To reach the village of Imazayn from Tarbat-n-Tirsal, we first headed south-west along a small valley on the northern flank of Jebel Rat to reach Tizi-n-Kark (2850m). Then for a while we followed a level trail on the western side of Jebel Rat before dropping down to Imazayn. We set our tents a short distance beyond Imazayn across Assif Ghast.

 

At Tizi-n-Kark. The level trail that we followed next is barely visible on the left side of the photo.

The trail contours the western slope of Jebel Rat as shown in these two photos. The small village of Tala-n-Izri is visible on the right near the bottom of the valley.
