Ouzoud Waterfalls day trip from Marrakech
The gigantic waterfalls of Ouzoud in the Middle Atlas, which are more than one hundred meters deep, are one of the most famous postcards in Morocco and an equally popular excursion destination.
The small village of Ouzoud is located about 200 kilometers north-east of Marrakech in the Middle Atlas and is a popular excursion destination especially among Moroccans. Famous is the settlement because of its imposing waterfalls: the Oued Ouzoud river thunders over three levels. In good weather, the sun conjures beautiful rainbow pictures from the dusty water in the air. At the foot of the waterfall Berber people live, which because of the numerous tourists their fear of humans have lost and surprisingly Keck occur.
On a hike downstream you can quickly escape the hustle and bustle
The journey to Ouzoud usually ends on the large parking lot above the waterfalls. From here, a concrete path, lined with several souvenir stands, cafe and stalls, leads down to the foot of the waterfall in several cascades. Once there, you can have a small tip for the other river bank to translate to escape the hustle and bustle, which takes place on some days, especially at lunch time. For example, you can descend the path that leads several kilometers downstream on the other side of the river and is relatively fast in almost human loneliness and beautiful nature. Previously, there are several small improvised cafe with a lot of reggae charm, which invite to a short rest and offer the last possibility on the hike downstream.
