Today we transfer by car with guides to Oukaimeden, which is the trek’s starting point, and where you’ll meet your mule team to load our bags and equipment.

Day 3: Tacheddirt (2,300m) – Tamatert Pass (2,280m) – Imlil (1,740m) – Armed (1,800m)

After breakfast, you start your trek from Tacheddirt and head towards Tizi n’Tamatert pass. You will descend to Imlil valley, then to Targa Imola. Today you will have the chance to spot Toubkal Peak in the background of Ait Mizane Valley) where you will spend the night in a riad. Accommodation: a traditional riad (Jnane Imlil or similar) Meals: full board Walking distance: 5-6 hour

Day 4: Tizi Mzik Circular (1,740m – 2,664m – 1,740m)

This is an 8-hour trek west of Imlil past Berber hamlets with a stunning mountain panorama including the Oukaïmeden, Tasskssout, Imsserdan, and Azzaden valley. The walk features a waterfall where swimming, juniper, and pine forests may be possible. The trail then heads west from Imlil (1,740m) up through almond, walnut, and apple groves offering a panoramic vista of the beautiful valley and Berber hamlets of Tanghourt, Imlil, and M’Zik.  The return leg is via the same general route but via different paths via the Tizi M’Zik pass back to Imlil. Accommodation: a traditional riad (Jnane Imlil or similar) Meals: full board Walking distance: 8-9 hours

Day 5: Imlil (1,740m) to Mt Toubkal Base Camp (3,207m)

At the village of Imlil, you will leave the vehicle and, in the company of your mountain guide, begin your trek, heading along the Mizane Valley, first towards the village of Aremd and then onto the shrine of Sidi Chamarouch. Built on a moraine spur overlooking the valley floor, Aremd is the largest village in the valley. It provides an exciting mix of traditional terraced farming and streets that seem to be permanently gridlocked by goats and cattle. Continuing east and crossing the floodplain your route takes you along mule tracks and up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. Crossing the river you eventually come to the pastoral shrine of Sidi Chamarouch, which attracts tourists and pilgrims alike (although only Muslims are allowed to cross the stone bridge to visit the shrine itself). From here the trail continues to ascend steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and the Mouflons Toubkal Refuge (3,207m), your stop for the night. Accommodation: (dormitory; optional upgrade to private room depending on availability) Meals: full board Walking distance: 6-7 hours

Day 6: Base Camp (3,207m) to Mount Toubkal (4,167m)

Early in the morning, you will make your attempt at the summit of Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. The route takes you up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge and then heading across one of the numerous scree fields, where you will have to negotiate a seemingly endless carpet of boulders and rocks. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make it difficult, however, the views along the way make the walk more than worthwhile. Cresting the ridgeline, you will reach the plateau, from where it is a short walk to the summit and the vistas are quite breathtaking. From the peak 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. Retracing your steps you then return down the mountain and head back towards Imlil, before your transfer back to Marrakech. Accommodation: a riad in Marrakech Meals: breakfast and lunch Walking distance: 8-9 hrs

Some people may choose to leave today if that’s the case we will transport you to the Airport. Vibrant Marrakech is a fascinating city, home to numerous mosques, palaces, and gardens. The medina is a densely packed, walled medieval city dating to the Berber Empire, with mazelike alleys where thriving souks (marketplaces) sell traditional textiles, pottery, and jewellery.
