Mount Toubkal Trek
The High Atlas Mountains run south-west through Morocco. They are remote, barren and absolutely stunning. This challenge sees you climb their highest peak – and the highest in North Africa: Mount Toubkal, at 4167 m.
The ascent is tough, steep and rocky, and the effects of being at altitude add to the challenge. However, the magnificent views from the summit – reaching across to the Sahara Desert – and the massive sense of achievement will more than compensate for your efforts.
You will also get to witness the local way of life as you pass through colourful villages, where Berbers farm in the river valleys and herd goats and sheep in the mountains. The ancient city of Marrakech, with its labyrinthine streets and intriguing souks, provides the perfect contrast.
