We started our climb under a star lit night and saw the sun break over the mountaintops. It was a demanding walk of 3 hours from the refuge but we were rewarded with spectaculra views of the Atlas mountains.

We did a 2 day trek from Imlil, which was hard work but nothing compared to climbing the mountain. You start at 4am, avoiding climbing in midday heat, and also crowds at the summit, so a head torch is essential. It takes a good 3 hrs from the base to the summit.

Toubkal is a great climb, accessible to anyone who is reasonably fit. It's not necessary to hire a guide as the route is well marked. Most people leave the refuge in the dark at 5am, so definitely take a torch. Also, make sure you take a decent pair of trainers!

We were looking to escape for a few days from the heat of Marrakech and we found this lovely refuge high, high in the Atlas Mountains only 1.5 hours drive away. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from where the taxi left us in the Imlil village. We were welcomed by hotel staff and guided to the hotel across... More

Fabulous, challenging hike without the need for technical skills, but with stunning views. Supported hike definitely the way to go.

If you are considering trekking up to Mount Toubkal I would highly recommend you to use the company 'Go Moco'. They were well organised, friendly, collect trekkers from Marrakech, rent equipment and will look after the extra stuff you don't need whilst on the trek. They also offer the cheapest price we could find. Our tour guide 'Omar' was brilliant.... More
