Located in the High Atlas Mountains, three spectacular peaks await climbers who take on the seven day challenge that will take place September 19 -27.

The trek is being done in aid of Rennie Grove Hospice Care and events fundraiser Jo Hunt said: “An ideal candidate for the trek would be someone who enjoys being out of their comfort zone and trying something new.”

Jbel Toubkal,Jbel Ouanoukrim and M’Goun are Morocco’s three highest peaks and offer a tempting challenge to adventurous and fit trekkers. All the peaks are over 4,000m altitude and offer great trekking in the rugged and dramatic landscapes of Toubkal National Park and the Central High Atlas.
