Mount Toubkal Ascent
P.P / P.D.
Mount Toubkal (4167m) is the highest peak in North Africa and provides you with a trekking path to the peak which involves no climbing. The itinerary has been designed for keen walkers, as the trek to the summit is non-technical, but does involve some easy scrambling and snow slopes. The views from the summit of Mount Toubkal are amazing across the mountains to Marrakech to the north and the start of the Sahara to the south.
During the trek to the summit of Mount Toubkal you will be rewarded with stunning views of the Atlas Mountains, green valleys and Berber Villages. If you choose to do this itinerary between November and April two days will involve walking in crampons and using ice axes therefore experience of using this equipment is recommended.
You can choose to complete the ascent in 2 or 3 days or even build it into a longer trek in the High Atlas Mountains. We are very flexible in terms of our itineraries and will happily create a bespoke one that meets your needs and interests. As on all of our treks you will be accompanied by a mule, muleteer and a guide who will take care of everything, all you need to do is trek and enjoy the views and feeling of achievement as you reach the summit.
Day 1 – Marrakech – Imlil – Toubkal Refuge
After an early breakfast you’ll head out on the 2 hour drive to the small village of Imlil. You’ll meet up with your guide and mules there, load up and set off on the 5-6 hour trek to the small refuge below the summit. The tracks are quite steep and narrow in places. You’ll continue climbing through these remote mountains and over several passes before arriving at the refuge where you’ll spend the night, enjoying Berber hospitality. Accommodation: Les Mouflons – Toubkal Refuge
After an early breakfast you will set off to climb the highest peak in the Maghreb. You will reach the summit as the sun rises, rewarding you with amazing views. You won’t encounter any major difficulties during the ascent as the final peak of Toubkal is broad and there is a gradual decline when approaching the summit. You’ll marvel at the high cliffs that plunge into the opposite of the Ifni Lake. After descending from the highest point in North Africa, back down to Imlil you will meet your transport to return to Marrakech.
