Imlil

imlil

The town of Imlil is internationally known for being the main base of ascents to the highest peaks of the High Atlas of Morocco, as well as other beautiful high mountain itineraries of its surroundings. It has a certain affinity with the population of Benasque, in the Pyrenees Oscense, where the highest elevations of the Pyrenees are found, since the high mountain communities are the ones that receive the largest number of visitors from their countries. Current is deeply marked by the climbers who frequent them.
The town of Imlil is internationally known for being the main base of ascents to the highest peaks of the High Atlas of Morocco, as well as other beautiful high mountain itineraries of its surroundings. It has a certain affinity with the population of Benasque, in the Pyrenees Oscense, where the highest elevations of the Pyrenees are found, since the high mountain communities are the ones that receive the largest number of visitors from their countries. Current is deeply marked by the climbers who frequent them.

Imlil, which is located at 1,740 m. high, means in the local language something like “whiteness” or “white place”, in reference to the snow that this small population usually covers during the winter months that is in its homonymous valley, surrounded by other small villages at the foot from the Toubkal / Ouanoukrim, Aksoual and Angour massifs.

Its inhabitants are of Amazigh ethnicity (Berbers) and associated to the tribe of the Aït Mizane de Rherhaya, mostly installed on the northern slope of the Western High Atlas, being its generic language the Tamazight (There are three variants of Tamazight, in Morocco) and his dialect the Tachelhit.

Culturally they are very Arabized and French-speaking, because in the schools of the valley, as it happens in most of the country, their grammar is not studied, their language is transmitted orally from parents to children. Somewhat marginalized, the Amazighs are mostly unaware of their true cultural origins, proof of this is the great confusion in the names and place names of their rugged geography.
