Winter Mount Toubkal Trek - 4 Days

Winter Toubkal Trek

This is a wonderful winter break to Climb Mt Toubkal in Winter the spectacular Mountain the high Atlas of Morocco in North Africa in Winter conditions. The mountain is only around 40 miles to the south of Marrakech and on a clear day it can be clearly seen from the city and vice versa.

 

The Climb Mt Toubkal in Winter is different in nature to the summer climb in that it will be over snow and ice and will require mountaineering clothing and snow and ice travel techniques. There is time to get accustomed with using crampons (if required) and this climb is an excellent introduction to trekking and living in snow conditions.
