Marrakesh 40000, Marrakesh
Dates: Monday 29th May to Friday 2nd June 2017
Our 5 day expedition starts from Marrakech airport where you will be whisked off to the remote Berber village of Imlil situated at 1740m. After spending the first night in Imlil, we then begin the trek past the village of Aremd and begin the ascent to the Sidi Chamharouch mosque (2350m); renowned for its mystical healing powers, thousands of Moroccans each year make the pilgrimage looking for spiritual and physical healing. After a short break, we continue onto the Mouflon's hut – which is our base for the next two nights.
Situated at 3205m you may experience the effects of altitude, but there will be ample time to rest and enjoy an evening meal before our attempt to summit Toubkal the next morning.
After breakfast, we venture out onto eastern slopes of the Toubkal massif passing between the summits of Tete d’Ouanoums (3970m) and Gui Imlil (3560m).
Eventually ascending the south west ridge and onto the summit of Toubkal at 4167m. After photos at the ‘pyramid’ we return to the Mouflon's hut for our evening meal and relaxation.
The next morning we trek back to Imlil before meeting our onward transport to Marrakech and our host Riad. That evening we eat out in the famous Jemaa el Fna square and experience the sights and sounds that Marrakech has to offer.
The next day, time is available to enjoy the souks and barter for gifts or enjoy a relaxing massage at the Riad before flying home.
