Trekking in the Atlas Mountains

Toubkal, Mgoun Massif and Jebel Sahro

This guidebook describes 32 day treks around Toubkal and 2 multi-day circuit routes in the Mgoun Massif, the Sahro range and Jebel Sirwa. The Atlas Mountains are wild and rough, ideal for experienced trekkers comfortable with scrambling, and (until June) the use of crampons and ice-axes. Mountaineering skills are necessary in higher regions.

Best time is probably late Spring, although for the very tough (who don't mind it hot) other times of the year are possible. Ramadan will affect surplies and support.
Marrakech is the main acess to the high mountains to Toubkal, Mgoun and Jebel Sahro regions.
Tough and wild trekking, scrambling. Also high (Toubkal is 4167m). Plenty of support in the main areas but the skills of independent travel in high mountains are essential in quieter regions.
Must See
Big mountains, deep gorges, Berber peoples and culture.

The Atlas Mountains of Morocco offer an incredible variety of scenery, climate and terrain, for both the walker and mountaineer. The range provides opportunities for walking and scrambling throughout the year, making it a particularly desirable destination for the trekking enthusiast. This guidebook is primarily aimed at the walker and scrambler and whatever your age or level of fitness, the Atlas Mountains are a rewarding and exciting destination.

The Toubkal region, which contains the highest and most spectacular peaks, is covered in this guidebook, along with detailed descriptions for circuits in the less well known but equally impressive Mgoun massif area, Jebel Sahro range and Jebel Sirwa. The highest point lies in the Toubkal region at 4167m high.

Each route is categorized as ‘easy’, ‘moderate’ or ‘strenuous’. This refers solely to the amount of effort expended. However, because of the rocky terrain of the Atlas Mountains, some indication of the degree of seriousness is also given, where appropriate. All route descriptions, and corresponding timings, relate to summer conditions. In winter and spring, snow cover will make any of the scree routes much quicker and easier, but may block passes and prevent access by mule.
