Tour overview

Jebel Toubkal is forty miles due south of Marrakech, and is the highest and most accessible mountain massif of the Atlas range, and the highest of all North Africa. It dominates the area with its steep rocky faces, and is surrounded by massive granite buttresses and several secondary peaks.

The normal route to the peak is via Imlil. The trek takes you through Sidi Chamharouch to the Toubkal Refuge at 3207 M.

Just an hour and a half outside of bustling Marrakech, Toubkal is a popular attraction for visitors and locals alike. Set in the western part of the High Atlas, Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa, overlooking the Haouz Plains to the north and the Siroua and Anti-Atlas Mountains to the south. You’ll encounter snowy terrain from December to April, but the trails are open to trekkers year round.

Experienced hikers used to high altitudes can tackle the 13,671-foot (4,167m) peak in two days. However, reaching the summit of Toubkal is also incredibly accessible for the average joe (in good physical health) on a more relaxed trek of three days or more. As an added bonus, longer hikes include stops in Berber villages for an extra-memorable Moroccan experience.[/vc_column_text]

DAY 1: Marrakech – Imlil1700 M– Azib Tamsoult 2200 M

You will be picked up from your place in Marrakech. Your driver will take you to the starting point of your trek at Imlil (1,780m) where you will meet your guide and muleteer . Once you have loaded up the mules, you will begin your trek, which starts with a fairly stiff climb out of the Imlil valley, up to the Tizi n Mzik pass (2,489m), which offers dramatic mountain views. From here, the trail descends down into the spectacular Azzadene valley, known locally as the valley of colour. You will pass the summer village of Azib n’Tansoult and the pretty D’Irhouliden waterfalls, which flow year round before continuing to the Lepiney mountain refuge (3,000m) where you will be spending the night

DAY 2: Azib Tamsoult 2200 M– Aguelzim Pass (3,560M) – Toubkal refuge 3207M

This morning you will embark on a fairly stiff climb out of the Azzadene Valley, heading towards the Toubkal Refuge where you will be spending the night. On the way you will pass back via the D’Irhoulidene waterfalls before climbing the Aguelzim Mountain pass (3,560m). Lunch will be taken in a spot with panoramic views over the Atlas Mountain Range. After taking in the scenery you’ll begin a descent to the Toubkal Mountain Refuge at 3,200m.
