We (my husband and I ) are planning to have a day trip to the Atlas Mountains from Marrakech, We are planning to drive to Imlil and do 3-4 hours tracking and back. The plan is to hire a car, drive our selves there, hire a guide from the Bureau des Guides; we are not planing to do any mountaineering though, just simple trekking. The questions are:
Does any one know how easy or difficult the roads are to Imlil in January, Do we need a 4x4 or would a simple small car do? Are there risks of snow ? Do we need winter tyres? What type of clothing do we need for this journey? How cold does it get few meters up?
Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
