you may look up and think you can't make it. but just think like a mule and plod on. you'll be fine. if you get altitude, just stop and have an orange or Kendal Mint Cake. snow is also good to eat to avoid carrying to much water. (not the yellow snow...)

A tough wee trek. It is 4167 m and feels every bit of that. Set off at 5.30am and summited at 8.30 which apparently is norm. Fantastic views of the High Atlas Mountains and beyond. Cold on top so wrap up in lots of layers which can be easily put on and removed when necessary. Descent took 2 hrs and... More

Walk up from Imlil and stay at the Les Mouflons refuge, significantly better than the Neltner refuge. Set off early and be prepared for step ascent from the start with a fairly relentless climb made even more challenging by the normal effects of altitude. No "path restoration" in this part of the world! The views from the col below the... More

A nice pleasant and fairly easy to follow route of about 5/6 hrs from Imlil village via Sidi Charamouche, (which is about half way and a good place to have lunch) to the refuge at the base of Jebel Toubkal, stay at the old French refuge for the more colourful experience ( also cheaper ! ) The Nelter refuge is...

My first high trek. Couldn't have done it without the help of our wonderful guide Ahmed. Very hard, tiring climb but well worth it. The views on route and at the top simply take your breath away. If you plan to stay at refuge it is advisable to take some earplugs if you want to get some sleep before your... More

the track rather stony with shrubs and short grasses. at the start of the trek, there is a village Amed. behind Amed there is an orchard. at the back of the orchard on a small hillock, there is a gurgling brook and cascades over rocks and stones amidst trees and flowering bushes. great place to take a rest and have...

A very hard climb which knocks the spots off the stroll in the park that is Kilimanjaro. Tough but exhilarating when you reach the top.

We did a 3 day trek which included a climb to the top of toubkal. Our guide Brahim from trek toubkal / natur-atlas was great and the accommodation and meals served before during and after any of the trekking were perfect and actually as good if not better than some of the traditional morrocon meals we had eaten in the...

The views from the top are incredible though the climb is a bit strenuous, especially for those who aren't in amazing shape. I wish the trails had been better marked from the refuge up to the top but otherwise the hike from Imlil to the refuge is beautiful and easy to follow.
