Atlas Adventures: 6-Day Trekking Expedition & Mount Toubkal

6. Atlas Adventures: 6-Day Trekking Expedition & Mount Toubkal

Day 1 : The first day you walk through 3 nice Berber valleys. First your driver will pick you up in the Marrakesh medina. And take you to the mountains in ca. 1h15. At the altitude of 2.600m. you start the trekking in the tiny sky resort and azib (summer “village”) of Oukaïmeden. Here the mule men and their mules are waiting for you. And there you go. Walking into the remote valley of Ousertek. Passing by small and isolated Berber villages. The first day your path is mainly going down. Taking you to the valley of Imenane. There you end up in the cozy village of Imsker. Just one more pass with a beautiful view is waiting for you. And then there is Imi Oughlad in the valley of Mizane. Walking 5 – 6 hrs. Overnight stay: (very simple) Berber guesthouse. Imi Oughlad Alt. 1400m. / 4593 ft. Day I: Trekking Imi Oughlad (1400m.) – Tizi Oussem (1850m.) First there is the pass of Tizi-n-Tacht (2.000m). Providing a splendid view over the valley of Mizane and the valley of Ouïssaden (pronounced as Azaden). After the pass there is a small descent followed by a long but easy walk up to the remote village of Tizi Oussem (1850m.). Walking ca. 5,5 hrs. Overnight stay: Berber guesthouse. Tizi Oussem Alt. 1850m. / 6070 ft. Day 3: Trekking Tizi Oussem (1850m) – Imlil/Mezzik (1850m.) Over the pass Tizi Mezzik (2490m.). Optional in the morning you can walk to the cascades of Irhoulidine (2600m.). If you arrive early then in the afternoon there is the possibility to explore the small villages around (Targa Imoula, Tagadirt, Achein, Imlil). Or you can have a good relax or try the local ‘hammam’ (Moroccan bathing house). * For real good hikers only – there is alternative route. More information upon request. Walking ca. 4,5 hrs. Overnight stay: Berber guesthouse Imlil / Mezzik Alt. 1850 m. / 5840 ft. Day 4: Trekking Imlil/Mezzik (1850m) – refuge du Toubkal (3200m.) Today it’s only going up. The path is clear and easy to walk. On the road we pass by the sacred pilgrimage spot of Sidi Chamharouch. Non-moslims are not allowed to enter the mausoleum. After a refreshing lunch there is still a long walk to go to the mountain hut at Toubkal base camp. But finally you will see the mountain hut from far. Walking about 5 hours. Overnight stay: Neltner mountain hut ‘Toubkal’ Alt. 3200m./ 10.499 ft. Day 5: Toubkal base camp / Refuge du Toubkal (3200m.) to the summit (4.167m. / 13.671 ft). Today is the day. You will start very early in the morning (< 06h00). This makes the chance for great views the best. In the beginning the path is steep. Later on it is getting easier but then you will feel the altitude. Breath taking. Sometimes causing some headache or nausea. You can take some ‘paracetamol’ with you. At the level of Tizi Toubkal (almost 4.000m.) you might have a small setback. Please note that altitude can make you less interested too. So, just take a 5 minutes break – with 2 paracetamol if you like – and give it a restart! And the most important advise: just walk slowly. This is by far the best way to acclimatize. Walk just a little bit slower than you normally like. In this way you can walk ‘for hours’. And walking up to the summit will take you – at least – 4 hours. Going down will be a lot quicker – ca. 2,5 hrs depending on your skills and experience in going down a mountain. Please do it careful. NOTE: in WINTER when there is snow on the mountain, you might need crampons to cross the icy parts to prevent you slipping down. Crampons can be hired in Imlil. The crampons can be adapted to the size of your shoes and are attached wth straps. So you do not need the most heavy mountains shoes. (Category B/C is fine). Walking ca. 6,5 hrs. Overnight stay: Neltner mountain hut ‘Toubkal’ Alt. 3200m./ 10.499 ft. For walkers with an ‘easy way of going down’ there is the possibility for going down to Imlil/Aremd (1900m) on the same day. Total walking ca. 8 to 10 hours! Day 6: Descent to Imlil (1740m.) – transfer back to Marrakech. If you like you can make an extra climb in the morning to the high pass Tizi Ouanoums (3.685m.). For a nice view on the remote mountain lake “Lac d’Ifni”, far below. Extra: about 2,5 hrs up and 1 hour down. If you do not need this extra exercise it will be just relaxing in going down. The path is easy and your memories towards your success of summitting the highest mountain of North Africa will be sweet. In Imlil your transport is waiting to bring you back to Marrakech (alt. 450m. / 1467 ft). Walking ca. 5 hours. Transfer 1h.15min. End of the trip!

What people are saying about Azzaden Valley, Atlas Mountains

I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Marrakech, it was our favourite part of our travels! The hike is amazing and the route can be adjusted to suit all capabilities making it accessible to anyone! We walked for about 3-4 hrs per day covering roughly 12km each day and plenty of food was provided to keep your energy levels up. The overnight stay in the Berber village was perfect - a fire and plenty of blankets were provided to keep you warm in the colder months. Our only wish was that we could have kept going for a few more days!

Amazing walking experience! We were a very small group and Mohamed B. adapts to your level. He puts a lot of good mood and attention to make sure you have a good time, and everything you need during the trek and the night in village. Very beautiful landscapes!! And way more than expected in terms of meals and snacks. I can only recommend these 2 days in the Atlas Mountains and would definitely come back one summer. Remember to take good (mountain) shoes and very warm clothes for the evening.

Mustafa our guide was extremely cheerful and welcoming - couldn't have asked for a better guide! Took us on a stunning 2 day walk through the Berber villages and explained everything clearly. Ibrahim cooked the most delicious vegetarian food for us, in vast quantities, and in beautiful locations. The guest house along the way was cozy and bedding was provided. Wished we could've stayed for longer by the end of it!

Guide Mohammed and Chef Saeed were amazing. Great food and Guide was patient with my low fitness level. He offered additional summit hike if you want and if you are fit enough. Met the friendly locals along the way and was touched by their humbleness and welcoming gestures. Loose gravel stones along the path so make sure you have excellent shoes.

We are very happy with the activity and the guide Mohammed. We had a lot of fun together and I can only recommend booking this trip!!
