4 day trek to Mount Toubkal. At 4,167m, Mount Toubkal is the highest mountain in North Africa. The walk to the peak is very challenging, but requires no mountaineering skills and the panoramic views from the top make the tough work worth-while.
Transfer from Marrakech to Agersioual, meet the team; guide, cook and muleteers then set off on the first day which will be an acclimatisation trek in the Ouirgane National Park. The terrain here is gentler with copper green soil and juniper trees. Overnight in a Gite in a Berber Village of Tizian. Approx. 4-5 hrs walking time.
After breakfast you’ll head up and out of the valley and traverse over to the stunning Azzaden Valley. The views open up with a rushing mountain stream surrounded by lush walnut groves leading up towards Toubkal and her sister peaks at the head of the Valley. Overnight in a village, Gite or camping. Approx. 7 hours walking.
Today involves a fairly stiff climb out of the Azzadene Valley to the Toubkal Refuge past the Ighouliden waterfalls and over the Aguelzim Mountain pass at 3,560m. Lunch will be taken with spectacular views over the Atlas Mountain Range. Overnight in the Toubkal Refuge (Niltner Hut) at 3,200m where you’ll likely be sharing a bunk room with other trekkers tackling Toubkal early the next morning. Approx. 7 hours walking.
Up early for the climb up Toubkal (4,167m) from where, clouds allowing, you’ll have wonderful views over the Atlas Range and the Sahara Desert then a long way back down past the refuge and the well-worn path back to Imlil. This is a fairly long day with 8-9 hours of trekking, involving 900m up then almost 2,500m back down to Imlil Prior to transfer back to Marrakech.
