“Wonderful trek but quite hard to your feet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 NEW

We slept one night at Imlil and next morning we went up to half way (3200m) and spend night at there. Next morning, 4.00, started to climb to summit.
It is not that difficult to climb there but it need good physical condition.
Next day you feel with your feet that you have been climbing :-)
We didn´t take a guide, you can do it it with out guide. It is just a little tricky at start but later it is quite straight forward way up.

“Great trek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 NEW

I totally recommend taking a longer route than the standart two day thing. We took a 4 day trek, going from Imlil to Tiziane, Refuge Azib Tamsoult, Refuge Nelter, Toubkal summit and Imlil.
We had just a guide, carried everything by ourselves and it was a great experience.
I was used to Alpine standarts, and this is almost like it. Mountains are beautiful, acommodation is on a bit lower level, but definitely worth it.

“Mighty climb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We did this climb with 10year old son. It was a challenge, in terms of duration and heat, but it was very enjoyable and reaching the summit was worth all the sweat and effort. We stayed a night in base camp which was fun and we met lots of other like minded travellers! Great achievement and the hike was made easy with lots of places em route to buy water etc! Would recommend this hike to anybody who wants a challenge with great views!

“A worthwhile trek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

There are lots of ways to tour around Imlil and trekking is certainly a great way to see, smell and feel the Toubkal range. There are a few trekking centres in the village and our host Lahcen Ighrem is very well respected by his peers

“Beautiful Trek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Mount Toubkal not only looks magnificent, but it also offers a beautiful trek. The path leading up to the mountain itself is well maintained, and as you ascend, the views of the High Atlas mountains are breathtaking. Not a very difficult trek, should be possible for most levels, but it is well worth it!
