Mount Toubkal Trek (4167m) can be climbed in two days (rather than the six needed for Kilimanjaro) â?? Day One is a five hour trek from Ilmil at 1800m, up gradually steepening, scree ridden terrain stopping to acclimatise at 3200m (above 3000m the effects of altitude are noticeable â?? heart beating faster, short of breath, legs like lead weights!) at the Neltner/Toubkal Refuge with hot showers (an unexpected luxury!).
Here, after a feast of pasta carbs we camped over night, getting up at 4.30am to begin the final ascent on Day Two.
Nowhere near as high as Mount Kilimanjaro, but just as energy sapping and very hot (35 degrees) and dusty, every step of the 4-hour ascent was an effort as the altitude starves you of the oxygen needed to make your limbs work.
We finally arrived at the summit at 9.30am with spectacular (if hazy) views across to the Sahara in the south and Marrakech to the north.
