Morocco Climbing

Morocco is a country of spice and colour, and contrasts and smiles. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the thick of Marrakech’s bustling markets, or relaxing in Casablanca, Morocco is sure to offer you a few surprises. And here’s a good one for you: Morocco has a wealth of adventure activities. Most people don’t think of the country as an adventure destination, but they couldn’t be more wrong.

Climbers especially should take advantage of Morocco’s mountainous and diverse terrain on a Morocco climbing tour. Climbing in the country is surprisingly easy to do, it’s affordable, and the weather is always generally good. The three main areas for climbing include Tafraoute, Todra Gorge, and Taghia Gorge. But with the right guide, you may seem parts of Morocco you never knew existed.

The mountainous area of M’goun is one such area. You can climb M’Goun, the second highest peak in North Africa, at 4067 metres high. Other mountains in the area also climb to heights more than 4000 metres high, and you’ll meet many Moroccans along the way who are happy to share their traditional food and culture with you. The valleys and canyons here consist of stunning and contrasting colours, especially in the Ait Bougmmez valley in the Atlas Mountains.

Speaking of the Atlas Mountains, getting into the heart of them is an absolute must-do on your Morocco climbing tour. For most people, to real pull is Jebel Toukbal, Jebel Toukbal at 4167 metres high, the highest peak in North America. From the Imlil Berber village, you’ll follow a track up to the South Cirque, until you reach the summit with unrivalled 360-degree views. You’ll take in a huge part of the country, with Marrakech plain to one side leading to the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara in another direction. Of course, along the way you’ll be treated to some famous and unique Berber hospitality, including local foods.

Morocco Climbing Continued...

But there are several ways to approach Mount Toukbal, including heading along the stunning Mizane Valley. Climbers love to stop at the village of Aremd before moving on to the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. You can navigate the food plains and the mule tracks before ascending the rocky cliffs about the valley, joining other tourists and pilgrims who have to come to pay homage to the shrine. A trip like this tends to take 2-3 days, while stopping at designated camps along the way up the mountain to load up on food and to allow those aching muscles some rest. Even if you’re an inexperienced climber, your guide (or guides) is highly capable of taking care of you, and you can feel assured you’re in safe hands!
