This is the most isolated place of the classical circuit around the Toubkal.
To explain it satisfactorily, it would be actually necessary to describe the whole tour, not without a noticeable risk of boring the Betracher.
Hence, as a shorthand, I propose to the interested people - if any - to have a look at the Google Earth screenshot picasaweb.google.com/albertopedrotti/MyGpsTracks#5949064340415684898
I did the circuit clockwise, ant this is indeed the exciting way to get here: after leaving the crowds at the Toubkal refuge, you cross Tizi-n-Ouano among fabulous red rocks, then you reach the Lake Ifni and the lost village of Amsouzert, where you will be very likely to sleep at the gite d'etape of Omar Aitumrar, unless you have been intercepted by his (unique) concurrent Mohammed in a little group of houses below the lake. The next day, you will cross the Tizi-n-Ououraine, 3120 m, where in my screenshot there is the copyright logo. Or, if you are in search for adventure, you will follow my red track, bringing you first to discover the hidden NE side of the Toubkal, then to cross, at nearly 3500 m, Tizi-n-Terhaline and Tizi-n-Tagharat, from where a long descent follows to the high Azib Tifni, 2800 m, where I had a bivouac in my sleeping bag. Last comes the beautiful gorge of the Assif Tifni.
Other easier ways:
- from Tacheddirt through Tizi Likemt, 3500 m;
- from Sidi Chamharouch, halfway to the Toubkal refuge, through the steep Tizi-n-Tagharat [wrongly Terhaline in my screenshot], 3500 m as well;
- from Setti Fatma, the last village of the Ourika valley.
