It is not easy because low oxygen. I did it with my kids Mary 12 and Igor 15 years old. We had very good weather, sun and not windy.

Please bear in mind that this is written in April 2015 and I'm 60 years old and traveling with a friend who's slightly older. We hired a taxi in Marrakech after negotiating a price of 300 dirhams to go to Imlil. When we arrived in Imlil about 90mins later we were dropped at the Trekking Guides Office at the beginning...

Well worth a visit, the drive up to Imil was fascinating, beautiful landscapes, the views were stunning, took some amazing photos showing agave and other heat loving plants in the foreground and snow covered mountain tops in the distance. Photos could never do justice to the natural beauty of this area. The restaurant in Imil had almost 360 degree panoramic... More

PROS: great experience in general - worth the trip, but remember the cons. CONS: there are better views in Morocco, abuse of the donkeys used to cart tourists around (donkeys BTW can only safely carry 80kgs), tourists regularly fooled into thinking this place is remote / donkeys the only way up - on the other side of the hills there...

Went over to Toubkal in March for a winter climb so this review is a bit late. Organising company was Exodus and I cannot fault them at all. All information was clear and all flights and transfers organised by them were excellent. First night in Marrakesh stayed in Hotel Gomassine whch was very comfortable. Next day began the trek and...

Climbing/hiking Toubkal was one of the main reasons to visit Morocco. We did the hike mid March while the upper reaches of the Mountains were still covered in snow. It made the scenery even more impressive. Do get a set of crampons! We did not need them on day one but on the last push up Toubkal I would not... More

While I walked up the mountain in the heavy snow and Ice, the trek is one that all can do. Of course if you struggle, either with the altitude or just with general issues, it might be best to do it in the summer when the risks are less. The trek can be done in about 5-6 up and down... More

Choosing to climb Toubkal in the Spring when the mountain had snow on it was the right decision. Fewer people and the scenery is spectacular. Not for the faint-hearted and crampons and ice an axe are essential.

Marvelous place for hiking, relaxing, and even pondering. It takes you from the noise and stress of the city to experience the beauty of a simple life.
