A trek up the main Toubkal path to the refuge via Aroumd & Sidi Chamharouch on the first day and a summit climb on the second.
Activity code: ITCTdsAK05
Difficulty: GRADE TWO - between easy and moderate, hiking mostly along zigzagging mule tracks at upper levels for about 6 hours each day. The actual summit climb is non-technical but can be hard going. Good boots are recommended. Suitable for anyone who leads a reasonably active life. NB. hiking at altitude (from 3000m to 4167m) always involves some effort.
Duration: 2 Days
This itinerary is recommended only if you have both confidence and experience of this type of trek. We have included a night at or camping nearby the Toubkal Refuge so that you can enjoy a full day to tackle the summit but day 2 will be a very long one as you will also need to descend all the way back to Imlil.
This hike is designed to start by walking directly from your accommodation in Imlil, e.g. Douar Samra. All hikes include a guide, all meals and full back; this hike also includes a night at the Toubkal Refuge. All hikes are tailor-made so can be arranged for any number of people on any start date.
The months from December through to mid-April could possibly preclude the Toubkal summit climb due to sudden, heavy snowfalls. We shall advise you of adverse climatic conditions and an alternate nearby peak to climb, such as Jbel Aguelzim (3547m), prior to your setting out from Marrakech
All our "from" prices are for a private group of 4 persons; if you are a larger group then the price will be discounted but if there were just 2 persons the cost would be slightly higher. The prices are inclusive for land arrangements only (starting and finishing in Imlil), please contact us to arrange accommodation in Marrakech or Imlil as well as flights from your preferred airport.

- Breakfast - tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, jam, cheese plus porridge in the winter and cereal in summer.

It is recommended that you bring (depending upon season): good walking boots; sleeping bag (3 seasons); waterproofs and fleece/duvet jackets, hats, balaclavas or ear muffs; gloves; rambler or ski pole; personal toiletries; small First Aid kit, thermal underwear (Dec-May); day pack; filled water bottles; torch and batteries (LED head torches are excellent), penknife (remember not to pack in hand baggage for flight); towel, sunscreen, insect repellent, hygienic wipes, nibbles and/or dried fruit. Drinking chocolate if preferred to tea and coffee, camping mug (otherwise it is small Moroccan tea glasses for everything), energy sweets and toilet rolls could come in handy!
* Should you not wish to bring a sleeping bag all this way, we can provide extra blankets for the fairly cold overnight in the Toubkal Refuge (applies all year due to the altitude). Please advise at time of reservation.
