This is a more demanding Day Excursion, requiring an early start from Marrakech Ã¢ÂÂ or even better spending the night before in Imlil or Aremd. It is a long day but rewarding and takes you as far as the Toubkal Refuge. From Imlil at 1740m to the Toubkal Refuge at 3207m Ã¢ÂÂ a climb of 2500m Ã¢ÂÂ requires reasonable fitness, but is not technically difficult. The day starts from Imlil (if you have stayed the night there) and is an uphill climb first to Sidi Chamarouch, a small shrine frequented by pilgrims, where weÃ¢ÂÂll have a short stop. We then continue up to the Toubkal Refuge, with the summit of Toubkal above us. where weÃ¢ÂÂll have our picnic lunch before returning back down to Imlil for transfer back to Marrakech in the early evening.
