Tour Overview

INTRODUCTION

the peak of the high atlas

The Toubkal region of the High Atlas contains all the highest peaks of Morocco and, Mount Toubkal, at 4,167m (14,000ft) is the highest of them all. Located in the western part of the High Atlas, the Toubkal ancient rock massive overlooks the Haouz Plain to the north and the mountains Siroua and the Anti-Atlas to the south. For climbers, Toubkal is the most frequently visited peak in the High Atlas. The views from the summit of Toubkal provide a wonderful opportunity to see many high peaks of the High Atlas mountains.

Remarkably, the starting point for the trek and climb is only 1½ hours by good road from Marrakech.

The Toubkal summit can be tackled (up and back) in just 2 days for good, high mountain hikers who are used to this sort of terrain and are fit. ATS offers, however, a wide range of treks in Toubkal Massif area, of any number of days’ duration. as well as ascending the summit, such longer hikes include hiking passed Berber villages, their farmscapes and activities, in the many very beautiful valleys of this area. This allows time to “explore and encounter”, very much an aim of all ATS programmes. walking through such a stunning mountain landscape, barely touched by the fast paced, modern world, provides the opportunity to reflect and re-evaluate our own lives.

The Berber culture and heritage has a rich tradition of hospitality, generosity and friendliness towards others. meeting such people and enjoying conversation and interaction (as well as enjoying their superb, freshly cooked food in tagine style) is a real bonus to the hikes.

From Imlil we start our trek passing by ‘Sidi Chamharouch’, high up a narrowing river valley where 2 rivers converge. We will have lunch close to this shrine, which regularly attracts groups of religious pilgrims.

After lunch we continue to Toubkal Mountain Refuge. After a well deserved dinner of traditional Berber fayre, we spend the night camping nearby (or in the Refuge itself).
Day 2

toubkal refuge (3200m) > toubkal summit (4167m) > imlil > marrakech : 9 hours of trekking

Early departure after breakfast for the ascent of Toubkal.

At the summit we will enjoy fantastic 360 degree panoramic views of the Atlas Mountains, the peaks of the Anti-Atlas including its highest point, the Siroua (3304m) and the Haouez Plains.

Time to enjoy the views, take photographs (including the impressive summit metal ‘cairn’) and relax a little before we begin our descent.

We return to the Refuge, passed Sidi Chamharouch shrine and back to Imlil village.

We then return to Marrakech by executive minibus, 4x4 or taxi.
