Toubkal Ascent Winter climb (7 days)

This is an ideal trip if you would like a challenging week of trekking. The ascent of Toubkal is not technical but requires crampons and ice-axes. The south and north routes are available, but Brahim and Mohamed would not recommend climbing in winter without an experienced guide and good winter walking and climbing experience. Contact them if you would like to know more.


Day One: Marrakech

The first day of your trek will be your transfer from Marrakech to a hotel or a riad. Remember that Brahim and Mohamed can arrange transfers from Marrakech easily.

Day Two: Imlil - Tizzi Mzzik - Imlil

You will then transfer to a village near to Imlil and begin an acclimatization trek that passes above Imlil to Tizi Mzzik at 2489m where you canl stay the night in a local house.

Day Three: Imlil - Sidi Chamarouch - Toubkal Refuge

You will head back down to Imlil where you will meet your mules and porters and begin making your way the Toubkal refuge, practicing your ice-axe use and walking in crampons. The day should be around 5 hours long

Day Four: Toubkal Refuge - Ouankrim - Toubkal Refuge

Day 4 will be an early start for your group as you head up Ouankrim, a neighboring peak, to help you acclimatize to altitude, before heading back to the refuge for the night.

    We spent a very good few days both at Ouzoud and Toukbkal. We all enjoyed it very much !

    Our guides Omar amd Ibrahim were very good and looked after the party very well. All the food was excellent, and the whole team worked very well.

    For me it was my second time to the Atlas mountains and it was just as good as the first time.

    The snow made it very different for me, and we were very lucky with the weather for our Toubkal ascent it was just great.

    We have all left with very good memories of the atlas and we hope to return one day.

    We would all like to say a very big thank you for organising our Treks for us and please say thank you to Omar and Ibrahim again for us.

    I couldn't praise Mohamed & his team more highly for feeding us well, entertaining us musically and guiding those you needed it to the top of Toubkal. We were a huge party of 25 and our transfers to & from marrakesh went without a hitch; our many different needs were well catered for and not one of us got any sort of "tummy bug" during the trip. If I return to Morocco I will certainly use Brahim & Mohamed Toudaoui's comany again - 100% recommended!
