Ouzoud Falls

Ouzoud Waterfalls (français. Cascades d'Ouzoud) (110 m high) are located in the Grand Atlas village of Tanaghmeilt, in the province of Azilal, 150 km north-east of Marrakech, in Morocco.

It is the most visited site of the region. In the vicinity, Green valleys, mills, orchards and a superb circuit of the gorges of the El Abid River (in Arabic, "Slaves' River" ), are found.

Ouzoud is the Berber word for "olive", referring to the nearby olive trees.

The bottom of the falls is accessible through a shaded path of olive trees. At the summit of the falls, there exist a dozen of old small mills that are still in use. In the twilight, one can observe whole troops of monkeys. One can also follow a narrow and difficult track leading to the road of Beni Mellal while descending the gorges from the "wadi el-Abid" by a canyon sometimes which one does not distinguish the bottom with nearly 600 meters.

Many local and national associations lead projects to protect and preserve the site.

Awesome waterfalls in the middle of the desert. Go for a refreshing swim at the bottom to cool off.

Profiter de la.vue et du calme de cette endroit. Ne rater pas la descente en bas. Et les balades sur le radeau.

Baignes toi et fais un plongeon dans les petites cascades ou fais un tour en "bateau" à la grande cascade. Endroit magnifique et magique!
