One of our founders left last November to climb the highest peak in North Africa: the famous Toubkal.
Our solo traveler first leaves the magnificent city of Marrakech, where he spent a few days of rest, between visiting the Medina, mosques, or the lush gardens of Majorelle.
He took a shared taxi to the small mountain village of Imlil. This village is not too far from Marrakech: 2 hours maximum trip.
Most of the climbs start from this village because there is a guide center approved by the Moroccan state. Since the end of 2018, it is not allowed to hike alone, without a guide in these mountains.
To reach the summit of Toubkal and return to Imlil, it takes 2 days of hiking. The level of difficulty is relatively accessible … while the views you will see are incredible!
The first day of walking is the easiest, you will reach in a few hours the refuge where you will spend one night, before starting the ascent of Toubkal the next day again.
After a night cut off from the world, in the middle of the mountain, with a glittering sky of 1001 stars, you will wake up determined to climb the last few hundred meters that separate you from the summit of the Toubkal.
Enjoy this moment of pure communion with nature: the wind, the mountain sun, the physical effort … and especially this incredible view.
