Not an easy trek, but worth it. First 12 kilometers from Aroumd to the refuge Toubkal are very scenic. Then the climb commences. Its a good idea to have a guide with you to help you up and down. Our cooked for us in the refuge and carried our things on the mule. Priceless.

Never underestimate the mountains and the weather!!! First day walk from Imlil to base camp at 3100m, next to the refuge. Very hot day at 40... More

We had a fab time climbing Toubkal, first day up to the hut, a long day up (6 hrs or so, 1400m up) but lots of wee places to rest and have stops. The hut was bigger than I expected. Our guide and mule man cooked up a delicious dinner. Next morning after a 5am breakfast we started the 3... More

Had the pleasure of traveling to Morocco and being guided by lahcen igdem, from the Imlil Authentic Toubkal lodge -- he really made the area come alive! Friendly, easy to talk to, and a extremely knowledgable about the area. I would go back to the imlil Valley just to explore the area, knowing he would take care of making the... More

A superb trek to the summit of the highest mountain in north africa. From refuge to summit and return takes about 6 or 7 hours for an average walker. Walking pole is useful as descent is sometimes on slippery scree. Make sure to takes plenty of water. Although possible to do independently the path is not clearely defined at places... More

This hike is described as challenging but not technical which I would say is slightly downplaying the difficulty for all but the most experienced and fit hikers, which category we included ourselves in until Toubkal! We did it over two days in June and we did not use a guide, it is not essential as the route is clear but... More

Great experience! Pity about the bad weather at the summit when we went though. The path after the refuge is a bit sketchy and inexperienced hikers might get a shock.

Stunning views, lovely people. Worth a four hour hike through varying scenery, would love to return and attempt the mountain as we had a very good guide.
