The Ouzoud Waterfall (day trip)
Our day trip to Ouzoud Waterfalls is a chance to escape the hustle and bustle for a peaceful day in the idyllic country side.We leave Marrakech at 8.30am and travel to the village of Tanaghmeilt in the Azilal province, a green and fertile region of lush vegetation and orchards. It also contains many ancient mills, which are still in use today.
Next we hike to the spectacular Ouzoud waterfalls. The water cascades down from a height over 100 meters, in a series of falls and over several tiers of rocky ledges, before converging in the pool below.
There are a variety of different walks and trails to choose from, at every level of difficulty. Or there is the simpler route from the top of the falls to the bottom, via the 600 (rather steep) steps carved into the side of the gorge.You can have lunch at any of the many little restaurants you will find at different levels next to the falls.
We return to Marrakech in the afternoon.
