Mount Toubkal, Morocco
At 4,167m, Mount Toubkal holds the distinction of being the tallest mountain in Northern Africa. Toubkal is easily reached from the Moroccan city of Marrakech and lays at the heart of a network of trekking trails that offer “striking high altitude mountain scenery, lush valleys and relatively untouched Berber communities”, said tourdust.com. Visitors will encounter snowy terrain from December to April, but the trails are open to trekkers year round. The climb normally takes two to three days.
