The Trek of the Titans is quite unique to Rediscover and takes in some of the lesser-visited areas of the High Atlas. The route offers a real challenge for experienced trekkers; it is a High Atlas traverse from the southwest, Tichka Plateau (near Taroudant), right through to the summit of Toubkal (11 days walking). In the middle section you will marvel at the scenery of the Tizi n'Test and the incredible Tinmal Mosque as you transition between the two high regions.
Take yourself off the beaten track, meet the Berber people in valleys which are very rarely visited and enjoy views across the peaks surrounding the Tichka Plateau, some which have not yet been climbed. We include accommodation in Taroudant and Marrakech to make up a full fortnight plus airport transfers.
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 alternate nearby peak options, such as Jbel Aguelzim (3547m) prior to setting out from Marrakech.
PRICES - most of our holidays are bespoke so the ultimate cost of each trek is based upon:
- The number of people in your group
- Where you are starting from and to where you wish to travel at the end of the hike;
- Whether you are including any accommodation (e.g. in Imlil or Marrakech)
- Extras such as WC tent, etc.
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 Marrakech), please contact us to arrange accommodation in Marrakech or Imlil as well as flights from your preferred airport.
MEALS - examples of food & drink during trekking:
- Breakfast - tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, jam, cheese plus porridge in the winter and cereal in summer.
- Picnic lunch - fresh Moroccan salad, cheese, slicing sausage, tinned tuna fish and sardines, bread, fruit, mint tea.
- Dinner - Tajine (chicken or mutton with vegetables), spaghetti, cous cous (main courses rotate depending on duration of trek), bread, coffee, tea, cake, fruit.
