You almost can climb till the top without special equipment and guide. The path from Imlil is an easy 4-5hrs walk till the refuge. From the refuge it takes another 3-4 hours to the top through the small glacier. Spikes are needed to climb the last 800m to the peak. Better to climb the last part early in the morning... More

The scenery is worth any discomfort to get there, We had a local guide to take us on a mornings walk and since this Morocco you get used to the unusual. In this case a shop selling all manner of touristy articles on the side of a track that couldn't have had more than 40 people passing it on a... More

Great guide, good weather and food. Kind Berber people. Interesting and varied landscape. Strong winds and cold in the mountains which did not affect too much on ascending Toubkal and Ouanoukrim.

Great experience trekking up to the summit of Mt Toubkal and back. All handled very smoothly by Ahmed. Assan, our guide was very patient with us. Everyone involved was very friendly. The trip was beautiful, the sky was blue, the hills were steep - rather steeper than expected, but it was great. Our trip was arranged through Ahmed from Dar... More

I have now climbed Mt Toubkal to many times to remember, Toubkal has to be one of my favourate mountain treks in the world and most cetainly the best in Morocco, Personally I prefer winter or spring to trek.

Walked up to the foot of Toubkal in February 2013. Very hot and sunny, we took down jackets and lots of kit but only needed at night. Having said that people we spoke to had been in snow 1 week earlier. Fantastic walking, keep within your comfort zone probably great in the summer months but caution needed in winter months.

I went up Toubkal in February with my two boys 17 and 24. I am 60 and not particularly fit. We drove up from Marrakesh to Imlil at 1700m where we met our team - our guide Ibrahim, Our cook Samir, and the mule and his owner. We loaded the bags on the mule, and walked up from Imlil to... More

What a wonderful adventure. Dar Tighoula in Imlil was an amazing place to stay. If you have some hiking experience and ask for the basic info you shouldn't need a guide, we didn't. First day took 4ish hours to the Neltner hut- with packs. Second day was approx 4hours to the summit, 3 hours down and 4hours back to Imlil.... More

In July 2012 we visited the Toubkal national park. Friends recommended the Kasbah du Toubkal as a nice place to stay, but we decided that it was a little bit too expensive. So if you take the same point of view, what are your options? We decided to drive up to the village of Imlil at just see what we... More

The climb and the desserted nature were amazing but the refuge we had to stay at was expensive and not nice. And also it was not nice to see all those poor mules carrying heavy backpacks and loads of s*** from lazy walkers.
