After 2 hours walking, you will have lunch in the tiny settlement of Chamharouch, famous for its big white rock and its legends about the King of Jinns.
After Chamharouch, the path leads over the stream and runs steeply uphill to the right side of the Isougouane valley, which leads to two stone-built refuge “Les mouflons” at the foot of Mount Toubkal (3,200 m/10,522 ft).

Day 3: Hiking to Toubkal
Pass By: Toubkal National parck, Imlil, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
You will get up at 3am to have an energizing breakfast and start the hiking. From the hide, a path crosses the stream, climbs a steep scree slope to the east and enters a valley , then climbs another steep slope to reach a col (Tizi’n’Toubkal at 3,940m).
At the col, the route turns left (northwards) to the summit ridge of Jbel Toubkal. The 4,167m summit is crowned with a curious pyramidal metal frame.
You will enjoy a breathtaking view of most of the Atlas Mountains bathed by the first lights on the sunrise. Some will sing and shout for joy while others will cry but the time of the descent has already come.
After 6 hours hiking, you will be back to the refuge to have a break and enjoy your feat.
You will continue to Chamharouch to have lunch. Some of you, too exhausted to keep walking will go back in time and experiment mule riding, a funny way to end this fulfilling journey.
Your driver will be waiting for you in Imlil to take you back to Marrakesh.
No accommodation included on this day.
