Once in Imlil, you will be introduced to your friendly guide and muleteers before beginning the trek.

Ascend through the village, discovering cascades and catch glimpses of Berber life in the mountainside. Watch signs of inhabitation fall away as you climb out of the valley, and into the raw nature of the High Atlas.

Take a lunch break at Sidi Chamharouch, where you will enjoy sweeping views of the mountains, good food, and a refreshing pot of tea. After lunch, we we will continue on for roughly 3 hours to reach the Toubkal refuge.

Watch the valley transform into a deep chasm as you climb above it. Observe clouds of alpine bird circling in flocks overhead. Pass by mules in saddled in technicolour textiles. Spend the night at the refuge, and enjoy a traditional Berber meal for dinner.

Trekkers will have the opportunity to witness an outstanding sunrise from the summit of Mount Toubkal. In order to catch this unforgettable panorama, we will start the day with breakfast at roughly 3:30 am and start walking at 4:00 am. The trail is a steep, but very rewarding 3 hour climb.
As we reach the summit, watch a fiery orange haze will emerge from the horizon, casting a silhouette against the rocky landscape. Slowly, you will see the advancing light reveal the dramatic beauty of the High Atlas.

​After enjoying the view from the summit, we will make our way back to the refuge (roughly 2 hrs).

We will walk another 2 hours down the winding valley before stopping for lunch at Sidi Chamharouch. Another 2 hours of descent will take you back to the village of Imlil. The tour can end in Imlil or in Marrakech, depending on your preference.

What to pack

What to pack?
Visitors are advised to prepare for mountain conditions. It is normally warm and exposed during the day, and cold in the evenings, and very cold on the summit!  You will feel the raw power of the mountains. Note: there are opportunities to rent equipment. Let us know in advance.

  • Good hiking shoes are absolutely essential. The trail is long and can be rough and uneven at times, good foot support will make the journey far more enjoyable.
  • Light comfortable clothes for the hiking. Light, long sleeves and long pants are ideal hiking attire as they will help to keep the sun off.
  • Warm layers, for the night and the early morning start on the second day. A jacket, long pants, gloves, and a warm hat are recommended, as the morning will be very cold.
  • Sun protection. The sun at high elevations is strong. It is wise to bring sunscreen, a sun hat, and polarized sunglasses, as much of the hike is very exposed.
  • A buff or a scarf. This will help protect your face from the wind as well as help you to keep warm the morning of the summit .
  • Lip balm & moisturizer. This is one that is easily forgotten, but when coming to areas drier than our skin is used to, lip balm and moisturizer are an essential part of staying comfortable.
  • Trekking poles (optional). Some of the terrain is fairly uneven, trekking poles can be helpful for navigating these parts, and for the steep downhill, to keep the weight off your knees.
  • Ice axe and crampons (November-April). These will be necessary for navigating winter conditions on the mountain.
  • Camera (optional). The views from the top are incredible.
  • Your favourite snacks (optional). The hike, although not exceptionally long is at a very high altitude, which can make it very tiring. Although your guide will have some nuts and dates for sustenance, a little bit of your favourite chocolate or candy can come in handy. Experience has shown that having chocolate or your favourite snack, on hand can be a big morale booster when the going gets tough. Know your body and your energy levels.
  • A sleeping bag (optional). Although the refuge offers blankets, some prefer to have their own sleeping bag as well
  • Portable Power Bank (optional). If you spend a lot of time on your favourite device and want to charge it overnight, a portable power bank may be necessary, as the refuge near the summit may not have consistent power.
  • Toilet paper
  • Headtorch (recommended)
