6 DAY MOUNT TOUBKAL CIRCUIT FROM MARRAKECH
DAY 1: MARRAKECH –
IMLIL – TACHEDDIRT
Atlas Mountains trip from Marrakech with “Atlas Mountain Hiking” offers you Toubkal trekking experience and we leave Marrakech After traditional breakfast and drive to Imlil via Asni. Imlil is the principal trailhead for walkers, and a busy market town. There is a constant movement of people coming down from the mountains, and an equal supply of activity from those about to embark on their adventure. We meet our mule team and once all our gear is loaded we begin walking along the valley towards Tacheddirt, some 8kms beyond Imlil. Soon the trail begins to rise as we climb up to the pass at Tizi n’Tamatert (2,279m). We then descend to the pretty village of Ouaneskra and continue, for a further half-
DAY 2: TACHEDDIRT –
Crossing the valley we begin a long, slow ascent to the pass at Tizi Likemt (3,555m). The going is quite tough as there is a considerable amount of loose scree on the ground. At the top we enjoy our first fine view of the Toubkal massif before a long downhill descent to the village of Azib Likemt, where we camp for the night.
DAY 3: AZIB LIKEMT –
TIZI N’OURAI – AMSOUZERT VILLAGE
This long, but relatively easy, day takes us through a variety of contrasting landscapes. From Tizi n’Ououraine (3,120m) we enjoy further views of the Toubkal massif, including the summit, the east face and the Ifni Dome (3,876m). The trail leads on towards Amsouzert, one of the most striking villages in the region, where we spend the night – dormitory-
DAY 4: AMSOUZERT –
IFNI LAKE 2600M
West of Amsouzert are several small villages, which we explore as we make our way towards Ifni lake, the only lake in the massif. It is a memorable sight, surrounded by rocky mountains and giant heaps of rubble, and is unusually deep. We expect to arrive by lunchtime and spend the afternoon relaxing at the shore. We camp tonight in this area.
DAY 5: IFNI LAKE – TOUBKAL REFUGE 3207M
By now we should be both fit and acclimatised, and ready to tackle the hardest day of the trek. We make our way along a steep path that leads up a seemingly endless scree slope. At length we reach the pass at Tizi n’Ouanoums (3,664m), a narrow ledge between two shafts of rock. From here it is a long zigzag descent to Nelter Hut, a mountain refuge where we spend the night (or alternatively camp outside).
DAY 6: MT TOUBKAL SUMMIT –
We leave before dawn, following a well-
