High in the mountains above Imlil the path follows the walnut groves and apple orchards along the banks of Asif N'au Mizane. Crystal clear water passes through irrigation channels and over waterfalls on its journey from the slopes of Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa to the dry Marrakech Plains below.
Despite Moroccan water being slightly dodgy to drink from the taps, here in the mountains communal water taps are found by the side of the path. A mug is left for any passing traveller to help themselves to this icy delight, straight from the irrigation channel above.
