Toubkal is the highest peak , at 4,167 metres, in the Atlas Mountains and North Africa.
Situated in the Toubkal National Park, Jebel Toubkal is one of the most popular mountain climbs in Morocco. It requires a good level of fitness as the ascent requires a 900 m hike from the refuge and whilst not a technical climb , there will be at times a need to scramble over rocks. The reward at the summit however, panoramic views across the Atlas to the Sahara and Marrakech makes it extremely worthwhile. Winter climbs are especially rewarding .
Grade – moderate to strenuous
