For pure mountain air that cuts through the heat and leaves you giddy, don’t miss the highest mountain in North Africa: snowcapped Jebel Toubkal (4167m), situated in the heart of the Toubkal National Park. Mountain trails criss-crossing Jebel Toubkal start from Imlil, which is located at the end of the Mizane Valley. On the way to Imlil, you could make a pit stop 47km south of Marrakesh at Asni for roadside tajines and the Saturday souq.
Drinking water directly from a tap in Morocco isn't a good idea. However, the Moroccan authorities are concerned about the pollution caused by plastic from bottled water, and many hotels have filtered water for guests which is considered safe to drink.
Toubkal hiking adventures are best during the spring months. During this season, surrounding trees are in full bloom and the weather temperature is perfect for hiking. One of the most unfavorable times to go trekking Morocco is during the summer.
