2 Day Toubkal Hike Itinerary

Day 1:Marrakech - Imlil Village - Toubkal Hut

You will have an early start on day 1. Your driver will pick you up early in the morning and drive you south to the village of Imlil. Before getting there, we will drive through the valleys of Toubkal Massif, passing by the Haouz Plain and then past the village of Asni. Asni village will be the beginning point of our climb to the Massif. On our way up, you will see all the tiny villages scattered around the hillsides if you look down.
We continue until we reach the village of Imlil, and that’s where our adventure begins. You will meet our expert mountain guides with you to the top. We will carry your luggage and equipment on mules back. We will take care of anything that will be of a burden to you or slow you down on your trek.
Be prepared for a long uphill hike (5/6 hours) to Toubkal Refuge. We will start our trek to the mountain, passing by the shrine of Sidi Shamharouch, where you will enjoy a picnic lunch in nature. After a short break, get ready to resume your hike to Toubkal refuge, which is used as a basecamp located in the sheltering bosom of Mother Nature.
Today’s hike will effectively test your legs’ capacity and endurance before the next day’s climb. Relax and enjoy an overnight in the wild. You could either spend the night inside Toubkal refuge or in a tent, provided it is summertime.
Whichever choice you take, take a goodnight’s sleep and get ready to meet the majestic Toubkal summit on the next day.

Day 2:Toubkal Hut - Toubkal Summit - Imlil Village - Marrakech

After an early breakfast, which will be served at 5:30 AM, we start the climb to Toubkal Summit.
the routes to the mountain change depending on the season: During wintertime, they are shorter but steeper and take 3 to 4 hours. Generally, the ascent is non-technical and safe, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get challenging at some point.
Closer to the summit, there are some more tricky parts where you need to be cautious. However, our experienced guides will help you prevent risky routes and instead take you through safe ones. We will spend around 45min on the summit; we don’t want to spend too long a time so that you don’t suffer from altitude sickness.
The views from the summit are unbelievably charming, with views across the entire Atlas Mountains range and the Berber villages. The spectacular sights will make you forget any hardships you faced on your way to the top. Make sure that you don’t let your camera out for an extended period during wintertime, as the sub-zero temperature in the summit will quickly drain your camera batteries!
Upon our return to Toubkal refuge, we will take an hour or so to recover from the long hike, and then we will retrace our way back to Imlil, where you will meet your driver and eventually drive back to Marrakech.
Your 2-Day Mt. Toubkal hike will end with a drop-off at your Marrakech hotel.

We had an incredible experience with this private trek! Our journey began in Imlil, guided by Mohamed, and accompanied by Ali, our chef. Ali did an outstanding job preparing breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with tea. The meals were not only abundant but also featured delicious traditional dishes. The first day posed a bit of a challenge due to the sun’s intensity, but it was definitely manageable. For convenience, you could offload some bags onto a mule, which Ali would take along to the basecamp. Along the way, there were a few stops where you could purchase refreshments like orange juice and soda. After about 4-5 hours of hiking (including breaks), we reached our overnight stay at the basecamp. Accommodation was in shared rooms, although private rooms were available at a higher cost. Following dinner, we had a pleasant conversation with Ali, who turned out to be a really friendly guy! We inquired about watching the sunrise from the summit the next morning, and Ali readily agreed. Day 2 commenced in the dark, and unfortunately, my headlight stopped working after about an hour of walking. In a generous gesture, Ali lent me his lamp, ensuring our journey continued smoothly. The final stretch required some climbing skills as it was steep, but it was by no means insurmountable or perilous. We actually reached Toubkal summit as the first group that day, and the experience was nothing short of breathtaking and unforgettable. I want to extend my gratitude to Ali for his attentive care and valuable assistance that made this trip truly exceptional. I wholeheartedly recommend this adventure to everyone – it’s an experience you won’t want to miss!

I had an amazing time during the two-day Toubkal tour! I had the privilege of having a personal guide named Larbi. Let me tell you, Larbi was not only really skilled at guiding but also super friendly. He made it his mission to ensure I was comfortable throughout the entire climb. What I really appreciated was LArbi’s knack for setting a pace that suited me, taking regular breaks so I didn’t feel overwhelmed. He’s quite the expert on the region and its nature, sharing fascinating insights as we went along. The whole experience was truly fantastic, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone. We savored authentic lunches and dinners that added a wonderful local touch, and spending a night at the Refuge Camp was quite an adventure. The trek to the camp was pretty hot, but as you ascend the mountain, the temperature drops significantly, and it can get pretty chilly and windy. That’s why having the right gear is absolutely essential.

We recently finished the trek to the summit of Mount Toubkal, and it was a truly delightful adventure from start to finish. Our guide, Mohamed, was outstanding. His expertise about the mountain and his thoughtful approach added to the enjoyment of our journey. Despite the winter conditions making it more challenging compared to other times of the year, Mohamed led our small group with care and ensured our safety all the way to the summit. It was an incredible experience to witness the sunrise from the peak. I highly recommend this trek, especially for those seeking a unique and memorable adventure.

Our entire experience was absolutely exceptional, from the warmth and kindness of the Berber people we encountered, to the welcoming hospitality of the refuge staff. However, the standout highlight was undoubtedly Mohamed, our remarkable guide. His deep knowledge of the mountain and the trails winding through the foothills was truly outstanding. He struck a perfect balance between maintaining an invigorating pace and allowing us to take breaks when needed. If you’re in search of a good mountain adventure, look no further than Jebel Toubkal, and make sure to have Mohamed as your guide. One crucial point to note: While many online sources might label Toubkal as an easy climb, it’s important to recognize that the level of fitness required for a two-day expedition should not be underestimated. While the technical aspects might be manageable, the physical demands are significant. You’ll be hiking continuously uphill, exposed to the sun, covering nearly six miles on the first day alone. The next morning, you’ll rise at 4:00 a.m. and trek almost three miles to reach the summit. And that’s followed by an immediate return journey of those same nine miles in the afternoon, back to Imlil for your ride to Marrakech. Do not overlook the strenuous nature of this climb. However, if you’re in good shape and excited about conquering the tallest peak in Morocco, I strongly urge you to book this tour as soon as possible!
