Even if you are one to get off the beaten path, I highly recommend this doing this hike while you are in Morocco. This 2420m ascent to the summit of Jebel Toubkal (4167m) lends you stunning views of the surrounding mountains, valleys and villages. Mountaineering experience is not necessary, but be sure that you are in shape as the hike... More

Great non-technical trek with some snow slopes, crampons up, slide down. Very professional guide provided by the local tourist office, but if you are healthy and experienced you can do without. Refuge is clean and comfortable, just don't get stuck in the dorm room with school kids (we were lucky)

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.
