Toubkal

Get a kick out of climbing the highest mountain in Northern Africa!

At 4,167m, Mount Toubkal is the highest mountain in North Africa. The hike to the summit is challenging, but it requires no mountaineering experience and the panoramic view from the summit makes the hard work worthwhile.

You can try Toubkal Express (2 days) but if you prefer a longer break then our 3 or 4 day itineraries may be for you.

Itinerary 3 days

Day 1: After a transfer to the little village of Imlil you begin your trek. Heading along the Mizane Valley, you pass the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. From here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and the Toukbal Refuge (3206m), your stop for the night. (4-5 hour trek)
Day 2: Starting early you begin your attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. The route takes you up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude can make it very challenging in parts. The views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile. When you reach the summit you will see that the vistas across the surrounding landscape are quite breath-taking. There are unrestricted views in every direction, from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara. You then return to the Refuge where you spend the night. (5-6 hour trek)
Day 3: Today you retrace your steps down the mountain back to Imlil. Transfer back to Marrakech. (4 hour trek)
   

Itinerary 4 days

Day 1: After arrival in Marrakech you transfer to the little village of Imlil. Here you will be able to explore the area and you will spend the night in a local Gite.
Day 2: Today you begin your trek. Heading along the Mizane Valley, you first pass the village of Aremd then continue east. By crossing the flood plains your route follows mule tracks then takes you up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. Crossing the river you come to the pastoral shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. From here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and the Toukbal refuge (3206m), your stop for the night. (4-5 hour trek)
Day 3: Starting early you begin your attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. The route takes you up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge.
