4 days Toubkal trek
325£ per person
On our Mount Toubkal trek 4 days, you will climb through the wilderness, and explore some of the most spectacular spots in the high atlas mountains, including Imlil valley 1740m, the Sidi Chamarouch shrine, and the summit of Mt Toubkal.
The Toubkal Trek 4 days plan is as follows:
on day 1,
you will be picked up from your accommodation in Marrakech. Drive towards the high atlas mountains. It will take around 1h30 drive to get to Imlil valley which is the starting point of the trek. Once you get there, you will be met by our local team. Then, you will be led to a guesthouse where you will have a welcome mint tea and a look at the map of our toubkal trek 4 days. Later, you will set off on an acclimatizing hike to Tizi Mzik pass 2489m where you will have a stop for lunch prepared by a cook. After the lunch break, you will walk back down via the same route to your lodge in Imlil where you will spend the night. It will take around 4h walk.
The next day,
after breakfast at your lodge, you will start trekking along the Ait Mizane Valley. First towards the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch, which attracts tourists and pilgrims alike (although only Muslims are allowed to cross the stone bridge to visit the marabout shrine itself). The village sits besides a small waterfall, a jumbled cluster of houses that seem to melt together into an anarchic mass. Later on, you will have a stop for lunch. After that, from here the trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the Toukbal Refuge (3206m), our stop for the night. It will take around 5 to 6h walking.
On day 3,
after an early breakfast, you make your attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal. Your route takes you up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge and then heading across one of the mountains numerous scree fields. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going quite difficult in parts. However, the views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile. Once you get to the top, you will enjoy amazing views over the high atlas mountains. After a short break on the pass, you will return back via the same route to the refuge where you will have lunch and overnight again. It will take around 6 to 7h walking.
On day 4
you will walk back down to Imlil valley via the same route. You will have lunch in Imlil before transfer back to Marrakech. It will take around 4 to 5h walk + 1h30 drive to Marrakech.
