Toubkal Refuge day trip

This is a more demanding Day Excursion, requiring an early start from Marrakech – or even better spending the night before in Imlil or MAZIK “Toubkal Refuge day trip”

It is a long day but rewarding and takes you as far as the Toubkal Refuge. From Imlil at 1740m to the Toubkal Refuge  at 3207m – and toubkal at 4067m climb of 2500m – requires reasonable fitness, but is not technically difficult.
The day starts in Imlil (or Aremd if you have stayed the night there) and is an uphill climb first to Sidi Chamarouch, a shrine frequented by pilgrims, where we have a stop. We then continue up to the Toubkal Refuge, with the summit of Toubkal above us. Here we have our picnic lunch before returning back down to Imlil for transfer back to Marrakech in the early evening.
An alternative, if you have the time, is a 2 day trek which includes the summit of Toubkal.
