Toubkal - Highest peak Atlas and Morocco

Toubkal - Highest peak Atlas and Morocco

4,167 m / 13,761 ft make this summit of the Jbel Toubkal or Tubkal, not only the highest point of the Atlas Mountains and Morocco but also one of the most famous four-thousanders of the world. Despite its location in North Africa, its summit is usually covered with snow from around December to June. Moreover, year after year the number of backcountry skiing lovers increases as they find its slopes the ideal environment for practicing their favorite sport.

The Jbel Toubkal is located in a mountain range, the Atlas mountains or simply the Atlas, within the National Park that bears the same name.

The usual starting point for its conquest is Imlil, a village located at an altitude of about 1,750 m / 5,740 ft, where you find hotels, restaurants, grocery stores and other shops.

From there to either one of the two existing shelters, located at 3,200 m / 10,500 ft above sea level, will take about five hours. It is advisable to spend the night in them. This intermediate step is ideal to acclimatise to the altitude. The next day, with renewed strength, the roof of the Atlas and Morocco awaits you after about 4 hours of trekking.

It is a relatively easy climb without technical difficulties, although with snow it may be necessary to use crampons and ice axes.

What else is there
About 65 km / 40 mi away awaits the imperial city of Marrakech with its “Thousand and one nights” charm. There you can not miss a visit to the famous Djemaa el Fna square, with its continuous bustle of merchants, snake charmers, fortune tellers, musicians and dancers. Enjoy a classic Moroccan mint tea in one of the adjoining terraces and admire the spectacle from above. You will rapidly understand why it was declared part of the intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO. Then have fun practicing the art of haggling in the colorful souk, inmortalise yourself by the minaret of the Koutoubia mosque, symbol of the country, do not miss the El Badi Palace, immerse yourself in the local culture visiting the Ben Youssef Madrasa, visit the Menara Garden and the Saadian tombs. Take the opportunity to ride a camel, have a ride in a carriage, relax in a Hammam and pay a tribute, or more, to the typical dishes of the Moroccan cuisine tasting Tagines and Couscous.

Notes
Although it is a relatively easy ascent, it is advisable to undertake this adventure accompanied by a professional guide. Most mountaineers recommend to conquer this MOSTPOINT during the months of May and June.
