jbel-toubkal-trekking

Jbel Toubkal, is the highest mountain in North Africa, standing at 4167 m. Its snowy pyramidal summit is surrounded by several other three and four thousand metre peaks of the High Atlas mountain range. The first recorded ascent was by the French mountaineers Marquis de Segonzac, Vincent Berger and Hubert Dolbeauthe on the 12th June 1923. However it is likely that Berber tribesmen reached the summit in the course of hunting trips long before the first Western ‘explorers’. As the highest peak in North Africa, Toubkel is becoming increasingly popular, attracting more than 500 climbers to its slopes every year.
You will be accompanied on the trek by a professional Moroccan mountain guide,( vacation deals ) with a mule to carry your gear and a muleteer to handle the mule. You will be camping during the trek, and your guide will provide good meals for you round the campfire.
