Itinerary of Toubkal Essaouira combined trip

Day 1Marrakech – Imlil valley – Toubkal Refuge 3207m

Transfer from Marrakech to Atlas mountains village Imlil. We begin our atlas trekking from Imlil to the Refuge. Heading along the Mizzane valley, we first pass the village of Aremd. We then continue east, and by crossing the flood plains, our route takes us along mule tracks and up into the high rocky cliffs above the valley. We pass the river to the religious shrine of Chamarouch, which attracts tourists and pilgrims. The trail continues to climb steadily, snaking and zigzagging its way up to the snowline and the Toubkal Refuge.

Day 2Refuge – Toubkal peak 4167m – Neltner Refuge

Early in the morning, we attempt the summit of Jbel Toubkal 4167m,  the highest peak in North Africa. Our route takes us up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the Toubkal Refuge 3207m. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the eight and the altitude will make the going quite challenging in parts. The views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile. When you reach the summit, you will see that the vistas across the surrounding landscape are quite breathtaking. There are unrestricted views in every direction, from the Marrakech plain to the high Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti Atlas and Sahara. We will retrace our steps when we return down the mountain and head back to the Toubkal refuge, where we will spend the night.
