Description

Experience

Mt Toubkal stands 4167m above sea level and commands superb views of the High Atlas Mountains. Our trek passes through impressive landscapes on well-defined paths and is, surprisingly, not too strenuous. As we climb higher, the paths do become steeper but the gain in altitude awards dramatic views towards Marrakech and the spectacular Anti-Atlas mountains. Passing through remote villages and terraced fields we gain an insight into the life of the friendly Berber people and finish with free time in the colourful imperial city of Marrakech.
Minimum Age: 16

Itineary

Day 1 :Start Marrakech.

Depending on your arrival time, there may be some time to explore this wonderfully colourful city.

Day 2 :Drive to Imi Oughlad; climb Tizi n'Tacht Pass (2000m) and descend into the Azaden Valley.

After breakfast we transfer by minibus to Imi Oughlad, a journey that takes us from the plains around Marrakech into the heart of the High Atlas range. After meeting our mules and muleteers we start a 5 hour walk, climbing up to the Tacht Pass (2000m) before descending into the Azaden Valley, famous for its beautiful juniper forests, for the night.

5 hours walking, 11KM, Alt. gain 643m, Alt. loss 300m

Day 3 :Walk through Berber villages and spectacular mountain scenery, including the Ighoulidem waterfall.

A full day walking through the villages on the northern slope of Mt Toubkal. This famous mountain can be seen from Marrakech thanks to its unique shape. We travel through Azib Tamsoult and the Irhouliden cascade before arriving at our camp for the night, which sits at an impressive 3030m. There is an optional ascent in the afternoon for those who want to try a more demanding 3-hour trek to the summit of Hadjj (3200m), for excellent views of Mt Toubkal.

6 hours walking, 8KM, Alt. gain 1230m, Alt. loss 130m

Day 4 :Ascend the Aguelzim Pass (3550m) and enjoy superb views of the Toubkal Massif before walking down to base camp.

We depart early to cross the Aguelzim pass (3550m) where we can enjoy panoramic views of the Toubkal Massif and back towards the villages we passed two days ago. We then descend to Toubkal Base Camp and either enjoy a 2 hour optional climb to the summit of Ouanoums (3650m) or simply relax at our base for the night. The busy Neltner refuge, which sits at an altitude of 3207m, was constructed by Club Alpin Française in 2000. We camp outside the refuge so we can benefit from the atmosphere and views of surrounding 4000m peaks.

5 hours walking, 6KM, Alt. gain 550m, Alt. loss 300m

Day 5 :An early start climbing scree before traversing the southern ridge to reach the summit of Mt Toubkal (4167m). Enjoy magnificent panoramic views before descending to base camp.

We make an early start for the ascent of Toubkal, climbing steeply through scree before traversing the southern ridge to reach the summit at 4167m. After enjoying the magnificent panoramic views, we descend back to Base Camp.

6 Hours walking, 6KM, Alt. gain 960m, Alt. loss 960m

Day 6 :Climb Mt Ouanakrim (4088m); descend to the village of Aremd.

We have an exciting opportunity this morning to ascend another of Morocco's 4000m peaks - Mt Ouanakrim. Depending on weather and the groups ability, our leader will decide if this walk is achievable. We then leave base camp to walk to the village of Aremd (1904m). If there is time, we will spend the afternoon exploring the village and spend the night at a local gite. 

4 hours walking, 9KM, Alt. gain 0m, Alt. loss 1300m (this does not include the optional climb of Mt Ouanakrim).

Day 7 :Short walk to Imlil; return to Marrakech for guided tour.

The short walk down to Imlil is followed by the drive back towards Marrakech, where we have a guided tour. Taking in the main sites of this wonderful city, we learn about the history, culture and architecture. We then have free time to explore the Djemaa el Fna, and the Souq, a must for some serious bargaining for souvenirs.

Day 8 :End Marrakech.

Our tour ends after breakfast.
