mount toubkal ascent

Trek to the highest point of North Africa. With any technical difficulties.

Three to five days of 4 to 6 hours of trekking a day, means that we can discover the mountains in most favorable conditions, taking elevation and force into account.

during the first day, we follow little used mule tracks taking us through remote villages

 

Toubkal climbing: (Walk Grade: Moderate to Strenuous).
 Trek to the highest point of North Africa. With any great technical difficulties and that the assistance of the muleteers and their mules avoids too great physical efforts.

This mountain range is most accessible in High Atlas, near Marrakech.

 

Itinerary to Toubkal top: (include accommodation, food, guide and mules to carry all stuff).
 We drive into the Atlas Mountains, arriving to the small hamlet of Imlil. From here we walk along a mule track to the Berber village of Aremd.

 We met and stay with he friendly Berbers in their villages in the low and high Atlas valleys.

 Observing their everyday life at close quarters, we shall probably be invited to drink mint tea and share something of their traditional ways.

Up to now the Berber valleys remain largely unspoiled.

 Leaving the fertile Mizane valley below us, we begin the most challenging part of our trekking tour. We reach Sidichamharouch, the shrine of a local holy man, and continue up into the unforgiving High Atlas and finally reaching our refuge at Neltner (3200m of altitude) to make an attempt on the summit of Mt Toubkal (4167m), North Africa’s highest peak. The view are simply stunning. The ascent of Mt Toubkal is not compulsory and an easier option may be undertaken nearby, if preferred. Finally we return to our trek start-point for further walks or a relaxing day among the green fields and walnut trees of Aremd village.
