Toubkal Expedition 6 Days in Winter

Toubkal is a mountain peak in south western Morocco, located in the Toubkal National Park. At 4,167 meters, it is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains and in Northern Africa. Our Toubkal guided trip is usually 6 days but can be tailored to suit your needs. Our trip is very different to most as we will give you the chance to climb four 4000 meter summits. This 6 day guided trip is suitable for anyone with some basic hill walking experience. This is more than just a Toubkal trip, we will aim to get you to the summit of four 4000 meters peaks. The peaks we will try and climb are Toubkal 4167m, Toubkal West 4030m, Ras 4083m and Timezguida 4089m taking the total of peaks to four. The Toubkal national park is stunning and when visited in winter it is quieter than in the summer months giving a much more unique experience. The peaks here are a perfect introduction to higher mountain summits being just over 4000 meters in height. Crampons and ice axes will be carried and full training will be given on there use. If you haven't got your own, these can be hired in Imlil. Porters will carry your heavy bags to the hut from Imlil making your ascent that much easier and more enjoyable. This is all covered in the cost of the trip.
