Mount Toubkal Ascent

Mt Toubkal (4167m) is the highest mountain in North Africa. The trek to the summit is challenging but not technical and ds not require any mountaineering experience. We drive from Marrakesh to Imlil, a village in the High Atlas mountains, to begin. We walk to Aremd for overnight and acclimatisation. Then, following switch-back paths up slopes covered in scree, we camp overnight near Neltner Refuge before attempting our summit ascent the next day. On a clear day the panoramic views from the top of Mt Toubkal are truly spectacular and it is possible to look out over the Sahara to the south.

ItineraryExpand
Day 1
An early arrival is recommended in Marrakesh to explore this wonderful city. You have the opportunity to visit gardens, mosques, palaces, and the souqs of the old Medina before reaching the humming centre of Marrakesh: the Djemaa el-Fna. The atmosphere of this square is overwhelming with its jumble of food stalls, snake charmers, fortune and storytellers and the wide variety of people that flock to its attractions. The area is best visited in the evening, when the square really comes alive. It is a must to taste the many wonderful dishes on offer at the stalls. Overnight hotel (Marrakech Hotel Morrocan House BB or similar 3*hotel).
Day 2
After an early breakfast, we leave Marrakesh and drive to the small village of Imlil (1710m) in the High Atlas Mountains. Here we meet our trek staff and mules, and then begin trekking up to Aremd (1880m) about an hour away. We will go on an afternoon hike in the area for acclimatization. Overnight in a Berber house.
Day 3
Today we hike from Aremd to Neltner Refuge (3050m). Along the way there are chances to stop and enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery. Please note this camp is the only place to stay in this area and a National Park rule to stay here; for this reason it is utilised by many groups and unfortunately there might be evidence of rubbish or not as clean as we would like. Overnight: camping.
Day 4
We will make an early start for our attempt on Toubkal, North Africa's highest peak, and may start off on our 3-4 hour trek to the summit (4167m) in the dark to avoid the midday sun. First we must traverse long scree slopes; tiring terrain at this altitude and we must proceed slowly to conserve energy. Higher sections are more rocky and there is little vegetation. Once at the summit the views are spectacular, and although wind and cold conditions mean we will not linger long, we have time to enjoy the scenes of surrounding peaks of the Atlas mountains and down to the plains around Marrakesh far in the distance. We then begin the descent back, on the same route, to Neltner camp (3050m), where we will have a late lunch and enjoy a well earned rest after a hard days trekking. Overnight: camping.
Day 5
Today we descend down the valley, passing through the deeply religious village of Sidi Chamarouch. This area is also rich in wildflowers, and in spring we'll find the magnificent Peony Rose. We will also pass herds of goats traversing precarious mountain trails. We trek back down towards Imlil (1710m), and take lunch just outside the village. On arrival in Imlil we bid farewell to our trekking crew and their mules, before driving to Marrakesh for a celebratory farewell dinner. The rest of the evening is at leisure in Marrakesh, where you can return to the Djemma el-Fna to enjoy the atmosphere, or go shopping for some souvenirs in the souqs. Overnight hotel (Marrakech Hotel Morrocan House BB or similar 3*hotel).
Day 6
Transfer to the airport, where our services conclude.
