Saving the world one trek at a time
Over the last couple of years, we have made it
our priority to find a solution to the environmental
issues that our industry faces in Nepal and the
other countries we operate in.
We became one of the very first companies to
offer fresh filtered drinking water in Nepal using
water filters on every trip. Customers no longer
need to buy plastic bottles or use chlorine tablets.
This means less plastic and a far more pleasant
experience for our customers.
We have also teamed up with Mossy Earth where
we now plant a tree for every customer that books
with EverTrek. .
We like to remain as accessible and as flexible as
possible having our Adventure Experts on hand to
supply all the information you need for a successful
and worry-free trip.
We offer lifetime deposits, instalment plans, private
transfers & airport pickups/send offs and if you need
to change your trip for an emergency you won’t be
stung with any admin or surprise-fees.
All your food and fantastic accommodation on the
trek is covered by us, so you don’t need to stress over the details. You can feel confident that our quality
assured accommodation is completely taken care of so you can focus on having a ton of fun on your trip.
“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
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.

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.
