3 days Guided Mount Toubkal Round Trek from Marrakesh

3 Days Mount toubkal Round Trek via Aguelzim pass (3650m)

Duration: 3 days

Difficulty: medium

For three days we will walk in the Toubkal National Park and then finally ascend the “Mountain of all Mountains” – that´s how local Berber people call Jebel Toubkal, with its summit at 4167m, making it the highest peak not only in Morocco but the whole North Africa. Elation and pride is waiting for us when we reach the summit on the third day as is the view of the clouds and birds flying deep below our feet. On the previous days our trip leads us through fruit filled valleys, visiting traditional Berber villages and enjoying quiet moments in the nut tree oases and beside the river banks.

You will be accompanied by a licensed and experienced guide who climbed the Toubkal for the first time when he was six! The tour is technically not difficult and you don´t need to have any previous mountaineering experience, but you should be a little bit fit and used to walking off-road. Good trekking shoes and a wind anorak are highly recommended in any season of the year.

We will spent the nights in the simple but atmospheric mountain refugees where we will meet other travellers and enjoy the well-known hospitality and delicious cookery of Berber people.

DAY 1

Marrakech - Imlil - Azzaden valley - Tamsoult Refuge

Early morning you will be picked up in Marrakech (at your hotel or airport) by our driver. Leaving behind the urban area you pass small towns like Asni and on the small road arrive to Imlil (1,780m), the central village for departures to Toubkal Trek. After introductions to the accompanying support team we start our trek into the Azzadane Valley. We will pass Tizi N’Mzik at 2,450m, the refuge at Azib n’Tansoult and finally reach the spectacular Ighouliden waterfalls. Depending on how fit or tired you are we will spent the night in the Lipeney mountain refuge at 3,000m or before at Azib n Tamsoult.

DAY 2

Tamsoult Refuge - Aguelzim Pass (3650) - Refuge Neltner

The second day takes us on a fairly stiff climb out of the Azzadene Valley in the direction to the Toubkal Refuge.  At 3,560m we pass Aguelzim Mountain and take a well-deserved lunch break short after, enjoying the food and spectacular views over the Atlas Mountain Range. In the afternoon we arrive to the Toubkal Refuge, a traditional mountain refugee owned by the French Alpine Club and run by Family Ait Elcadi. We will experience the cosy atmosphere around the big fire place where travellers and mountaineers have met for years and prepare for the ascent of Toubkal summit next day.

DAY 3

Refuge Neltner - Toubkal Summit - Imlil - Marrakech:

We start early in the morning to reach the summit of Jebel Toubkal , the highest peak in North Africa . Our route takes us up the south circuit, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walk is relatively easy, however those unused to high altitude might find the walk quite difficult in some parts. We will take it slow and the views along the way are worth the effort! Once we reach the summit the breathtaking views in every direction open to us – from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti Atlas and the Sahara. After enjoying this special moment and taking pictures we return down to Refuge Toubkal and head back towards Imlil. Transport to Marrakech is on the same day or you have the option to spend another night in Imlil and be driven to Marrakech next day.
