Mount Toubkal 3 Days Ascent Trek Itinerary

Day 1:Marrakech - Imlil - Toubkal Hut

Your 3-day Mt. Toubkal trekking adventure will begin with a 09h00 AM pick-up from your Marrakech hotel or Riad. After a 90 minute drive towards the High Atlas Mountains, you will reach the Berber village of Imlil (1740 m).
Meet your Atlas trekking guide and muleteer, who will load your belongings on the back of the mules, and assist you in renting hiking gear should you need any.
Leaving Imlil Valley behind, you will start your expedition by hiking up to Tizi N Mzik pass (2489 m). The latter offers a panoramic view of the mountains surrounding the area and Azaden Valley. Enjoy a picnic lunch Inside the Jeneper Forest.
After some rest, continue along Azzaden Valley to Tamssoulte village (2250 m), where you will spend the night at a local hut.

Day 2:Toubkal Hut - Aguelzim Pass - Toubkal Hut

Our destination for today will be Toubkal refuge, which is located at the foothill of the Toubkal Mount.
We will first climb to Aguelzim Pass (3560 m) past Ighouliden waterfalls. After a picnic lunch with spectacular views of the High Atlas Mountains, we continue to Toubkal Mountain Refuge, where we will be spending the night.
Please keep in mind that the accommodation there is very basic. However, it has the important things you may need.
During summertime and if Mount Toubkal weather permits, we usually opt for a camp at the refuge. Get a good night’s sleep, rest well, and get ready for tomorrow’s big day.

Day 3:Mt. Toubkal Summit - Imlil - Marrakech

Today is the day! You will face the eminent summit of the highest mountain in North Africa- Toubkal Mount. We will take advantage of an early morning start to climb the mountain; we would like to prevent the heated sunrays for as long as possible. As you might have predicted before, the routes up to the mountain are a bit challenging depending on the season.
When you get to Toubkal summit (4167m), you will feel yourself over the moon as you watch the most fabulous and magnificent views of the Atlas Mountains range and Berber villages from one side and the Sahara desert; on the other! The views from the summit will make any difficulties you faced on your way to the top worth it! We will spend some time meditating upon the breath-taking views of the Toubkal summit and then retracing our way back to Imlil past the Toubkal refuge, where you will take lunch.
Today is a rather long day of hiking, covering 900m up early morning and nearly 2,500m back down to Imlil!
Meet your driver for a smooth transfer back to Marrakech, where your 3-day Atlas Mountain trek will end.

Our group of five had an amazing time during the three-day Toubkal trek organized by Marrakech Desert Trips. Nidal was incredibly prompt in responding to our questions and emails even before we arrived in Morocco. However, it would have been even better if we had received more comprehensive information during the initial booking process, so we wouldn’t have needed to ask ad-hoc questions later on. Our guide, Mohamed, was truly exceptional. He was not only informative but also patient and kind. He ensured that we had an outstanding and unforgettable experience. Although the summit day turned out to be a bit more challenging than we anticipated, having crampons was a lifesaver. It’s important to ensure you’re properly fitted with them before leaving Imlil. The meals were a delightful surprise – far better than our expectations. We were always well-fed, and there was always enough to go around. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would definitely consider returning to this company for future adventures!

What an amazing three-day trekking adventure! Even before we left home, Nidal’s communication was excellent and consistently on point. she assisted us in organizing all the necessities for our trip. She was available to address all our inquiries through email, WhatsApp, and even phone calls. Our guide, Mohamed, was truly exceptional. His extensive knowledge and friendly demeanor made him not only a guide but also a friend during our journey. We felt a strong sense of reliability with him, and his presence truly elevated our experience. I wish I could have someone like Hassan on every trek I plan. The scenery was absolutely amazing, and we’re beyond glad we made this journey. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this agency to anyone contemplating a Mount Toubkal trek, and I wholeheartedly endorse Mohamed! Once again, thank you for providing us with this unforgettable experience!
