Trekking in Morocco has to be one of the best ways to discover this intoxicating country,
Located in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains about 75 kilometres south-east of the beautiful city of Marrakech, the summit of Mt. Toubkal presents a worthy challenge.
Mount Toubkal trek takes two to three days, depending on how many days do you want to spend in the mountains. and you’ll be rewarded with views of the ruggedly beautiful terrain. Whether you’re an experienced high-altitude hiker or prefer a more leisurely trek to the summit, choose the itinerary that works best for you. for this specific trek will take two days only starting from Marrakech.
What to Expect
Mount Toubkal Trek become a very popular destination in the last 5 years. so you will have to expect to see a lot of tourists during you trek not as busy as Marrakech, you will be staying in a shared dormitory either in toubkal refuge or les mouflon so you will have to share a room with other people. accept if you asked for a private room, which will cost you extra money.
at the elevation of 3200 meters, the oxygen is less than the sea level so you may have lack of sleep at the base camp. and also in the way up to toubkal summit on the next day so you may have the altitude sickness. It’s not very common, but it happens sometimes
