Mount Toubkal Trek Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Marrakesh

Welcome to Morocco! Arrive at Marrakesh Menara International Airport and transfer to your hotel for your first night in Morocco. If you arrive early, enjoy exploring the incredible city of Marrakesh.

Day 2 Transfer to Imlil and trek to Tamsoult

Travel from the city of Marrakesh to the village of Imlil (1,740 m/5,709’). The 1.5-hour drive takes you into the Atlas Mountains, and Imlil is the well-known starting place for many mountaineering excursions. Begin your trek by hiking up to the Tizi-n-Mezzik mountain pass (2,489 m/8,166’), where you can enjoy beautiful views of Imlil and the Azzaden Valley. The cook will prepare lunch as you rest in the shade of a juniper forest. After lunch, continue hiking down into the Azzaden Valley to Tamsoult Village (2,250 m/7,382’). Spend the night in the Tamsoult Refuge or choose to camp in the area.

Day 3 Trek to Toubkal Refuge via the Aguelzim Pass

Start today with a tough but rewarding climb up from the Azzaden Valley past the Ighouliden waterfalls to the Aguelzim mountain pass (3,560 m/11,680’). Enjoy a lunch stop here with incredible views of the Atlas Mountains before continuing to hike to the Toubkal Refuge (3,207 m/10,522’) where you’ll spend the night in one of two mountain huts in this location. This refuge is very popular with trekkers getting up early to hit the summit of Mount Toubkal, so you will probably share the large bunk rooms with like-minded fellow trekkers.

If the day is clear, you will have spectacular views of the Atlas mountain range and part of the Sahara Desert. You’ll also be able to see the well-used trail that leads back to Imlil. Enjoy the moment of reaching the summit and pause to rest for the trek back down the mountain and all the way back to Imlil. After a long day on the trail, you will be transferred back to Marrakesh by early evening (typically about 5:00 PM). If you have the energy, explore the central square of Jemaa el-Fnaa and sample the open-air restaurants.
