Lake Tislit sits on a high plateau to the north of Imilchil.

My suggestion:
A good place for birdwatchers to visit.
My review

The lakes of Tislit ("bride" in Berber) and Isli ("bridegroom"), which lie around six miles from Tislit, are two very popular sites to visit in this region. I recommend making several stops to admire the views on the way to Lake Tislit.

I really enjoyed seeing the pastures of the High Atlas Mountains and the hosts of little flowers you every now and again here. This is a bucolic landscape, the colours of which offer a contrast to the mauve and red rocks of the plateau on which the lakes sit. Lake Tislit lies quietly amid this denuded plateau, which serves as a natural boundary between the Mid and High Atlas mountains, where only a sparse amount of vegetation is able to survive.

I found the panoramic views of Lake Tislit to be very photogenic: the lake's vast expanse of water illuminates the whole plateau, its pure blue colour contrasting with the surrounding arid landscape and rocks. Lake Tislit is such a calm and relaxing place that even the populations of birds and otters seem to enjoy being here.
