2 Days Backpacking tour itinerary for Imlil & Toubkal: Ascent The Highest Mountain In North Africa
Embark on this Moroccan tour for views of Berber villages, mule tracks, high passes, deep valleys and terraced fields of maize, potatoes and orchards of walnuts and cherry. Stand tall at the highest point here and click your heart away for mountain scenery all around!
Toubkal region is the most popular area with trekkers as it is easily accessible from Marrakech. It is also an area of stunning scenery, high mountains (including Toubkal which is the highest mountain in North Africa at 4,167 m) and typical Berber villages. The area is crisscrossed by mule tracks that cross high passes and descend into deep valleys, summer pastures and terraces of maize, potatoes and other crops and orchards of walnut, apple and cherry. Imlil is the main trail head for the area.
Toubkal rufuge-toubkal summit-imlil-marrakech
After a very early breakfast today, you and your Moroccan guide will set out at 6 am to attain, after a three hour non-technical but steep climb, the highest peak in the Maghreb (4,167 m). The panorama from here is simply stunning. This remarkable climb and view are what you have come so far for. Whenever you are ready, your Moroccan guide will lead you on the Ikkhibi Sud or South Cirque for a straightforward 2 to 3 hour descent back to the area near the Refuge for a picnic (this descent can be steep in places and the route is covered with many loose stones so we would recommend a walking pole for this section for anyone with aching joints or who is not 100% sure footed). NB: The months from December through mid-April could possibly preclude the Toubkal summit climb due to sudden, heavy snowfalls. We shall advise you of adverse climatic conditions and alternate nearby peak climb – Jebel Aguelzim (3,547 m) prior to your setting out from Marrakech.
