Mount Toubkal Climb

Mount Toubkal Climb

Mount Toubkal is the highest in North Africa. At an altitude of 4,167m and surrounded by towering sister peaks, climbing Toubkal is a fantastically rewarding challenge. Outside the winter months the ascent of Toubkal isn't technical so as long as you are reasonably fit you stand a decent chance of making it to the top. Located just a short distance from Marrakech, Toubkal can be climbed easily on a two day trip from the bustling city.

On a 2 day Toubkal trek you will make a steady ascent out of Imlil up the Mizane Valley towards Mount Toubkal. On route you'll pass the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. Then it’s onwards and upwards to the Toubkal Refuge for the night before making the ascent the following morning. Rest well and brace yourself for an exciting challenge.

The 3 day trek will take you out of the busy Imlil Valley into the peace of the Azzaden Valley, where any traffic jams are usually of the four-legged mountain goat variety. It is a picturesque valley with lush river banks. You'll pass by the waterfalls at Ighouliden and on the next day tackle a steep climb up the scree to the Aguelzim Mountain pass at 3,560m which offers stunning views over the Atlas Range. The big draw is then of course tackling Toubkal (4,165m) itself, expect an early start and sunrise over the Mountains and Sahara Desert!

This 6 day / 5 night circular trek around Mount Toubkal includes the summit of Toubkal, but the real highlight is in getting away from the crowds into areas of mountain wilderness. We will take you off the beaten track and show you the secret places of this region.
