One might ask, what's the difference between Ourika valley and Imlil day trip, and it is a smart question, so here is your answer: Ourika is a very touristic attraction among travel agencies, foreigners accustomed to Morocco, and locals, you would struggle to find a parking spot in Ourika during hot days and mmaybe wait in line for each difficult hike which is not that bad after all. Second, The hike in Ourika is relatively short and demands quite some effort since you're doing it on foot, while in Imlil, you will ride the mules from the village of Imlil up to Aroumd where you'll have lunch, and our host has guides that will accompany you and guide the mules all the way, this gives you a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the experience, the scenery, the ride and the discussions and not be exhausted. The mule ride is also a big help for the photography fanatics because you're not watching each step you take in the rocky road and you can focus on taking some extra ordinary picutres. Imlil is also less touristic so it's quite rare that you encounter other tourists especially during the hike from Imlil to Aroumd except maybe for some professional hikers taking a challenge against the mount Toubkal.
