Discover the breathtaking Cascades of Ouzoud, located just 2.5 hours (150km) northeast of Marrakesh in the mesmerizing Middle Atlas Mountains. These magnificent waterfalls are celebrated as one of the most captivating natural wonders in all of Morocco, making them an essential addition to your Marrakech itinerary.
Standing tall at over 100 meters, the Ouzoud Waterfalls are at their most photogenic during the mid-afternoon, when the sun casts a magical glow and creates stunning rainbows. While the currents in the pools at the falls’ base require caution, visitors can still enjoy a refreshing dip.
The surroundings are equally enchanting, with working watermills, olive trees (Ouzoud in Berber), and a fabulous landscape that has garnered attention from preservation associations. For the more adventurous, the area offers excellent opportunities for short treks, allowing you to immerse yourself in the natural beauty.
