Toubkal trek from Marrakech 3 days / 2 nights

Toubkal trek from Marrakech 3 days / 2 nights

The ascent to Toubkal which is the highest peak in Morocco is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding mountain experiences for lovers of high-altitude hiking. If you love mountain climbing, the Toubkal trek is an experience you won’t forget. It is an adventure in the most classic sense of the word without many technicalities apart from having to be in good physical condition. The trek to Toubkal peak can be done at any time of the year but during the snow months you will have to use ice picks and other specific equipment.

Day 1 • Marrakech – Imlil (1740m-5709 feet) – Armed (2050m-6725 feet).

We begin by leaving from Marrakech by a van to Oukeimiden. Our destination is the Berber village of Imlil, about 90 km(56miles) from Marrakech and 1,740m(5709feet) above sea level. This is the starting point of the trek to Toubkal and the entrance to the national park. There we will meet the team, our expert local mountain guide and the mulero-cook. They will accompany us throughout this route. Your luggage will be carried with the assistance of a mule. We will have a mint tea before starting our trek through various Berber villages and hamlets of the High Atlas. The duration is approximately 1 hour. It is a very interesting section where we can interact with the villagers who are very friendly and hospitable people. We will continue the trek until reaching the village of Armed, at an altitude of 2050m(6725feet). Here we will stay in a hostel. At sunset we recommend going for a walk and if the weather allows it, you can enjoy the fantastic panoramic views of the Imlil Valley and Mount Toubkal with its 4167m(13671feet) altitude, the highest peak in North Africa. We will settle into our accommodation to rest and have dinner

Day 2 • Armed – Sidi Chamharouch (2,310m-7579feet) – Refugio Netler (3,207m-10521feet).

On our second day, we will have breakfast at the hostel and leave early for the Netler’s refuge. We are going to take a path that ascends regularly to the river bank through apple and walnut orchards until we reach the “Marabout Sidi Chamharouch”. It is a sanctuary often visited by pilgrims. We will enjoy lunch in the field and then continue along the path until we reach Netler (3207 m – 7579feet). This evening we will have dinner and accommodation in tents, think of it as a camping trip in Netler mountain. In case of a lot of snow or excessive cold, you will spend the night at the Netler hostel. This day is 12 linear km(8miles) – elevation 1490 m(4888feet) – walking time is app 5 hours.

Day 3 • Netler Refuge – Toubkal Summit (4,167m-13671feet)) – M´Zik – Marrakech

After an early breakfast we will leave and start the ascent to Toubkal. The ascent route begins with a steep slope of about (200m – 656feet), then smoothes out. At (3,700m-12139feet) and (3,850m-12631feet) it rises again. At which point we will find a ridge that leads to the summit of Toubkal. After enjoying the wonderful views and celebrating this challenge, we will go down through the valley until we reach the village of Mzik and from there we will return to Marrakech by road.



Tradition & Comfort

At Best Morocco Tour we believe that the experiences we offer should be real and authentic. In order to achieve that, we prefer to always include in every one of our trips and tours, authentic traditional architecture accommodations. These reflect the culture of the country and its true essence with maximum comfort and convenience. We believe that an experience is only truly appreciated, when you are submerged fully into it.


In Morocco there is a category of accommodation referred to as a “riad”. It is a traditional accommodation and with a lot of charm and personality. Some riads are true architectural treasures and look like palaces from a child’s story book. The word riad in Arabic means “Eden”. A riad is typically a spacious house whose rooms are distributed around an interior patio, enhanced by a fountain surrounded by a geometric garden, where ornamental and aromatic plants, orange trees and on some occasions even palm trees grow.

Most of the riads are old residences and palaces turned into charming hotels located in the old urban core of the cities.

There Are Riads Of All Categories:

Standard: This is equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 2*/3* accommodation.

Superior standard: Is the equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 4* accommodation.

Luxury: This is equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 5* accommodation.

Premium: Is the equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as high standing accommodation. In Morocco many premium riads are referred to as “Villas.” They are large residential-tourist complexes or resorts, usually far from the center and the hustle and bustle of the cities.

Authentic Experience

Jaimas In The Desert

During our excursions to the Sahara desert we offer the possibility of sleeping in authentic Berber camps. These are typically nestled in the middle of the dunes and under the blanket of the clear night sky filled with stars. “Jaimas” are a kind of tent used by nomadic people in their desert settlements. It is a good option to experience the desert in its purest form, it’s vastness and freedom.

Elegance, maximum comfort and convenience

In Best Morocco Tour

During our tours in the desert of Morocco we use two types of tents. Depending on the circumstances you can opt for the Berber tents; typically made from dromedary wool, cane/ wood or the costumary tents made of canvas with traditional decorative print. All tents are fully equipped to guarantee maximum comfort and convenience. However, the traveler must be conscious that this is a natural environment and the comforts of a tent in the middle of the desert cannot be compared to those of a city hotel.

This experience includes a dromedary ride to enjoy the impressive spectacle of the sunrise in the Moroccan desert as well as sunset in the dunes, full breakfast, dinner and a demonstration of traditional desert music, such as the Berber drums.
