Full description
Climb the beautiful Mount Toubkal on this glorious 3-day trek through the wilderness, and visit some of the most spectacular places in the region, including the village of Imlil, the Toubkal Massif, the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch and the summit of Jebel Toubkal. The Itinerary: Climb Mount Toubkal Day 1: Transfer from Marrakech to Imlil Arrive from Marrakech the city of Imlil, an excursion that takes up to 4 hours. Settle into your accommodation in Imlil and rest up for the big trek in the morning. Day 2:Imlil and The Trek to Toubkal Refuge via Aremd & the Mizane Valley Leaving the city behind, enjoy a scenic ride south towards the craggy peaks and plunging valleys of the Toubkal Massif. Admire the valleys of the Oued Rhirhaia that stretch out into the distance as you disembark your vehicle and join your mountain guide for a trek along Mizane Valley toward the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch and the cascading waterfall that rests beside it. Continue the trek, snaking and zigzagging your way up to the snowline and the Toukbal Refuge, where you will stop for the night. (4-5 hours of walking) Day 3 :Trek to The Summit of Jebel Toubkal & Return to Imlil Begin the day early as you continue your trek to the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Cross river streams and head across the fields of the mountains, navigating the endless carpet of boulders and rocks. Cresting the ridge line, find yourself on the plateau and stop to admire the breathtaking vistas of the surrounding landscape, including unrestricted views from the Marrakech Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara. Once you have reached the summit, gingerly begin your journey back down the mountain and towards Imlil. Then transfer back to Marrakech.

It was magic. Everything was perfectly organized and i enjoyed every minute of it. There are no words to describe this experience, its a must do!! i highly recommend this to everyone and i will remember it for the rest of my life. We had Hassan as a guide, absolute best, such a caring, kind soul, and he made our experience the best. He was welcoming,helpful and when i was struggling to keep up he encouraged me endlessly. He is a good man and he made a difference. we greatly appreciate him and we are so happy that we met such a wonderful person. We will remember this experience forever and will recommend it to anyone coming to Morocco! Thank you !

This was my favorite thing I did in Morocco. It was so beautiful and I had such a great time. Everything was so well organized. The hike itself is moderately challenging-- especially the last day, where you go up and down Toubkal and then back to Imlil, but certainly not undoable: it could be done by an outdoorsy kid. My guide was Mohammad and he was so nice-- you could tell he genuinely loves the area and loves being outdoors in it. He was very conscientious and kind and I felt very safe. I had Mustapha as a muleteer/cook and he was really nice too-- and they seemed very collegial together, you could tell they really liked working together. Honestly if I could do the whole vacation over I would cut out a lot of other stuff I did and places I visited and spent more time hiking in this area instead.

Great hike, food and guide

Our guide hassan was really welcoming, we got fresh food cooked for us and the hike was really nice. The sunrise at the peak was definitely worth the tough last day. I recommend to do the tour in 2 days if you are fit, the first 2 days were quite easy going.
