Full description
On the first day, you will be picked up from your hotel in Marrakesh and transferred to the starting point. You will begin the ascent, passing the village of Aremd and the Sidi Chamarouch shrine before crossing floodplains and heading to the rocky cliffs above the valley. You will have a chance to marvel at the stunning views before stopping for the night in a refuge.

On the second day, perhaps the most exciting day of the trip, you will climb to the summit of Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. This can be a challenging walk with some scree and high altitudes. However, the breathtaking views will make everything worthwhile. You can see from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas Mountains in the North and the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara Desert in the South. You will retrace your steps to return back down the mountain and spend the rest for the night at the refuge. 

On the final day, you will eat some breakfast before a relaxing walk back down the mountain to Imlil. Enjoy a lunch in a guesthouse on the way down and rest as you are driven the hour and a half back to Marrakesh.
