Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Marrakech transfer to Imlil- Azib Tamsoult

Pick up from the hotel in Marrakech. After your transfer from Marrakech to Imlil (1,780m), you will set off an a 6 hour trek out of the Imlil Valley and into the Azzadene Valley. Along the way you will pass Tizi N’Mzik at 2450m, the refuge at Azib n’Tamsoult and the Ighouliden waterfalls. Overnight in Azib ‘n Tamsoult in a good Refuge. About 5 hours walking.

Day 2

Azib Tamsoult-Toubkal Refuge

Today involves a fairly stiff climb out of the Azzadene Valley to the Toubkal Refuge over the Aguelzim Mountain pass at 3560m. Lunch will be taken with spectacular views over the Atlas Mountain Range. Overnight in a Toubkal Refuge (Neltner Hut). About 7 hours walking.

Day 3

Toubkal Reguge-Toubkal Summit back to Marrakech

Early in the morning you make your attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Your route takes you up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going quite difficult in parts. The views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile. When you reach the summit you will see that the vistas across the surrounding landscape are quite breathtaking. From here there are unrestricted views in every direction, from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara. You will retrace your steps when you return down the mountain and head back towards Imlil. Transfer back to Marrakech. About 9 to 10 hours walking.
