In 2018, Ramadan will take place from 15 May to 14 June. This is the holiest month of the year for Muslims around the world. Many festivals are marked as Islamic Holidays, which may cause some disturbance to your travels around this time. Some regular services may not be available or open during the daytime, such as restaurants or coffee bars. Please consider your travel arrangements carefully.
This is a trekking trip, so the physical demands are higher here than for other trips. In order to reach the summit of Mount Toubkal, you need to be reasonably fit and healthy. Previous mountain climbing or walking experience will help you during this trip.
The summit of Mt. Toubkal is 4,167 metres (13,671 feet) above sea level. However unlikely, at this height you may experience symptoms of altitude sickness. Some people aren’t affected at all, but if you are, be sure to drink plenty of water and take it easy. Please see the ‘Health’ section of the trip notes for more information about altitude sickness.
On days 2-5 of the trip you'll be staying in typical Moroccan mountain accommodation, which may include sharing rooms and basic facilities. This is a great way to experience the Berber culture of the High Atlas Mountains.
