Toubkal Climbing 3 days will lead you to the highest peak in North Africa, Mount Toubkal at 4167m of altitude, the site offers breathtaking 360° views over the surrounding green valleys & Berber villages as well as other summits.
Itinerary Day per Day:
Day1: Marrakech – Imlil
After arrival in Marrakech, you wil be transferred to the little village of Imlil. Here you will be able to explore the area and you will spend the night in a guesthouse.
Day 2: Imlil – Toubkal Refuge
Today we begin our trek. Heading along the Ait Mizane Valley, we first pass the village of Aremd and then into the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. We then continue east and by crossing the flood plains our route takes us along mule tracks and up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. Crossing the river we eventually come to the pastoral shrine of Sidi Chamarouch, which attracts tourists and pilgrims. From here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and the Toukbal Refuge (3206m), our stop for the night. Approx: 4 to 5hrs walking.
Day 3: Toubkal Refuge – Summit – Refuge – Imlil – Marrakech
Early in the morning we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going quite difficult in parts. The views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile. When you reach the the summit you will see that the vistas across the surrounding landscape are quite breathtaking. From here there are unrestricted viws in every direction, from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara. We will retrace our steps when we return down the mountain and head back towards Imlil. Transfer back to Marrakech. Approx. 9hrs walking.
