    • This is the place where you meet your mule (male donkey) team and once all your gear is loaded, begin walking along the valley towards Tacheddirt, around 8 km from Imlil.

    • Soon the trail begins to rise as you climb up to the pass at Tizi 'n Tamaterte (2279m) with your Toubkal mountain guide.

    • Descend to the pretty village of Ouaneskra (2200m) and continue for another half-hour or so, to Tacheddirt (2300m), where you set up camp near the river.

    Approx. 4 hours of walking.

    Approx. 5 hours of walking.

  • Day 4: Tizi 'n Ououraine to Amssouzert expand_more
    • This will be a long but easy day, passing many different landscapes.

    • From Tizi 'n Ououraine (3120m), enjoy further views of the Toubkal Massif, including the summit, the east face and the Ifni Dome (3876m).

    • The trail leads on towards Amssouzert (1700m), one of the most striking villages in the region, where you spend the night in a local gite.

    Approx. 6 hours of walking.

  • Day 5: Amssouzert to Ifni Lake expand_more
    • West of Amssouzert are several small villages, which you explore as you make your way towards Ifni Lake (2300m), the only lake in the Massif. It is a memorable sight, surrounded by rocky mountains and giant heaps of rubble, and is unusually deep.

    • Expect to arrive at lunchtime and spend the afternoon relaxing at the shore.

    • Camp tonight in this area.

    Approx. 4 hours of walking.

  • Day 6: Tizi N’Ouanoums expand_more

    • Make your way along a steep path that leads up a seemingly endless scree slope. 

    • At length, reach the pass at Tizi N’Ouanoums (3664m), a narrow ledge between two shafts of rock. 

    • From here, it is a long zigzag descent to Nether Refuge (3200m), where you spend the night in tents.

    Approx. 6 hours of walking.

  • Day 7: Toubkal to Marrakech expand_more
    • Leave before dawn following a well-worn route to the summit of Toubkal (4167m).
