We have partnered with adventure company Discover Adventure to offer this once-in-a-lifetime challenge climbing North Africa’s highest peak – Mount Toubkal.
By taking on this challenge you’ll also raise money for our New Deaf Academy Appeal to support young Deaf lives by building a world-class new Academy, in the Devon seaside town of Exmouth.
The High Atlas Mountains run south-west through Morocco. They are remote, barren and absolutely stunning. Our challenge is to climb their highest peak – and the highest in North Africa: Mount Toubkal, at 4,167m.
Our ascent is tough, steep and rocky, and the effects of being at altitude add to the challenge. However, the magnificent views from the summit – reaching across to the Sahara Desert – and our sense of achievement more than compensate for our efforts.
We also witness the local way of life as we pass through colourful villages, where Berbers farm in the river valleys and herd goats and sheep in the mountains. The ancient city of Marrakech, with its labyrinthine streets and intriguing souks, provides the perfect contrast.
