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.
