    “Has to be one of the best run and professional companies I have come across.”

    This trip was exceptional from start to finish. Has to be one of the best run and professional companies I have come across. Before we even started we were sent

    weekly emails and lots of correspondence to get us excited for the trip. Any questions and worries were answered straight away - some even by video replies!! The actual

    Everest base camp trip itself was one of the best experiences of my life, however very

    tough! Everything from start to finish was run perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for more from Andy, Dave and the Sherpas they provided! A 5 star service all round!

    “The guides were truly amazing, professional and were always on-hand to look after us.”

    Thanks guys for the experience of a lifetime. What can I say about EverTrek! Simply brilliant.

    From the moment we spoke with Andy and signed up it was all taken care of. The guides were

    truly amazing, professional and were always on-hand to look after us. Listen, this is a tough

    challenge but it’s well within the reach of most of you out there considering the possibility. I’ve

    kept myself pretty fit all my life (63 years young) but trying to keep up with my sons was, at times, pushing my limits. The scenery is so beautiful it becomes an emotional challenge at times.

    Our guides, Rahul and Krishna were meticulous in making sure we were looked after every step

    of the way and needless to say we have become friends for life. I cannot recommend EverTrek

    highly enough. Don’t think about this for too long - just do it. They’ll get there and you’ll never

    forget the experience. So,as soon as I have some pics ready

    I’ll upload and share but please do not hesitate to contact me while I’m still flying through

    thin air!!! Thanks again Andy and EverTrek.

    Mt Toubkal - Roof of the North Weekender Destination:

    In a nutshell:

    Trip duration: 4 days

    Accommodation: 2 nights camping/1 night hotel/Riad

    Tour detail: 3 days trekking

    Max altitude: 4167m (13,671ft)

    Mt Toubkal has grown in popularity over the last 10 years but it’s still something of a hidden jewel in high altitude trekking at it lies so close to Europe.

    Although Mt Toubkal sits above 4000m, you can ascend

    quickly to the summit as long as you get back down once it’s completed. That’s why this quick 4 day ascent is possible maximising your weekend.

    You start your trek in the Imlil valley and camp under the

    stars in the high Atlas Mountains as we get closer to the

    historic Toubkal peak.

    There is nothing quite like watching the sunrise as you reach the summit of Mt Toubkal. The views are immense. It’s a

    challenging and tough climb but the views are worth it. You

    will have reached the roof of North Africa.

    “Toubkal is super accessible being

    so close to Europe. One of the best

    places to get your first test of high altitude ifg you are thinking of going

    higher to places like Everest Base

    Camp or Kilimanjaro.

    The itinerary we have created gives

    you ta chance to maximise your

    weekend. Although you never want

    to rush a 4000m peak, the itinerary

    is designed to summit and come

    down enough that altitude won’t

    really effect you.

    What to expect on the trek

    Food & Accommodation

    When you think of a camping trip i’m sure tinned oranges and dried packet rations spring to mind.

    However, this is Morocco and the food is pretty damn good for where you are. You do have to

    remember where you are, the remote Atlast mountains and most of the ingredients used are locally


    All cooking equipment is taken with us onto the trek and then back out again. These are carried by our awesome team of provided at the camps or refuges on the trek. Meals are prepared by our local

    cook for the entire trip and consist of breakfast, lunch and dinner. A mix of local dishes keeping us

    fueled for the summit climb.

    Accommodation on the treks are in either tents or refuges at certain locations along the trails. All

    camping gear is carried by our mules/porters but you should bring along a decent sleeping bag and

    sleeping bag liner. Ohh and don’t forget your ear plugs.
