Mountains Of Morocco: Day 9

Big Day!  Today we will climb  Jebel Toubkal (4167m /13,672ft.) North Africa’s and Morocco’s highest peak. From the summit, we’ll descend to our gite in Ait Souka.

DO YOU KNOW: The Moroccan flag is made up of an object in a red field. What is the object?

ANSWER: A five pointed green star

DID YOU KNOW: The first recorded ascent of Toubkal by Europeans was on 12 June, 1923 by the Marquis de Segonzac, Vincent Berger and Hubert Dolbeau. However, it is believed that the mountain may have been climbed many times before that date.
