"Asni - A small village on route to the High Atlas" Asni by barryg23

Asni Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 9 photos

Many visitors to Asni are hikers on route to Jebel Toubkal and the High Atlas as it’s the first major village between Marrakech and the mountains. A small tourist industry has developed to cater to these many tourists and you’ll find a relatively large number of restaurants and hotels here. It can be a good place to stock up on supplies for a hike in the mountains (though Imlil is equally good). It is possible to go direct to Imlil from Marrakech by Grand Taxi but if you take the bus you’ll only get as far as Asni. It’s fairly easy to organise a lift on from here but if you’re not in a hurry have a quick wander and take in the views of the mountains.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice views of High Atlas mountains, plenty of shops to buy picnic supplies
  • Cons:No banks. Irregular transport to Imlil. Not a great selection of cafes and restaurants
  • In a nutshell:Getting closer to Toubkal!
  • Last visit to Asni: Apr 2007

    A great little page! I loved the view of the High Atlas, and the story of your bus journey. And I got in first with a comment - yippee :)
