6 days trek High Atlas Trek Crowned by Toubkal Summit Ascent

Would you like to climb Jebel Toubkal but rather not straight off? Then this might be the perfect trek for you.
With a slow start through the picturesque Berber villages your body will naturally acclimatize to the altitude. Colourful landscape will change from day to day and so will your physical condition. Gradually you will not focus on the altitude any more but instead the Berber villages and traditions will capture your entire attention. Once we reach the turquoise lagoon of Lake Ifni you will feel completely ready to conquer the highest peak of North Africa in the next two days!

DAY 1

TREK DAY 1 Marrakech-Imlil-Tacheddirt (2314m)

Pick up in Marrakech after breakfast (9am) and drive to Imlil via Asni. Imlil is the principal trailhead for walkers and is a busy market town. You’ll meet your guide and mule team in Imlil and set off along the valley towards Tacheddirt, some 8kms from Imlil. The trail climbs up the pass at Tizi n'Tamatert (2279m) and then down to the pretty village of Ouanesekra and then onto Tacheddirt (2314m) where you usually spend the night camping at the river-side.
Approx. 5-6 hours walking time (844m ascent & 150m descent)
Meals Included: Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: Camping
Transport (where relevant): Private Transfer

DAY 2

TREK DAY 2 Tacheddirt – Tizi Likemt (3555m) - Azib Likemt

This morning starts with a long slow ascent across the valley and up to the pass at Tizi Likemt (3555m). It is fairly tough going with a long ascent and loose scree on the ground. From the pass, there is a fine view of Toubkal and its sister peaks. Then it is a long downhill descent to the village of Azib Likemt (2600m), where you camp for the night.
Approx. 5-6 hours walking time (1241m ascent & 955m descent)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: Camping
Transport (where relevant): n/a

DAY 3

TREK DAY 3 Azib Likemt - Tizi n' Ououraine (3120m) – Amsourzerte

Today is easier than the previous. The trek takes you through a variety of landscapes including more fantastic views of Toubkal and the Ifni Dome from Tizi n’Ououraine (3120m). The trail leads on towards Amsourzerte (1797m), arguably one of the nicest villages in the region, where you’ll spend the night in a simple village Gite.
Approx. 5-6 hours walking time (520m ascent & 955m descent)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: Village Gite
Transport (where relevant): n/a

DAY 4

TREK DAY 4 Amsourzerte - Ifni Lake (2392m)

Heading West out of Amsourzerte, you pass through several small villages on your way towards Ifni Lake, the only lake in the High Atlas Mountains. The Lake is surrounded by towering peaks, scree and rubble and is a pleasant place to set camp and spend the afternoon relaxing at the shore.
Approx. 3-4 hours walking time (595m ascent)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: Camping
Transport (where relevant): n/a

DAY 5

TREK DAY 5 Ifni Lake - Nelter Hut (3207m)

Today is the hardest day, heading up a long steep path up a scree slope towards the pass at Tizi n'Ouanoums (3684m), a narrow ledge between two shafts of rock. From here it is a long zigzag descent down a precipitously steep scree slope to Nelter Hut, a mountain refuge where you’ll spend the night. The dorms at Neltner tend to be crowded with other trekkers aiming to tackle Toubkal early next morning so in the summer and when the weather allows we typically camp at the Refuge.
Approx. 5-6 hours walking time (815m ascent & 477m descent)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: Mountain Refuge / Camping
Transport (where relevant): n/a

DAY 6

TREK DAY 6 Toubkal Refuge – Toubkal summit (4,167m)– Imlil

Today you will be up early for the ascent of Toubkal (4,167m). It’s a challenging trek to the summit, but, weather permitting, you will be rewarded for your efforts with incredible views over the Atlas Range and the Sahara Desert. After the glory of the summit, you will retrace your steps to the Toubkal Mountain Refuge and then follow the well-trodden path back to Imlil, passing the holy Muslim site of Sidi Charmmharouch. Once you arrive in Imlil, you will be transported back to Marrakech, arriving in the early evening.
Approx. 10-12 hours walking (960m ascent & 2427m descent)
Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch
