OUIRGANE TO TOUBKAL SUMMIT TREK
Trek in Organ Valley and climb Toubkal Summit in 4 days
Trekking from Ouirgane Valley to Toubkal summit is perfect for relatively small tracks to upgrade your hiking style. The scenery is just beautiful and a perfect spot to unstress.
If you stretch your eyes further south from the highest peak of the High Atlas Mountain –Toubkal- you can lie them on the Sahara Desert, thousands of Kilometers away. Or if you decide to take your Ouirgane to Toubakl trek during winter time, then embrace yourself to tell stories about when you trekked on snow in subtropical Africa! Or even better, trek through Bereber villages and meet the super friendly indigenous people of Morocco- The Berbers.
Overnight at a shelter in the Berber village of Tizian region.
After a refreshing breakfast by our cook, our destination for the day will be the astounding Azzedin Valley. The valley will reward us with stunning views of lice-white mountains - or not yet snow clocked (depending on the time of the year) - loomed over us, through which streams run joyfully, as well as walnut groves and stunning views of Toubkal summit.Overnight in a village or at the valley ( At a guest house )
For this day, a pretty stiff climb is awaiting for us. We shall climb ourselves out of the valley passing by the magical waterfall of Ighouliden and across the Aguelzim Mountain pass at 3560m. The trek will land us at the Toubkal Refuge where we will spend our night. The Refuge is pretty basic, meaning that you will probably have to share a room with other Mountaineers, however, the Refuge has a hot running water for showers and a lounge area with a fireplace where you can chill.Take a good night rest and prepare to face the Toubkal summit the next morning.
We will aim for an early morning to climb Toubkal (4167m), as we want to avoid the heated morning sun. The sight from the summit is an impressive sight, the Majestic Mountain laying it shadow over the villages, and the peak definitely kept its promise of an epic view.We will retrace our steps back to refuge and eventually to Imlil where your transportation back to Marrakech will be waiting for you. Today will feel like a long day as we will have trekked for 8-9 hours, including a 900m upwards climbing added to another 2500m down to Imlil.
