I really can't recommend this experience highly enough; take your hiking boots and be prepared for some hard work but if you get to the top of the Toubkal you'll have an unforgettable holiday story to tell when you get home!
Our guide Mohammed was brilliant, and remained patiently supportive when the going got a little tough. Thanks to his advice and expertise, we made the trek to the summit in the early hours of the morning on day two of the trek, reaching the peak in time for sunrise. Climbing by torchlight was quite an experience, but bearing the cold was worth it for the sight of the sun rising over the mountains (not to mention a welcome relief from climbing in the heat of the day).
The food provided on the trek was plentiful and delicious - far better than most of the meals we had in Marrakech. You certainly won't go hungry, but bring a few dirham so you can buy drinks along the way. There's freshly squeezed orange juice at a few of the stopping points and if you're walking in the heat of the day you'll need it. Take plenty of water too.
Brace yourself for a long day on day two, regardless of when you start. You've got to make it to the summit, then back down and back to the village where it all starts.
A truly memorable experience. Go prepared! You won't regret it.
