Day hikes around Imil??

I am a single female traveller seeking to do some nice dayhikes in the area the end of May. Any information on that? Are there Maps or is it better to hire a guide?

You better hire a guide from the guides office by the car park .

No clear trek trails and from the safety point of vue better to have a locale guide and the plus is getting all the local history .....

Alos giving work to a local person doing a bit to help the community ...responsible tourism and all that ...............

Hotel Ali near Dilemma el Fna normally has maps. Stanfords in London has a mail order service, check web site.

Hi! I'm also a single female traveller trying to look at hikes around Imlil late April. Do you need to book the guides, or can you just show up and sort something out?

Any suggestions of great hikes not to miss- I have about 4 days in the area!

Thanks!

Guides: check http://www.imlil.org/

Great hikes: read Rough Guide and Lonely Planet guide books.

Also Stanfords as mentioned above for specific trekking guidebooks.

I have

- Alan Palmer's 'Morocco Atlas Trekking Guide' and

- Karl Smith's 'Trekking in the Atlas Mountains'.

Hi Alibelle,

I'm also a female travelling solo and will be in Marrakesh April 22 - 30. I'm planning to go to Imlil as a day-trip and do some light hiking there. If you'll be in the area around those dates PM me, maybe we could meet and share a guide or even transportation to/from Marrakesh. I plan to hire a driver with car for the day, but am flexible.
