Pick up from the hotel at 10 am and return at 7 pm. We visited an argan and spice cooperative, a Berber house and a carpet specialist during the day. We went to see the waterfalls after the Berber house. It is a bit of a long hike but not too difficult. It is worth the effort, but if you are worried about heights it can be difficult. We hiked down the mountain and stopped for lunch. A lovely traditional meal, and then we headed back. A great day. We were looked after by Ali as our guide for the day and Mohamed was our local guide for the mountain. We highly recommend this excursion.
