Description

“4×4000” is an easy mountaineering expedition to the mountains of High Atlas. The trip allows you to explore the high mountains in a relatively accessible way. All ascents begin from one mountain refuge. There are as many as 8 peaks above 4000m in the Jabaal Tubkala massif. During this trip we will have the opportunity to climb 4 of them. This mountaineering expedition may be the first level of your new adventure: climbing 4000 meters peaks. It is also a great chance to prepare yourself for more serious mountaineering challenges in the Alps.

Day 7. A day off in Marrakech or a spare day to finish the mountaineering plan in case of the delay, e.g. due to weather conditions or slower acclimatization of the group. If we spend the day in Marrakech, an optional trip to Essaouira is possible. Essaouira is the fortress-city on the Atlantic Ocean, one of the famous “blue cities”. It has an old medina situated on a steep cliff with spectacular views, an old commercial port and sandy beaches as well. The good idea is to stop for lunch in the famous “grillades” and taste fresh fish and seafood. In the evening return to Marrakech. Overnight stay at a hotel.

Day 8. After breakfast at the hotel, transfer to Marrakech airport. Departure to homes.
