Toubkal trek - 2 days

Select Date and Travellers

What to Expect

Day 1: Transfer from Marrakech - 6 hours trek

Stop At: Toubkal Guide, Marrakech Morocco
Day 1: Pick up at 8:00 am from your accommodation in Marrakech. After a transfer of approx 1,5 hour to the little village of Imlil you will start your trek. Heading along the Mizane Valley, we first pass the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. You then continue east and by crossing the flood plains your route takes you along mule tracks and up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. Crossing the river you 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 refuge (3206m). Here you will spend the night in a tent camping near the refuge.

About 5 to 6 hours walking.
Duration: 6 hours

Meals included:
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight in a Local Gite

Day 2: 10 hours trek and transfer back to Marrakech

Stop At: Toubkal, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
Day 2: Early in the morning you make your attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Your route takes you 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 summit you will see that the vistas across the surrounding landscape are quite breathtaking. From here there are unrestricted views 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. You will retrace your steps when you return down the mountain and head back towards Imlil. Transfer back to Marrakech, drop off at the same location where we picked you up.

About 9 to 10 hours walking.
Duration: 10 hours
