Marrakech to Imlil
Arrive Marrakech and spend time exploring this amazing city and have lunch before our 1.5hr transfer by minibus to the Berber mountain village of Imlil (1700mts) where we stay the night in a guest house and make final preparations for the trek.
Imlil to Aziib Tamsoult
After breakfast we load up all equipment and food supplies and leave Imlil for Azib Tamsoult. As we leave the village of Imlil we pass through walnut and cherry orchids making our way up the Mizane valley before heading west over the Tizi Mzik pass (2489mt) for lunch. The trail then slowly leads it way to Azib Tamsoult (2400mt) our camp for the night. Approx 6hrs walking
Azib Tamsoult to Netler Refuge
Today is a planned acclimatisation day. We leave Camp early morning and our aim for today is the summit of Aglzim (3500mt).Once on the summit we will have time to enjoy the stunning views over the High Atlas before starting our decent into camp. Finally arriving at camp (3206mt) in the Mizane Valley at the foot of Mt Toubkal late afternoon. Approx 7hrs walking
Early in the morning we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toubkal (4167mt), the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going quite difficult in parts. The views along the way make the climb more than worthwhile. When we reach the summit there are unrestricted views in every direction, from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara. We will retrace our steps as we return down the mountain and head back towards Imlil for late afternoon. Approx 10 hrs walking
Imlil to Marrakech
After a relaxing breakfast it’s a short drive back to Marrakech. Time permitting, we can explore Marrakech, before transferring to the airport for our flight home.
