Magnificent Mount Toubkal

Standing at an intimidating height of 4 167 meters, Toubkal is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountain range. It is located just outside of Marrakech, in the breathtaking Toubkal National Park. No-one is exactly sure when the first ascent of this peak took place, as the first date documented is 12 June 1923. Hubert Dolbeau, the Marquis de Segonzac and Vincent Berger were the first Europeans to climb Toubkal, but it is possible that the mountain had been ascended before them by Berber tribesmen while on hunting expeditions, but was never documented. Today it is a popular mountain climbing destination, and mountaineers from all over the world come to Morocco to take on this magnificent peak.
