Toubkal High Atlas

The Toubkal region started to become well known to trekkers back in the 1970s. The landscapes are spectacular and for walkers there are plenty of bivouac and accommodation opportunities. For the less energetic, many interesting parts of the region can be visited as part of an organized 4WD excursion from Marrakech. Popular are trips up onto the Plateau du Kik and in the Ourika Valley. The problem is that certain treks, including the ascent of Toubkal (referred to by one French climber as being a 'boulevard-type' hike), are almost too popular in the summer season. Nevertheless, there are plenty of alternative routes.
