  • 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).
