Make no mistake, a winter ascent of this mountain is not for the faint-hearted! We've done it twice: once in sleet with no visibility, and the second time after a day of white-out, in the teeth of winds so strong I was knocked over! However, the walk up to the refuge is along a good trail, through spectacular scenery and... More

Awesome in every way. Our guide and his team were outstanding. The food they produced was out of this world, healthy and lots of it! The weather was amazing (though had been not good for the five days before we got there). The views were breathtaking and fellowship with friends so good. Our girls, aged 10 and 11 loved riding...

A very nice and gorgeous mountain, even in winter. Well organized for mountaineers. We love it! We will come again to see it in the Summer time!

With my friend Justin, we both call into the 'enthusiastic yet inexperienced' category we summited a snowy Toubkal in late November. We were both on a tight budget but if anything that made the trip much more enjoyable (See further down for our itinerary). Coming up from Imlil, follow the orange dots/markers!! This approach will get you on the correct... More

I was travelling with a small group (10 persons). The weather was excellent. The way down from the peak was challenging due to snow. Take appropriate personal equipment.

First time in North Africa. Great guiding by Toubkal guide who had great prices and perfect organisation. After three days trekking around various small villages we left the village at Imlil to climb the mountain. The track was well graded with a steady climb. We stopped for lunch at the shrine Sidi Chamarouch, Non Muslims are not supposed to enter... More

The route to the summit is fine. It will take a few hours. Most important, take your gloves with you!

After one night in a very nice guesthouse (auberge la vallée) in Imlil, we hired a guide and began our 2 days hike to Mount Toubkal. No need for crampons by this end of october, the weather was warm. We bought vegetables to cook our own food. It took us 6 hours to reach the refuge at the bottom of... More

It was my first mountain higher than 4000 m. When there is clean sky you can see Sahara desert from the top of the mountain. In May there are still snow and glaciers. So it is not to easy to reach the top. But when you reach it - lifetime experience!

We started the climb from the village of Imlil at around 1750m at noon, climbing the endless path till the evening. Left the next day at 5 am (pitch black), ask snowed under crampons as well as headlights were needed, and went up to the top, where it was very cold and very strong winds especially at approx 3700m.
