Hike Mount Toubkal, the High Atlas Mountains’ highest point


The High Atlas massif is a must-see in Morocco as its mountain range is home to beautiful landscapes and ancient Berber villages. Its highest point, Mount Toubkal, is also the highest peak in North Africa, a bonus for hiking aficionados. Ambitious hikers can embark on a five-day trek to the summit through green oases and snow-covered areas.

Be sure to share a meal with the locals or sip on mint tea to revive your strength in the villages along the way, such as Imlil and Tizi Oussem. If you're a beginner, we recommend a day walk on Mount Toubkal’s slopes. Uncover the terraced crops that enhance the mountain’s inclines for spectacular views.

Set against the panorama of the High Atlas’ other mountain passes, the massif is a magnificent sight from both up close and afar. Why not go one step further and admire the vista on horseback? Our local agencies organize excursions with guides who can help you discover the region at a leisurely pace.
