Thursday 8th September 14:00

After 2 days of climbing on the bikes we have arrived at Imlil - the last village on the route to Toubkal. Yesterday was a very strenuous day as we climbed up to Asni in the heat of the day. The 40 degree heat really saps you when going uphill as there is little wind to cool you down. We spent last night in a hostel in Asni and ate at a local villagers' house for a very reasonable price. We were pretty much all in agreement that the Tagine we were served was the best Moroccan food we had eaten so far! The climb to Imlil this morning was much easier as we left at the crack of dawn and arrived before 9. The Atlas mountains that surround us in a valley make for some spectacular scenery. We will spend 2 days here before walking to the refuge on Saturday morning.
