Toubkal is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains and in North Africa.
Located 63 km south of the city of Marrakesh in Toubkal National Park.
Trekkers usually approach the mountain from the road-end village of Imlil.
The normal route leads to two stone-built refuges (old Neltner Refuge and new Refuge du Toubkal) that are often used as base camp at 3,207 m (10,522 ft). From that point, the route climbs to the summit ridge of Jbel Toubkal.
The 4,167m summit is crowned with a curious pyramidal metal frame and views take in most of the Atlas and Anti-Atlas Mountains.
It's possible to climb the mountain in two days - first day up to the refuge (around 7 hours without mules), second day to the summit (around 5 hours) and back to Imlil (up to 5 hours).
