Toubkal (4,167m) 4 Four Thousand – Morocco
El Mount Toubkal at 4,167 meters, it is the highest peak in North Africa. It is located in the Toubkal National Park, in Morocco, which was founded during the French protectorate in 1942. Its extension is 100,000 ha, and it is located in the Western High Atlas, between the N'Fiss and Ourika valleys.
On the day of arrival, we will enjoy the thousand-year-old city of Marrakesh, of its wonderful culture, gastronomy, markets, ...
The Toubkal, is a mountainous massif of volcanic origin. Its embedded valleys and its berber culture, its adobe buildings, terraced crops, rock carvings, abundant flora and fauna and the friendly welcome of its people, make this trekking essential.
Thistrekking is spectacular and of a high level, for demanding mountaineers. It's about a circular trekking in which nothing less than four summits that exceed 4,000 meters high. As a highlight we will have the prize of the ascent to the highest in Morocco and the entire High Atlas, the Toubkal with its 4,167m, an experience that should not be missing in your backpack. A unique opportunity to get to know these spectacular mountains and a fascinating and different culture, which we are lucky to have so close.
