What should I pack to hike up Mount Toubkal?
To make the most of your Mount Toubkal trek, make sure you're well prepared. The weather can change in an instant up in the mountains so pack layers of moisture-wicking clothing that you can easily add or remove depending on the conditions.
Temperatures tend to drop dramatically at night, so a warm fleece, a good-quality down jacket and a wind and waterproof shell jacket are essential. We recommend bringing some breathable walking trousers rather than jeans, and on summit day, you'll also need a warm hat, scarf, waterproof/windproof gloves and a head torch for the pre-sunrise trek.
For your feet, we suggest walking boots with ankle support paired with liner socks under a pair of reasonably thick loop stitch socks. Good-quality sunglasses or ski goggles will protect your eyes from glare at high altitudes and make sure you use a high factor sunscreen.
