Mount Toubkal, known locally as Jebel Toubkal stands at 4167m above sea level and commands superb views of the High Atlas Mountains. Our approach trek passes through remote villages that offer an insight into the life of the Berbers, a culture that has hardly changed for centuries.
Mount Toubkal in Winter
Our Mount Toubkal in Winter Trek follows a programme of acclimatisation we aim to make an ascent of Ouankerim (4088m), Morocco’s third highest summit and Toubkal (4167m), the highest mountain in North Africa. The views across the Jebel Siroua and towards the Sahara are well worth the effort. Reports say “What a great trip! You get the full hit of everything in Morocco; hustlers, markets, wacky spices, beautiful mountains, great food and really friendly people make it a trip to be remembered for a long time”.
As the initial slope on the ascent of Toubkal is fairly steep and in icy condition a fall could have serious consequences, we do insist that participants have previous experience of walking with crampons and know how to do an ice axe arrest.
This trip will operate with a minimum of 2 participants using a local leader and a UK leader will accompany groups of 6 or more.
