Mr. Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa, Toubkal trek allows stunning views of the Atlas Mountains, Berber Villages, and verdant green valleys. this 3 days of trekking and was designed for keen walkers who want to mix a bit of backcountry into their Moroccan adventure. The views from the summit of Toubkal are amazing as you can see across the mountains to Marrakech to the north and the start of the Sahara desert to the south.
Our trail will lead you to explore the Azzaden valley, which is two main valleys of the Atlas tucked between the high peaks of Toubkal. Plus, this trail avoids the heavily trekked approach and avoid going up and down the same way.
For Trekking Atlas Mountains you need to prepare as you would for walking in any mountain region; it can be warm and sunny during the day but the weather in the mountains can quickly change from sunshine to snow and cold winds (autumn through late spring). Please do not leave any rubbish behind you; carry out what you carry in.
Atlas Treks are tailored to match the season and your level of fitness. You have the choice of basing yourself in Berber Guesthouses, from where you can take daily walks, or you can Atlas Mule Trek for 2+ days. On mule treks you usually have the choice of staying in Berber Guesthouse/with families or wild camping in 2-person tents. In addition to regular packing, here is a Check List for Atlas Trekking:
You will be picked up from your hotel in Marrakech at around 8,00am. Accompanied by an English- speaking guide drive south up over gorges and high passes of the upper valleys to the Berber town of Imlil (1740m). here we shall leave our vehicle to take a welcome glass of mint tea in our guesthouse prior to setting out for 5 hours hike towards Azib Tamsoult Refuge passing via Tizi Mzik Pass from where we will have amazing views over the berber valleys. Overnight at a nice Refuge in Tamsoult. 5h walk.
Today involves a fairly stiff climb out of the Azzaden Valley to the Toubkal refuge over the Aguelzim mountain pass at 3600 m. Lunch will be taken with spectacular views over the Atlas mountain range. Overnight in the Toubkal refuge (Neltner Hut) where you will likely be sharing a bunk room with other trekkers tackling Toubkal early the next morning. 6h walk.
Wake up early for the climb towards Mt Toubkal (4,167 m) from where you will have wonderful views over the High Atlas mountains and the Sahara desert. After that,a long way back down past the refuge and the well-worn path back to Imlil village where you will meet your driver transfers back to Marrakech. 7 to 8h walk.
We just back from Mount Toubkal trekking via Azzaden valley (April 2019). This is my second time using service of Trekking Toubkal. Houssain, the owner, is really nice, he always do his best to serve customers. We’ve got everything we requested. We also trek with same guide as last year, Mohamed ; he’s very good guide, with sense of humor and good service mind. We’d definitely visit Morocco again and using Trekking to Morocco service.
