About Demnate Day Hike 1

Summary

A full day's hiking to the unique travertine bridge over the gorge at Imi n'Ifri. An easy day's walk in the beautiful off the beaten track countryside.

Activity code: ITCTDEM01

Difficulty: GRADE ONE - walking mostly on paths at lower levels, sometimes rocky, seldom flat, for about 2 hours. Good shoes would do for this particular hike. Suitable for anyone who leads a reasonably active life. NB. Hiking always involves some effort.

Duration: 1 Day

Starting at 9am depart with your guide to descend through cultivated fields and olive groves, passing the village of Lmakina, and then a short ascent offering a panoramic view of the ancient town of Demnate. Descending again, continue through apple orchards, past olive and fig trees to arrive at the small village of Ait Maiad where you will find a large Koranic school with the possibility to visit the mosque and meet the 'Fkih'. Continue to the potters' village of Boutghart where they produce a distinctive yellow-hued pottery and where you can meet the locals to gain an insight into Berber life in the Demnate region. After an easy climb arrive at the bridge over the river Mhassir where your guide will prepare your picnic lunch nearby.

Afterwards, visit the famous natural travertine bridge of Imi N'Ifri over the gorge, formed some 1.8 million years ago. Around 4pm you will meet up with your taxi for the return journey to Kasbah Timdaf.
