Day 4: Mount Toubkal Ascent(4167 m)

Today we rise early to start the ascent to Mount Toubkal.

We climb via the western flank. About an hour below the summit, we enjoy our first views of the south. Reaching the top of Mount Toubkal will be the highlight of the trip! We enjoy the impressive view.

We descend by the same route and come back to the refuge to enjoy a late lunch. Dinner and stay is in the refuge.

Day 5: Mount Ouanoukrim (4089m)

Today is the heading for the second highest mountain of North Africa: Mount Ouanoukrim.

We need to scramble to get us to the summit plateau. This will be easy, but a little exposed in some places so our Guide will set up a rope where needed (about 100 meters). We also cross the summit plateau to the Timzguida summit at 4089m. We have dinner and stay in our refuge.

 

Day 6: Tizi Ouanoums (3684 m)

Today we head for Tizi Ouanoums, jammed in a steep gorge on the side of Toubkal. From here we look down the steep southerly face to Lac D’Ifni.

Afterward, we return and we drive back to Marrakech.

You can wander around the Djnaa el Fnaa square, buy (and bargain first) in the Souks. Roam around in the Medina. Or just sit, relax and enjoy the sun and some fresh orange juice.
