3 days Mount Toubkal round trek via Aguelzim pass (3650m)
Aguelzim mountain is located above the Azzaden valley and offers stunning views over the Atlas summit. Due to the elevation, the trek is considered one of the hardest, but also one of the most beautiful.
Day 1: Marrakech - Imlil - Azzaden valley - Tamsoult Refuge
After your transfer from Marrakech to Imlil (1,780m), you will set off on a 6 hour trek out of the Imlil Valley and into the Azzaden Valley. Along the way you will pass Tizi n’Mzik at 2,450m, the refuge at Azib n’Tansoult and the Ighouliden waterfalls. Overnight in the Lipeney mountain refuge at 3,000m ( or before at Azib n Tamsoult).
Day 2: Tamsoult Refuge - Aguelzim Pass (3650) - Toubkal Refuge
Today involves a fairly stiff climb out of the Azzaden Valley to the Toubkal refuge over the Aguelzim mountain pass at 3,560 m. Lunch will be taken with spectacular views over the Atlas mountain range. Overnight in the Toubkal refuge (Neltner Hut) where you will likely be sharing a bunk room with other trekkers tackling Toubkal early the next morning.
Day 3: Toubkal Refuge - Toubkal summit - Imlil - Marrakech
Up early for the climb up Toubkal (4,167 m) from where, clouds allowing, you will have wonderful views over the Atlas range and the Sahara desert. T hen a long way back down past the refuge and the well-worn path back to Imlil. This is a fairly long day with 8-9 hours of trekking, involving 900m up then almost 2,500 m back down to Imlil. You will normally be dropped off at around 5.00 pm in Marrakech.

“3 day Toubkal trek”
We had a 3 day trek with Omar as guide and Hamed as muleteer. They were both very friendly, helpful and always professional. Really a tremendous experience. Omar was very good at maintaining a steady and suitable pace. He knew a lot about the area, and was able to share his knowledge in a non-intrusive way. The food was generous and of excellent quality, and Hamed's mule (now named Sally) appeared well looked after. The Berber omelette was delicious! We climbed Toubkal to watch the sunrise. Omar was cheerful and helpful, and had the presence of mind to bring a sleeping bag - a good thing too - the windchill must have been at least 10 degrees below zero!
“Atlas trecking and Toubkal”
Our 4 days in the Atlas mountains were absolutely fantastic. Rachid was helpful and flexible and from begining to end made every effort to ensure we were well looked after. Our guide, Lassan, was a pleasure to spend time with and he made our treck and assent of Toubkal happen with his encouragement and happy leadership. It was much harder work than these four 50 year old blokes were expecting, still alot of snow about so we were wearing crampons for 2 days, but the sense of achievment was breathtaking. Highly recommended.
“5 day loop in the High Atlas”
Reviewed 1 week ago
we organised a 5 day trip in High Atlas through Pathfinders. Rachid was very helpful, well spoken with very good English and very knowledgeable about the area. The Guide and muleteers he arranged for us were nice and food on the trip was great!
Overall was a smooth, well organised and well priced trip!
Note: From November till April this trek requires crampons and ice-axes.
