Imlil-Morocco

Trek in this popular region for stunning scenery, high mountains and Berber villages. Go on mule tracks through high passes and descend into deep valleys, passing by plenty of terraced fields of maize, potatoes etc. Reach the summit point here and revel with breathtaking landscaped vistas!

DAY 01

MARRAKECHE IMLIL TO BASS CAMP

  • Transfer to the little village of Imlil fro Marrakech.

  • Begin our trek. Heading along the Mizane Valley, we first pass the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. 

  • Continue east and by crossing the flood plains our route takes us along mule tracks and up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley.

  • Cross the river we eventually come to the pastoral shrine of Sidi Chamarouch, which attracts tourists and pilgrims. From here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and the Toukbal Refuge (3206m), our stop for the night.


DAY 02

REFUGE TO TOUBKAL SUMMIT

  • Early in the morning, we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going 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.

  • Retrace our steps when we return down the mountain and head back to the Toubkal Refuge where we will spend the night.

DAY 03

REFUGE TOUBKAL DOWN TO MARRAKECHE

  • Walk back from the Toubkal Refuge to Imlil. 

  • After arrival in Imlil we will transfer back to Marrakech.

  • 150 EUR Per Adult
  • Transfers from and to your hotel.

  • English and French speaking Berber (Moroccan) tour leader.

  • Overnight Stay in the refuge.

  • Mule and food for all the trip.


  • Sleeping bag – you can rent one.

  • Personal travel insurance.

  • Soft drink (water, etc.).

  • Tips.

  • Toubkal region is the most popular area with trekkers. Easily accessible from Marrakech, it is an area of stunning scenery, high mountains (including Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa at 4167m) and typical Berber villages. The area is crisscrossed by mule tracks that cross high passes and descend into deep valleys, passing summer pastures and terraces of maize, potatoes and other crops and orchards of walnut, apple and cherry. Imlil is the main trailhead for the area.
