A good and enjoyable personal experience on climbing Mt Toubkal. However on the trip I was let down by the logistics which were not appropriate and fit for the purpose. We experienced just a couple of bad and worst weather on day 3 and 5 with strong winds and heavy rain which was enough to tested the tents. On these occasions I discovered the fragility of the tents(mine in particular) and the fact that they couldn't resist to more than a couple of bad days.Furthermore the tents weren't anchor properly and because of that the strong wind just blew one of the tent during the night3 and on few occasions the mess tent which was used to have our meals. Anyone with a bit of a knowledge about mountains knows how important is to have a good and safe tent to spend the nights on without worries that will blow away in any moment or that the water will come in.
The climb itself wasn't as difficult as I was thinking and before the day of the climbing Toubkal Summit I could test myself on an optional walk up to 3700m. Nobody from the group experienced any signs of AMS(acute mountain sickness) but few vomited and had diarrhoea when we were at the base camp.
The hotel room from 1st and last day was comfortable, with AC and en-suite. The night spent on the gite was basic but after few days spent on tents looks heavenly.
The food was good all the way and if you are not very fussy about food you will enjoy it. However some snacks or energy bars are required to have them especially because the time between meals it is quite long and on the walks you will need some extra....
Water can be purchase every day of the trip, even up the mountain. For each 1.5l of water you will spend 0.30-0.45p and you will need around 3-4bottle daily, more if you intend to use it for wash too.Plenty rivers but nobody could tell how safe their are for tourists( as I was told by a local )
Money matter.Best way is to change at the airport, however plenty banks are in Marrakesh.On the trip everything has a price and mostly can be negotiate.Medina it is a big labyrinth so don't go by yourself and most important do not listen nor pay the local for directions when you are in Medina, otherwise you will spend many hours inside with no possibility to go out and some money too.
