Our best two days toubkal trek itinerary is as below:
Day one: Marrakech – Imlil – Toubkal Refuge. n the early morning, short transfer to Imlil where we meet the team. We start our hike with a beautiful climb to the village of Aremd, terraced crops, irrigation canals, then up to Sidi Chemharouch shrine, to reach the Toubkal refuge at 3207m. 5 to 6 hours of walking. Night in a refuge.
Day two: Refuge – Toubkal summit -Refuge – Imlil – Marrakech. The ascent to the summit, on a good trail and good tracks, presents no difficulty, except altitude. The trail goes up a small valley and leads to the wide ridge that leads to the summit. From here you dominate a large part of the Atlas, the plains of Haouz to the north, the Ifni lake to the south, and an endless horizon towards Ouarzazate and the desert.
The descent is made by the same route and, from the refuge, after lunch, return to Imlil. The driver is waiting in the village to return to Marrakech and drop you at your accommodation late afternoon.
