  Berber Villages And Toubkal Trek 5 days

Berber Villages And Toubkal Trek 5 days trek to Mt. Toubkal Summit, and some sightseeing and exploration in Marrakesh and Casablanca for an experience not to be missed.

The high Atlas Mountains near Marrakesh offer some of the finest trekking in the world. Mt. Toubkal, North Africa’s highest mountain, is a stunning trek, where we will hike through a variety of landscapes from lush, green valleys to cold, barren rock. The route takes us through colorful Berber Villages, over mountain passes and slowly ascending to our summit at 4,167m, at the top of Mount Toubkal.

Although demanding, the Moroccan Atlas mountains trek does not require any technical mountaineering knowledge and is thus suitable for fit outdoor hikers/walkers. However, climbing Toubkal is not a trek for the first-time hiker either, as it can prove challenging. It is important to start getting regular exercise at home to get in shape for the trek in Moroccan atlas mountains.
