I've been to Morocco before ( Agadir and Marrakech) loved it and would like to go again in May 2013. However this time with a group of 5-10 people to trek to the summit of Jbel Toukbal. We will be doing it for a local chairty and therefore need to keep costs as low as possible. I have some experience in organising charity events in the UK. Snowdon / 3peaks etc
My question is that the flights are coming in at around £135 ish but cost of a guide/mule/food etc is around £150, is it possible to do the trek without a guide ? Therefore maximise the income for the charity.
I know its a 2 day 1 night trek, can we take out our camping gear/food/drinks etc and make our own way up? I have been told that the path is clearly defined and in places signed, is this correct?
Would like to hear from someone who has recently done it if possible and I'll be very interested in read their comments.
