Toubkal and Ouanoukrim climb 3 days

toubkal ouanoukrim climb 3 days

Toubkal Ouanoukrim climb: 3 day trek to make the ascent of Jebel Toubkal, the highest summit in North Africa, the neighbouring summit of Ouanoukrim (4088m) is also a worthy objective. Although Toubkal is of course the highest and thus most people’s principle objective, many find that Ouanoukrim affords a more interesting climb. Certainly both afford equally spectacular views across the Atlas mountains that on clear days can extend as far away as the Sahara desert.

Maximum Elevation: 4,167meters

Accommodation:  Camping or Neltner hut
