Toubkal – All Seasons

  • by

An expedition from Marrakech to Jebel Toubkal is a real north African adventure in six memorable days. At 4,167m, Mt Toubkal may be the top of the Atlas Mountains. It may be on the doorsteps of ours though it provides an adventure and trekking challenge entirely distinct from the mountains we have come to know and like in Europe.

The Toubkal trek 4 days itinerary of ours provides you with the very best possibility of summitting an iconic 4,000m mountain while providing a sample of the fantastic Moroccan country and culture in a brief timescale. We begin the journey of ours in Marrakech, Morocco’s exciting, other-worldly and frenetic capital before transferring to the foothills of the Atlas. Packaged in the village of Imlil we see the mule team of ours and start our sluggish meandering climb as much as the higher refuge which is the mountain house of ours. We pass through age-old villages, dominated by a huge Kasbah, and also connect hospitable Berbers that treat us to drinks that are rejuvenating and also show us gorgeous crystals present in the mountain. We just stop usually to marvel as the higher mountain scenery opens up around us.

It is feasible to climb all over the year, attempting whether summer or maybe winter ascents. Climbing up the mountain between late March and November creates the summit ascent a far more intense, exciting challenge, with crampons plus ice axes likely. You will be thoroughly instructed in the usage of wintertime climbing equipment.

En route to the summit, acclimatisation is via Ouanoukrim Peak. We will then wind the way of ours through rocky paths and also, based on time of year, ice, to attain the peak in which the Atlas range prepares before us. The silence is amazing, the High Atlas utterly memorable.
