Situated in the province of Azilal, within easy access from Marrakech, one of the most surprising attractions in Morocco., the falls are close to the Atlas Mountains village of Tanaghmeilt and take their name from the Berber for “grinding grain.” an ideal and popular day trip any time of year.
At 8 am, we will meet you at your accommodation, then escape the heat and hustle of Marrakech on a full-day sightseeing tour of the Ouzoud Falls, refreshing waterfalls located in the Middle Atlas mountains, approximately 90 miles (150 kilometers) northeast of the city. On our way we will be able to explore the countryside, passing through many traditional Moroccan towns and rural villages.
Cool off under the shade of olive trees and see the cascades of the El Abid River.
Upon arrival, you will see the river plunge 300 feet (100 meters) in a complex network of waterfalls that cascade one into another through 3 major and several minor drops. The impressive roar soothes the soul like an old lullaby. The juxtaposition of these verdant falls in a land of red sandstone, dust and desert will put a spring in your step at the sheer beauty of nature. Marvel at the majestic succession of cascades and the permanent rainbow created by the mist thrown up by the water. The life-giving force of water is captured in every leaf and exploding flower bud that clings to the river gorge.
Lunch and time at leisure and the opportunity to take some superb photography that you will always treasure…
