After a filling breakfast, we climb gradually until we reach the tiny settlement of Sidi Chamharouch at (2,310 m) where we stop to rest. This village, nestled on a steep hillside, is home to a shrine and the tomb of the King of Jinns. We continue to climb until we reach the base of Mount Toubkal where the surrounding environment is barren and rocky. We arrive at the Neltner refuge to a welcoming cup of mint tea.
The afternoon will be spent learning how to use our crampons and ice axes, testing them out on nearby snow with our guides. We will then have an early dinner, before getting some rest.
