The main highlight of our Moroccan trip is the 2 day trek to the Toubkal peak where we reached the Refuge Camp at 3,200m! If you are looking for an adventure in Morocco, then climb Toubkal!! And if you're wondering how to climb it safely, then we highly highly recommend contacting Hassan! He was very organised and genuine and will provide you with excellent guides. He organised a free taxi to pick us up from our accommodation to Imlil where you start your journey. It took us 6 hours to reach the Refuge camp which was 3,200 metres up where we stayed for the night and planned to climb the peak at 4am! Unfortunately we did not manage to climb all the way to the peak as my girlfriend had altitude sickness during the night and couldn't sleep but our guide Mohamed made the right decision for us not to continue as the climb to the peak during the time was very difficult due to the heavy snow and will be dangerous for my girlfriend. Mohamed kept a high spirit and we managed to climb down safely. We are still very happy and very keen in coming back during summer to finish our climb!!!
Tips: If you are climbing during winter, bring loads of thermal layer and extra socks as the base camp is extremely cold!!! Also bring proper hiking boots as the terrain is very difficult. I recommend acclimatising to a higher altitude before climbing as this is the highest peak in North Africa! Hassan will provide you a couple of water bottles to bring so you don't need to bring some. Overall, we are very happy to find Trek in Atlas company!
