What to do in Toubkal ?
A trek to the top of Toubkal (4167 m) offers a beautiful overview of the Moroccan mountains: alpine relief, stone villages, traditional way of life… With the objective of climbing the djebel Toubkal, nicknamed “the mountain of mountains” by the Berbers. Sporting trek to discover, from the highest point of Morocco, the whole Atlas.
The ascent of the “4000” of Toubkal: if the mountain Toubkal dominates the eponymous massif, it has for neighbors great summits accessible by crossing valleys and less known passes, such as Adrar n’Derm (4001 m), Ouanoukrim (4088 m) or Bouguinoussen (4025 m).
