Packing for Trekking Trips

Your main luggage will be carried by mule all the way up to the refuge and items like sleeping bag, spare clothes, etc. can be stored in there.
We advise you to take your luggage with you in a soft suitcase , a weekend bag or in a backpack

You will need a daypack for items you may need during the walk.

If you are heading into the High Atlas Mountains, keep in mind it can get quite cool in the evenings (even in spring and autumn).

  • Walking/trekking shoes
  • Basecamp footwear (e.g. flipflops or sneakers)
  • Several pairs of Trekking/leech socks
  • Hiking poles/walking sticks
  • Daypack (with hydrationpack)

Buy a small sleeping bag before you leave.
  • Travel pillow
