What to Expect
Day 1 – Marrakech – Imlil – Toubkal Refuge
After an early breakfast you’ll head out on the 2 hour drive to the small village of Imlil. You’ll meet up with your guide and mules there, load up and set off on the 5-6 hour trek to the small refuge below the summit. The tracks are quite steep and narrow in places. You’ll continue climbing through these remote mountains and over several passes before arriving at the refuge where you’ll spend the night, enjoying Berber hospitality. Accommodation: Les Mouflons – Toubkal Refuge
Day 2 – Toubkal Refuge – Toubkal Summit – Imlil
After an early breakfast you will set off to climb the highest peak in the Maghreb. You will reach the summit as the sun rises, rewarding you with amazing views. You won’t encounter any major difficulties during the ascent as the final peak of Toubkal is broad and there is a gradual decline when approaching the summit. You’ll marvel at the high cliffs that plunge into the opposite of the Ifni Lake. After descending from the highest point in North Africa, back down to Imlil where you will spend the night
Day 3: Imlil - Dades Valley
You will be picked up from your accommodation in Imlil and head out over the Atlas Mountains, driving over the stunning Tizi-n-Tichka mountain pass. You’ll pass through lots of Berber villages, and once you’re in the desert you’ll see riverside oases and barren hillsides dotted with Kasbahs (fortified dwellings that house families and their livestock). Along the way, you will have the option either to take a break and visit the Ouarzazate Film Studios or stop for a hike. Once you reach Dades Gorge, you have the option of going for a hike, or relaxing at your hotel
Day 4: Dades Valley - Todra gorge - Merzouga
After breakfast you will drive from Dades Valley to Todra Gorge - a massive fault dividing the High Atlas mountains, rising up 300 metres in a narrow valley with palmeries and Berber villages. Here, you can go for a hike to explore the palmery, a green oasis full of large date palms. After lunch you’ll head further into the desert to the gateway town of Merzouga to pick up supplies for your desert trip. You will then drive on to a Kasbah to pick up your camel. At sunset, you’ll trek for an hour-and-a-half by camel to a Berber camp where you will enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner, and sleep under the stars or in tents at a desert camp
Day 5: Erg chebbi Dunes - Merzouga - Marrakech
You will wake up early and walk up the dunes watch the sunrise , just prior to sunrise and take the hour-and-a-half camel ride at sunrise to explore the area further and then head back to Merzouga. When you reach Merzouga you will have breakfast and have the opportunity to shower and then you will begin your journey through the stony desert and over the Atlas mountains, with plenty of photos,on your return to Marrakech
