Classic trek encompassing three peaks over 4000m, including an ascent of Mt Toubkal


Toubkal Summit

 During Morocco mountain trek, we plan to summit Jebel Toubkal, North Africa's highest peak (4167m), Jebel Ouanakrim (4088m) and the lesser-known Jebel Adrar n'Dern (4001m). However, this trek offers far more than peak-bagging as we discover seldom-visited gorges, passes and valleys and as we cross the High Atlas Range, we are rewarded by spectacular views as far as the Sahara to the south. Some of our campsites are in high valleys, often cut off by snow in the winter but used as pastures during the summer months. One night we camp near Lake Ifni with the chance of an afternoon swim. When our trek is over we return to Marrakech to cool off in its pleasant gardens or to visit the souks for some last minute bargaining.
