In support of Farm Africa: Take on Toubkal
Back to events
18 October 2012 - 22 October 2012
Event, Mt Toubkal, Marrakesh
Mt Toubkal (4167m) is the highest mountain in North Africa. The
trek to the summit is challenging but non technical and does not
require any mountaineering experience. We drive to Imlil a remote
High Atlas village to begin. Following scree paths, we overnight
near Neltner Refuge before attempting our ascent the next day. On
a clear day the panoramic views from the summit are fantastic.
Farm Africa is looking for teams of 4 people to take on this challenge.
Joining other teams in support of Farm Africa, you will complete the
challenge over five days.
Each group must also commit to a
fundraising target of £6,000.
The Farm Africa fundraising team will
be on hand to help you hit that target, and have many ideas and
resources to help you out.
Members of the Farm Africa fundraising team will also be joining
you on the trek.
