Trekking In Morocco: Trekking to Toubkal Ascent in 3 Days

3 Days

This is a 3 day adventure (and one of our most popular Morocco tours) to the top of the stunning Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains.

As you climb Mount Toubkal, You’ll get to enjoy some stunning scenery as you trek to the mountain’s summit. The Ighouliden waterfalls and the Azzaden Valley are beautiful parts of the High Atlas and the views from the top are sublime.

Join us with our Berber guides and mules on a true Moroccan adventure!

How To Get There And Get Back

The rip begins with a lot of excitement and fun. The driver will reach your accommodation or park in the nearby area, in case the riad does not have access.

After the sightseeing, you will be dropped off near the riad or hotel. The driver may also call you or the riad to meet, if required.

Food On The Trek

Meals during our Atlas Mountain tours are cooked by the Berber guides and muleteers and the food is fresh and healthy so you have enough energy to climb Mount Toubkal. For example breakfast might be jam, bread and butter, cookies, fruit, juice and coffee or milk.

Lunch may be salad with tomatoes, carrots, lentils, beans, rice or pasta. Sometimes we have fish (sardines, tuna) and seasonal fruit for that added punch to climb Mount Toubkal.

Your dinner could be soup, classic Moroccan tagine, couscous, olives and may include nuts and fruit.

Can my dietary requirements be catered for?

You can let us know about your catering preferences so we can arrange things accordingly. Make sure to share your preferences at the time of booking.

Please remind your guide and cook about your dietary requirements on the first day or before you start to climb Mount Toubkal.

The 3 Day Toubkal Trek is a great way to visit the highest peak in North Africa!

Overview

Depart from your accommodation in Imlil, trek to the stunning Azzadene Valley, hike past Tizi n’Mzik at 2450m, the refuge at Azib n’Tansoult and the amazing Ighouliden waterfalls before ascending to the Toubkal Refuge for the night.

Reach the summit of the highest peak in North Africa before returning to Imlil for some well-earned rest.

Itinerary

When you have transferred from Marrakech to Imlil we will start the 6 hour trek into the Azzaden Valley.

During your hike you will pass Tizi n’Mzik at 2450m, the refuge at Azib n’Tansoult and the beautiful Ighouliden waterfalls.

Finally, we will make our way to the Azib Tamsoult mountain refuge to stay the night.

There is a fairly stiff climb out of the Azzaden Valley to the Toubkal Refuge. It is well worth it though!

We will trek over the Aguelzim mountain pass at 3560m and you can take in the spectacular views over the Atlas mountain range while we have a well-deserved lunch.

When evening comes, we will spend the night at the Toubkal Refuge (3207m) also known as the Neltner Hut, with other trekkers making the same journey.

Today is an early start for the climb to the summit!

The peak of Jebel Toubkal stands at 4167m and when you reach it (if there are not too many clouds) you will get some beautiful views over the Atlas mountain range and the Sahara desert.

When we make our way down, we will stop at the Refuge so you can have a delicious lunch, before we trek right back down to the bottom of the mountain.

This is a fairly long day with 8-9 hours of trekking and involves a 900m climb in altitude and then almost 2500m back down again.

NB : When you get to Imlil, you will spend the night in a cosy riad until morning also you'll have Half board basis , but that will cost you 30€ per person
