The tour starts at the Marrakech hotel. You will receive full details of exactly where to meet your Group Leader on the Joining Instructions which will be sent to you 2-3 weeks before your trip starts. Even today, the name Marrakech conjures up images of scenes from The Arabian Nights with its busy souks (markets) and twisting alleyways. This remarkable city, dating from the 11th century, never fails to satisfy the curiosity of adventurous travellers. It has everything from the graceful architecture of the Koutoubia Minaret, which dominates the skyline, to the throbbing atmosphere of a medieval fair in the great open square, the Djemaa el-Fna, in the heart of the medina. Hotel - 1 night The hotel is located just outside the city walls around the old Medina. It is about a 25 minute walk to the main square Djemaa el Fna but close to local shops and restaurants
Drive to Imlil, trek to Neltner
This morning you leave Marrakech and drive across the plains towards Tahanaoute, an ancient marketplace on the edge of the mountains. The landscape changes as the plains gradually give way to mountains, with the impressive snow-covered peaks of the High Atlas looming in front of you. Following the road right to its end you arrive in the village of Imlil (1740m above sea level, approx 90 mins drive).
From Imlil you embark on the first day of your ascent of Mt. Toubkal. This is normally only possible during the summer (June to September) as there is too much snow on the high slopes at other times of year. It’s a demanding two-day walk that should only be considered by anyone who is fit and has plenty of mountain-walking experience. From Aremd the trail leads past orchards up the floodplain of the Ait Mizane Valley before climbing steeply, as it zigzags up the mountainside. All baggage and provisions are carried by mule - the multi-purpose all-terrain vehicles of the mountains. Used to plough fields, carry loads from valley to valley (often up incredibly steep and narrow tracks), turn threshing machines and even act as taxis ferrying people between the villages! Mules are an indispensable part of Berber life in the mountains. Along the way you reach Sidi Chamarouch, a place of pilgrimage for Moroccans who come to the tomb of the local marabout (Muslim holy man). You can only see the shrine from across the gorge, as it’s forbidden for non-Muslims to cross the bridge to the other side. Beyond Sidi Chamarouch the trail climbs steeply through a series of switchbacks, traverses the flank of the valley high above the river and brings you to the Toubkal Base Camp at Neltner (3207m). Approximately 5 to 6 hours walk. Camp - 2 nights (BLD)
Summit Mount Toubkal
Early this morning you set off for North Africa’s highest peak, Jebel Toubkal (4167m); the goal of many mountain walkers who visit the High Atlas. There is a steep final climb that can involve some scrambling, but the effort is rewarded by superb views from the summit of the entire Atlas range. On a clear day it’s even possible to make out the hazy outline of the Atlantic coast to the west and the sands of the Sahara Desert to the east. After resting on the summit, you make your way back to Neltner where you rest for the night. All in all it’s a long but rewarding day - approximately 8 to 9 hours walking (including rest stops). (BLD)
Descend from Neltner, Marrakech
You pack up camp and descend back down to Imlil (approx. 4 hours) where you meet your vehicle to drive across the plains back to Marrakech. As it is only about a 1½ hour drive you have almost a full day to explore the fantastic city of Marrakech, to sample the delights of this exotic city, visit some of the impressive sites or do some last-minute shopping. Hotel – 1 night (B)
The trip ends after breakfast. (B)
