Atlas mountains

Imlil is a small village in the high Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It is 1,740 metres (5,710 ft) above sea level. Imlil is close to the mountain Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in Northern Africa with over 4.100m. Imlil makes a good base for attempting to summit Toubkal. Imlil is the end of the tarmac road, and is a natural place to hire mountain guides and mules for the onward trek.
