Exhilarating one-week trek to the summit of North Africa's highest mountain
Mt Toubkal, known locally as Jebel Toubkal, stands 4167m above sea level and commands superb views of the High Atlas Mountains. Our trek passes through impressive landscapes on well-defined paths and is, surprisingly, not too strenuous. As we climb higher, the paths do become steeper and rugged in places, but the gain in altitude awards dramatic views; to Marrakech, the Anti-Atlas mountains and row after row of sharp granite peaks. This rewarding trek passes through remote villages and terraced fields offering us an insight to the life of the hardy and friendly Berber people. We finish the week with some free time in the colourful Imperial City of Marrakech, where you and your students can go in for some serious bargaining for souvenirs and enjoy the entertainment of snake charmers, water-sellers and acrobats in Djemaa el Fna.
