Mt Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa with a summit of 4167 m. The climb allows stunning views of the Atlas Mountains, Berber Villages and verdant green valleys. It is a great adventure for 3 days and was designed for keen walkers who want to mix a bit of backcountry into their Moroccan adventure.
Day 1: In the early morning we transfer from Marrakech to Imlil at 5,800 ft. You will start a 6 hour hike in the Imlil Valley and into the Azzadene Valley. On the way you will pass Tizi N’Mzik, the refuge at Azib n’Tamsoult, and the Ighouliden waterfalls. Depending on our pace, we’ll stay overnight in Azib n Tamsoult or a mountain refuge at 9,800 ft.
Day 2: The day begins with a stiff climb hiking out of the Azzadene Valley to the Toubkal Refuge over the Aguelzim Mountain pass. We will have lunch at spectacular view point over the Atlas Mountain range. We will overnight in the Toubkal Refuge where you’ll likely be sharing a bunk room with other trekkers tackling Toubkal early the next morning.
Day 3: We wake up early for the climb to Toubkal peak at 13,000 ft. Clouds allowing, there are expansive views of the Atlas range and the Sahara Desert. It is truly awesome. We go back down the way we came, past the refuge and the well-worn path back to Imlil. You will normally be dropped off at around 5.00 pm in Marrakech.
