Re Morocco
spider28
I walked in Morocco and the Atlas mountains some years ago.
I didn't go to Toubkal but did visit various other places.
One piece of advice. Be prepared for the heat and UV. And in particular be vigilant about food. The party of 14 I was in ALL had serious bums and tums problems requiring visits to doctors for some time.
Do not eat anything washed in local water. Peel anything yourself, with your hands or tools you have sterilised. Eat cooked food but watch out for how the plates/ cups were washed.
Bring energy bars and your own food so you have a choice.
Respect people's choices about photographing them.

Have a great trip.
