At 4,167 m, Mount Toubkal is the highest mountain in North Africa. The hike to the summit is not difficult or steep, requires no mountaineering experience and the panoramic view from the summit makes the effort totally worth it. To reach the meeting point for this mountain climb, you simply travel 1 and 1/2 hours from Marrakesh where you will arrive at Imil, 1740m. Imlil is a small village in the heart of the High Atlas Mountains. You will be provided a meeting place in Imlil where you will meet your team and start your hike.

Day 2 : Toubkal refuge 3207m--Toubkal peak 4167m --Toubkal refuge.
Early in the morning you make your attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us up to the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The trek is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the walk 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. We will retrace our steps when we return down the mountain and head back to the Toubkal Refuge where we will spend the night again.
Day 3 : Toubkal refuge 3207m--Imlil 1740m --Marrakech
Today we walk back from the Toubkal Refuge to Imlil. After arrival in Imlil we will transfer back to Marrakech.
