What to Expect

Mount Toubkal is the second highest peak in Africa and the highest in North Africa. At an altitude of 4,167m, located just a short distance from Marrakech, Toubkal can be climbed easily on a 3 day trip from the bustling City.

Day 1:
Marrakech - Tassa Ouirgane - Tizi Oussem or Azib Tamsoult
We will pick you up at your accommodation in Marrakech after breakfast at 8am and takes you to the Tassa Ouirgane (1,500m) in the Ouirgane Valley, where we begin our trek to Tizi Oussem (1,800m). Our route takes us through the juniper and redwood forests of the Toukal National Park and along the beautiful red-soiled Azzadene Valley. As we pass out from the forests there are stunning views of the surrounding mountains and we encounter small isolated hamlets and villages.

The next day you have to get up very early to have breakfast and start the ascent climb. We take step by step until we get to the point above the hut where you have a short break . After 3 or 4 hours of walking up you will reach the summit and have a breathtaking view to all the High Atlas. A break on the summit will allow you to take pictures and enjoy the views before we start going down to the refuge. A lunch will be ready for you there.
