The Mountain Climb
Jebel Toubkal is the largest mountain in the north African Atlas
range. It is 4137m high (Snowdon is about 1075m high) and will take
a full day of walking to reach the top from Imlil.
We plan to drive to Imlil (see route) and
say overnight there. We will arrange for a guide at the village,
which lies at 1740m high.
The Route up:
The route can be split into two main sections:
The first section walking to the Toubkal Mountain refuge should
take around 5-6hours.
The second, more steep climb, will take up to another 3 hours.
The jouney down should be a lot quicker leading us to believe that
the whole Summit day can be carried out in around 12 hours.
