Winter Toubkal Climb

This is a wonderful winter break to Climb Mt toubkal in Winter the spectacular Mountain the high Atlas of Morocco in North Africa in Winter conditions.


The Climb Mt Toubkal in Winter is different in nature to the summer climb in that it will be over snow and ice and will require mountaineering clothing and snow and ice travel techniques.

There is time to get accustomed with using crampons (if required) and this climb is an excellent introduction to trekking and living in snow conditions.

Day 01: Marrakech - Imlil - Toubkal Refuge
After a transfer to the little village of Imlil we begin our trek. Heading along the Maizane Valley, we first pass the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamharouch. We then continue east and by crossing the flood plains our route takes us along mule tracks and up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. Crossing the river we eventually come to the pastoral shrine of Sidi Chamharouch, which attracts tourists and pilgrims. From here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and the Toubkal Refuge (3206m), our stop for the night. Approx. 4 to 5hrs walking.

Day 02: Toubkal Refuge - Toubkal Summit -Toubkal Refuge
Early in the morning we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us 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 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. We will retrace our steps when we return down the mountain and head back to the Toubkal Refuge where we will spend the night.

Day 03:  Toubkal Refuge - Imlil - Marrakech
Today we walk back from the Toubkal Refuge to Imlil. After arrival in Imlil we will transfer back to Marrakech.
