Day trip to Kasbah Du Toubkal, Morocco

From Marrakesh, you will be taken to the Kasbah Du Toubkal, in the High Atlas Mountains. Leaving Marrakesh, you climb gradually into the mountains, stopping en route at a local souq or somewhere to get a feel for mountain life. As you climb the river valley towards Jebel Toubkal, you arrive at the village of Imlil, an important provisioning base for those going on treks into the mountains. Here you leave the vehicle and either walk or ride a mule the remaining few hundred yards up the valley to Kasbah Du Toubkal.

Originally the kasbah of a local tribal ruler, Kasbah du Toubkal has now been restored and converted into a rustic but comfortable hotel. You will have lunch on the rooftop, with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. After lunch you have the option to relax and unwind, perhaps with a visit to the Kasbah's traditional hammam (steam bath), or you can take a short walk / mule ride to one of the nearby villages to join the Berbers in their favourite pastime: drinking mint tea.

In the late afternoon you leave Kasbah Du Toubkal to walk back to Imlil for your transfer back to Marrakesh.
