Its serene, unspoiled, full of ancient culture and brimming with shopping and amazing food. You have to be able to say "no" or barter hard with the kocals. They drive a hard bargain but its worth it. Part of the adventure. The weather can be changable so go well prepared. Nothing wrong with a rucksack containing both a hoodie and... More

My second time on Mt. Toubkal - this time with a lot of snow. A complete different experience due to the amount of snow already starting at 2.500 m. The summit haven't been touched for a couple of days due to snow and wind - making the ascent a bit more special. Watch the last steps to the summit here:... More

Tricky at first but crampons become your friend. Bring good fleeces and some snacks as the food can be a bit boring after a while. Trek to imili was challenging so train as it can be a bit steep with crampons and ice. Refuge hut was freezing mad trek to the toilets as well so be prepared for that. My... More

Amazing view at the top. Apparently a mild hike during the summer months and a bit more challenging during the winter. We hired a local guide through Dar Adrar in Imlil where we stayed a night, then hiked to the refuge to sleep one night. The next day we summited and returned to Imlil to take a car back to... More

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
