“one of the easiest 4000m hike you can find....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

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 before the sun rise up so to be in the shadow.

“Uphill all the way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

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 good day. As I say in the title, you seem to spend all your time walking uphill, but I am retired and not really the best person to discuss serious walking or climbing

“Rachid a brilliant guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

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 2-day trek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

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 Tighoula in Imlil,
Would definitely recommend.
As I would recommend his beautiful guest house Dar Tighoula in Imlil. Thanks!

“Great Trekking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

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.
