“A sure-fire favourite has to be North Africa’s highest mountain, Mt. Toubkal. Standing at 4,167m, the tallest peak in the Atlas Mountains requires a sidewind-fighting scramble along the ridgeline to reach the summit and rewards the worthy with unrivalled panoramic views of the range. Not for the fainthearted, temperatures hover in the 30s and 40s when summer rolls around, whilst October-March requires some serious winter mountaineering skills, crampons and all. In the summer, pitch your tent at Basecamp, sitting pretty at 3,200m, before heading up the final 1,000m in the dead of night to catch sunrise from the top. "
