Trek Grade: Moderate to Strenuous

Day 1: Tassa Ouirgane - Tiziane

Journey to Tassa Ouirgane (1,500m) in the Ouirgane Valley, where we begin our trek to Tiziane (1,800m). Our route takes us through the juniper and redwood forests of the Tassa National Park and along the beautiful red-soiled Azzadene Valley. As we pass out from the forests there are stunning views of the surrounding mountains and we encounter small isolated hamlets and villages.

Day 2: Tiziane - Azib Assoul

Our path takes us out of the Azzadene Valley and up to the pass of Tizi ‘n Touati, from where there is a majestic panorama of the High Atlas range. We then descend through a forest of oaks and past villages with stonewalled sheep pens. Overnight camping near Tizgui at Azib Assoul (2,300m).

Day 3: Azib Assoul - Tizi Oussem

We cross the Tizi ‘n Tagoudalte pass (2,700m) from where we have views of the western High Atlas mountain range. We then have a long descent through alpine areas overgrown with wildflowers and herbs, and follow a river past terraced fields and groves of walnut trees, to the village of Tizi Oussem (1,900m). Free afternoon to relax or explore the village. Overnight in a gite.

Day 4: Tizi Oussem - Aremd

Trek to a small waterfall at Azib Tamsoulte and return to cross the Tizi ‘n Mzik pass (2,500m). We join the main Toubkal valley at Aremd (1,900m), where we spend the night in a village gite.

Day 5: Aremd - Sidi Chamarouch - Toubkal Refuge

Today we gradually ascend the Toubkal valley, via the pilgrimage hamlet of Sidi Chamarouch, to the Toubkal Refuge (3,200m). We camp at the foot of Mt Toubkal.

Day 6: Toubkal Refuge - Mt Toubkal Summit - Toubkal Refuge

An early start for the challenging trek to the summit of Mt Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa at 4,167m. We return to our base camp near the refuge for the night.
