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.

excellent climb, do it with a guide so he can search the path for you as it's not clearly marked if you set off in the dark of the early morning. Not technically difficult

Don't forget to take a head torch. For my wife she was glad she started in the dark, because if it was fully light she may have had second thoughts, Also need good boots and spare very warm clothes for the summit which canbe freezing even if it is 20C at the start. Well worth walking WITH a guide.

We do a lot of walking at home but this was one step on in the challenge stakes for us, we were nervous about it but so pleased we have done it, an amazing experience. If you are moderately fit and think you might enjoy it...just do it. The walk to the refuge is constantly uphill but pleasant, with some... More
