Continuing on you cross the village towards the Tamgercht forest where you have lunch and perhaps enjoy a little siesta under the walnut trees. After lunch you begin a gentler walk to the village of Assif Zegzaoune (1800m). Here you will stay the night in a Berber house and be served a traditional Moroccan meal.

Day 2 – Assif zeg to Tassa Ouirgane
On your second day you head back to Ouirgane via Adrar Takharkhort, here you can enjoy some spectacular views of the High Atlas. Then it is downhill most of the way back to Dar Tassa through the Azaden valley via the Berber villages of Tiziane, Ikoubline, Ait hareb and Douar Azerfsane.
