ITINERARY
DAY 1: MARRAKECH - DJBEL TOUKBAL 
►After breakfast at your hotel, depart Marrakech by 4x4 and head south toward Imlil. Imlil is a small, peacefulvillage in the HighAtlasMountains of Morocco. Due to its unique position this quaint town has become the center of mountaintourism. At 1740 meters above sea level, Imlil sits just below Djebel Toukbal the highest peak in Northern Africa
►As your driver travels towards Imlil, just 1 ½ hours outside the “red city” of Marrakech, the road narrows considerably after the turn-off from the market town of Asni, winding for 18 km up into the village. Once in Imlil, travel is onfoot or by mule. (If it’s Saturday remind your host to stop at the Saturdaysouk in Asni and stock up on supplies prior to heading to the mountains- if you’re planning an extended stay).
►Your driver will take you on a small tour of the village which in fertile in spring and summer with waterfalls surrounded by greenery. Explore the small shops selling Berber silverjewelry and local Moroccan goods that can be found along the tarmac road just before the dead end that leads up to Toukbal.
►Next visit the other side of Imlil and travel through a small windy road and then a short trek downhill by foot that leads to an auberge owned by a Swiss woman. Enjoy afternoon tea on the terrace or inside this tiny, charming interior space- that boasts breathtaking views of Toukbal and the surrounding old village Kasbahs
►Enjoy lunch Kasbah Toukbal’s terrace with its magnificentviews ofToukbal, just a 10 minute short walk past the tarmac road.
►After lunch head back down to the town center of Imlil and return to Marrakesh.
DJBEL TOUKBAL & EXTENDED HIGH ATLAS TOUR:
►Imlil as a village is a relatively new creation; it was created to cater for the amount of tourists pouring through en route toToubkal. The original communities still exist in the valleys around: Tamatert; Ait Souka; Tagadirt; Acheim; Taourirt n'Ait Mizane; Mzikene and Arhrene. Before the advent of mountain tourism the Imlil area was well known for its walnuts, apples and cherry production.
►If you interested in trekking to MountToukbal and would like to summit to the top, then there’s an option to extend your stay or include the trek as part of your itinerary. Just inform your driver or Travel Exploration and we will be sure to hire a qualified localmountainguide, as well as mules and mule handlers, for transport of equipment and food supplies. 
►It is possible to climb Mount Toubkal in two days - first day up to the refuge (around seven hours without mules), second day to the summit (around five hours) and back to Imlil (up to five hours). 
►In summer the mountains can be very dry, but are sometimes subjected to storms - often in August. Although the temperature should keep above zero during the day, freezing conditions are possible over 3,500m. In winter the mountains are covered in snow and ice, and can be prone to avalanches. Skiing is possible as the snow can lie to considerable depth and covers many rockyslopes.
►The standard route commences with an easy walk to the village of Aroumd. Past Aroumd a floodplain is crossed from where the route follows the left slope of the valley southwards. The valley bends to the east to the tiny settlement of Sidi Chamharouch, which has grown around a Muslimshrine. At Sidi Chamharouch a path leads over the stream and steeply uphill to the right side of the Isougouane valley, which leads to two stone-built refuges (old Neltner Refuge and new Refuge du Toubkal, 3,207m).
►From that point a path crosses the stream, climbs a steep scree slope to the east and enters a valley (corrie), then climbs another steep slope to reach a col (Tizi'n'Toubkal at 3,940m). At the col the route turns left (northwards) to the summit ridge of Jebel Toubkal. The 4,167m summit is crowned with a curious pyramidal metal frame and views take in most of the Atlas and Anti-Atlas Mountains.
►Also known as Jbel Toubkal, this impressive massif is a meccafortrekkers who climb to the summit for magnificent views of the Atlas range, and the satisfaction of conquering one of Africa's most famousmountains. It is the central attraction of Morocco's Mount Toubkal National Park. Anascent of Mount Toubkal is one of Morocco's most popular attractions, achieved in as little as two days, but normally included as a highlight of a longer trekintheHigh Atlas, of up to 10days or more.
