin Mal Mosque was built in 1156 to commemorate the founder of the Almohad dynasty, Mohamed Ibn Tumart, and is besides the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca the second mosque in Morocco which can be visited by non-Muslims. It also was the model for the Koutoubia in Marrakesh and is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List since 1 July 1995 in the Cultural category.

 

After this visit, the driver will pick us up at the mosque, and then we will enjoy lunch either in a berber family home or in a rustique local restaurant, according to availability (at your own cost).

 

After this late lunch we will visit a pottery and then start our way back home.
