Tizi Oussem-Refuge Lepiney Part 1
The trip started thursday morning. We woke up at 5a.m and took the road from Rabat to to Tizi Oussem, passing by Marrakech, Tahennaout then Isni, finally arriving to Tizi Oussem by 14h. The drive from Isni to Tizi Oussem was a bit trecherous due to the presence of many turn arounds and mountainous roads. We parked our car in Tizi Oussem, prepared our gear and started our treck. Our guide was Mohammed, a friend of Houcein that we picked from Marrakech. He is an alpinist and goes to the Lepiney refuge quite frequently.
At last, we arrived at 19h to Refuge Lepiney, where we were accommodated with much grace by Mr Houcein. He is a nice host who prepared food for us and gave us the slipping bags necessary for the freezing weather at this altitude.
