At 4,167m, Mount Toubkal is the highest mountain in North Africa. the hike to the summit is difficult but does not require any mountaineering experience and the panoramic view from the summit makes the work interesting. A perfect combination of 4 days 3 nights trek on the Western High Atlas leave by visiting many Berber villages and hiking over high mountain passes to acclimatize to the altitude before reaching the summit on Day4.
Day 1: Transfer from Marrakech to Agersioual, meet the team; Guide, cook and muleteers then left the first day which will be an acclimatization trek in Ouirgane National Park. Here, the terrain is sweeter with green ground copper and juniper trees. Night at Gite in a Berber village of Titian. Approx. 4-5 hours of walking time. (L, D)
Day 2: After breakfast you will head and over the valley and cross over to the beautiful Azzaden valley. The views open with a current of mountan rushing surrounded by lush Groves walnut tree leading to Toubkal and its peaks brothers at the head of the valley. Night in a rural village or camping. Approx. 7 hours of walking. (B, L, D)
Day 3: Today involves a fairly steep climb from the Azzadene Valley to Toubkal Refuge past the Ighouliden waterfalls and through the mountainous Aguelzim pass at 3,560m. Lunch will be taken with spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains. Overnight in the Toubkal Refuge (Niltner Hut) at 3200 m where you will probably share a room with bunk beds with other hikers tackling Toubkal early the next morning. Approx. 7 hours of walking. (B, L, D)
Day4: get up early for the ascent of Toubkal (4,167m) from where, allowing clouds, you will have a wonderful view of the Atlas and the Sahara desert, then a long way down beyond the refuge and the well worn way back to Imlil. This is a fairly long day with 8-9 hours of trekking, involving 900m until then almost 2500m down to Imlil before the transfer back to Marrakech. (B, L)
