    Why ?

    Jbel Toubkal, the highest point in North Africa with its 4167m is easy to reach from the UTAT playground. It is a great opportunity to achieve this climb of more than 4000m, accessible in «hiking» mode!

    Thus, we offer you to complete your stay UTAT by this climb to contribute to your acclimatization to the high altitude of the High Atlas before the race, or simply to add a new peak of + 4000 m in your list of Mountain races.

    Acclimatization to Altitude, Why?

    The UTAT is characterized By high altitude courses (average of 2 400m).Starting from 2,620m followed by 6 passes over 3000m, including a passage at 3690m, is one of the highest trials! *»

    However, it is possible to participate and even perform on the UTAT without any acclimatization. In fact, this stay is a new option, so almost all the previous participant didn’t get acclimatized and their race went well.

    After many requests, we ended up creating this short stay to give you the best chance of succeeding and to extend your exploration.

    *No technical means can replace physiological adaptation (source: Santé et Altitude/ARPE)
