Trek in Morocco offer you eight days hiking around the Toubkal to enjoy the diversity of landscapes and mountains. This hike is designated for adventurers who want more enthusiasm, more discoveries, away from the noise of the city, to mix with the local life for a few days.
Mt Toubkal, known locally as Jebel Toubkal, stands 4167m above sea level and commands superb views of the High Atlas Mountains. This walking holiday in Morocco passes through impressive landscapes on well-defined paths and is, surprisingly.
This rewarding Mt Toubkal trekking trip passes through remote very beautifull berber villages and terraced fields offering us an insight to the life of the hardy and friendly Berber people. We finish the week with some free time in the colourful Imperial City of Marrakech.
DAY1 : ARRIVAL TO MARRAKECH
It doesn’t matter at what time you arrive; we will be waiting for you at the airport in Marrakech. We then transfer you to the hotel in the center of the city. While all the participants arrive, you can spend the afternoon visiting Marrakech.
DAY2 : MARRAKECH – TIZIANE
In the morning we leave Marrakech in our private minibus. After admiring the Moroccan landscape awhile, we arrive at the point where our trek begins. There we meet the mules and the cook who will make our life much easier these coming days. We cross the town of Imi oughlad and we begin the ascent towards the first mountain pass of the trek. From the pass, at 2000 m above sea level, we have precious views of the regions of Tigouga, Taroudant, and of the Angour mountains to the north. After lunch, we arrive at the village of Tiziane and set up camp. Walking time: 4h30
DAY3 : TIZIANE – TIZGI
We start the day early to avoid the sun during the ascent of a mountain pass. After reaching the Teouti pass, at 2400m, we descend towards the town of Assaka. After lunch our path climbs again until we reach the village of Tizgi, where we set up camp. Walking time: 6h
DAY4 : TIZGI – AZIB TAMSOULT
Today we hike along beautiful, wild landscapes of the Toubkal range. We’ll find flocks of cattle with their Berber shepherds. After the morning ascent, we descend to the valley of the river Azzaden, where we eat. With renewed strength, in the evening we climb to the campsite of Azib Tamsoult, to 2250m. Walking time: 6h
DAY5 : AZIB TAMSOULT – TOUBKAL BASE CAMP
Today is an intense day, in which we significantly increase the average altitude of the trek. Ahead of us we have the demanding ascent to the Aguelzim pass at 3450 m. The ascent is long but progressive. Once on the pass we will be able to admire the summit of Toubkal. We then descend towards the Toubkal base camp, at 3200 m. Walking time: 6h30
DAY6 : ASCENT MT TOUBKAL – TOUBKAL REFUGE – IMLIL
Today is D-Day. With 4 days of walking in the Toubkal National Park, the possibilities we have of successfully reaching the summit are high. We start the day early, at daybreak, to avoid the sun as much as possible during the ascent. After 3 hours of effort, we reach the top of North Africa. All the effort pays off with the impressive views we have. After enjoying this moment, we start the descent to the base camp. There we eat and then we continue the descent towards the village of Imlil, where we spent the night. Walking time: 7h30
