Toubkal Ascent 3 Day



Winter toubkal treks:

Winter is the best time to trek in Morocco. The mountains are snow covered, the valleys look beautiful and the atmosphere is wild and ancient. We are specialise in organising and running winter treks, leading you and your group through high mountain passes, at altitudes of thousands of feet and guiding you through deep forests and villages full of Berber people and culture.

For you to trek in the winter, you must be experienced, prepared and fit. The treks will involve the use of mountaineering skills at altitude and include the use of equipment such as crampons and ice axes. You must be confident in your abilities if you wish to trek at this time of year. If you are in any doubt, contact Mohamed and Brahim for more information.

Our team can guide you up all of the peaks over 4000m in the Toubkal National Park, including Ouankrim, Tazaghart, Tizi Melloul and of course, Mount Toubkal itself. An adventure like this can be designed to fit over an 7-day period or just as a 2 or 3-day stint.

All of the treks listed can be changed, extended or shortened to meet your requirements. Treks can start on any day to suit your needs,




 

 

Day 1: Marrakech – Imlil – Tamsoult Mountain Refuge

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Marrakech at 9.00am. Your driver will take you to the starting point of your trek at Imlil (1,780m) where you will meet your guide and muleteer (about 1 ½ hour’s drive). Once you have loaded up the mules, you will begin your trek, which starts with a fairly stiff climb out of the Imlil valley, up to the Tizi n Mzik pass (2,489m), which offers dramatic mountain views. From here, the trail descends down into the spectacular Azzadene valley, known locally as the valley of colour. You will pass the summer village of Azib n’Tansoult and the pretty D’Irhouliden waterfalls, which flow year round before continuing to the Lepiney mountain refuge (3,000m) where you will be spending the night.

Approx. 6 hours walking (1,220m ascent)

Day 2: Lepiney Mountain Refuge – Aguelzim Pass (3,560m) – Toubkal Refuge 

This morning you will embark on a fairly stiff climb out of the Azzadene Valley, heading towards the Toubkal Refuge where you will be spending the night. On the way you will pass back via the D’Irhoulidene waterfalls before climbing the Aguelzim Mountain pass (3,560m). Lunch will be taken in a spot with panoramic views over the Atlas Mountain Range. After taking in the scenery you’ll begin a descent to the Toubkal Mountain Refuge (Neltner Hut) at 3,200m. The dorms at the refuge 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. 7 hours walking (600m ascent & 443m descent)

Day 3: Toubkal Refuge – Toubkal Summit (4,167m) – Imlil. Transfer to Marrakech

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 & 2,427m descent)
