Alzheimer's Society, Mount Toubkal Trek 2021

10th - 14th June 2021

Trek to the summit of North Africa’s highest peak

In and around the foothills of  Toubkal are numerous villages that have remained largely unaffected by the changes that have taken place in Morocco’s lowland country and cities in the past few decades. With their traditional architecture intact, these villages cling to the side of mountains, seemingly carved into the rock in layers of terraces that appear to defy gravity. It is through this glorious unchanged panorama that we trek on our way to the summit of Toubkal, or as it is locally known Adrar n’dem – Mountain of Mountains.

The first European ascent of Toubkal was made in 1923, until which time the High Atlas had been hardly penetrated by western climbers – they were largely unmapped and the indigenous Berber people violently repelled all attempts to open up ‘their’ mountains. Luckily your reception will be somewhat more peaceful and welcoming!
