At 4,167m, Mount Toubkal is the highest mountain in North Africa. The walk to the peak is very challenging, but requires no mountaineering skills and the panoramic views from the top make the tough work worthwhile.
With the start of the trek just a couple of hours drive from Marrakech, you can reach the summit and back within 2 days and still have plenty of time to visit Morocco’s most captivating city, Marrakech.Toubkal has become a magnet for trekkers heading to the Atlas Mountains.
The Jebel Toubkal trek is typically done in two days. The first day begins with the relatively easy walk from Imlil along the Mizane Valley towards Aremd Village and the Muslim shrine of Sidi Chamarouch, followed by the tougher push up to the Toubkal Refuge, making around five hours walking in all.
Most trekkers then aim to start early the following morning for the 3 hour scramble up to the summit (the trail at this point is a rocky scree covered path). At the summit, the views are incredible taking in most of the Atlas Mountains and on a clear day, the Sahara. The descent back down to Imlil takes around five hours.
