I was surprised to find good climbing peaks in Morocco! Based on the reviews, I booked a Toubkal climb and 4-day desert trek with toubkalguide.com and it was an amazing adventure! A winter ascent of Toubkal does require crampons and appropriate winter gear. When I landed in Marrakech, the airline lost all my climbing gear and the toubkalguide owner Jamal... More

TREKKING. Contact Abdul at info@darimlil.com for a trek tailored to your party. He won't disappoint. We sent a 7 day trek itinerary to Abdou at Dar Imlil and he suggested same route but much better trek and organised a guide (Rachid - attentive - friendly - knowledgeable - sense of humour), cook (Mohamed - brilliant - never had such a...

I have never thought that there is a huge peak in Morocco or North Africa! I tought that Morocco is all desert & vast lands! I was really astonished to see the immense high atlas mountains! with very breathtaking landscapes! luckily I made to this peak with the help of a local company! It's really worth going there when you... More

the trek to Mt Toubkal is safe and rewards with spectacular view. moderate experience in mountains is safe to do this without a guide but paying a small price for a guide is wise to put something back into the economy, have extra protection and often a lovely companion to inform and guide you on local Berber customs.

Such a great mountaint. It's easy to climb, only walk trek, classic is for two or three days to make the summit and back. We took it only in one, start and end in Armound.

Didn't reach Toubkal summit, but the hike is quite easy and there are good roads. My advice: book a mule

Our guide Ibrahim was knowledgeable, fun and ensured our experience was the best. Our provisions and back packs were looked after by another Ibrahm who walked ahead with the mule each... More

The first day of hiking from Imlil can be long and mentally tough, since it's difficult to know how much farther you have to go to arrive at the base camp. For very athletic people who start the trip early in the morning, it would be possible to hike the entire mountain in one day then sleep at the base... More

This was to be our 3rd summit as part of the Moroccan 3 peaks. Sadly we never made it to the summit due to the snow conditions and cold. This mountain is definitely achievable, however don't underestimate the effects of altitude sickness can have. It is worth tackling this over a weeks period to ensure you acclimatise properly.

Great walk and first taste of walking at attitude. Nothing too testing and some stunning views. Worst points are the amount of rubbish and graffiti left on the hill and in particular the human excrement and accompanying wet wipes.
