Ouzoud Waterfalls

Ouzoud Waterfalls

















Not far from Marrakech, Ouzoud Waterfalls are existing in the Grand Atlas town of Tanaghmeilt, Azilal. They are lying down a road off the Marrakesh–Azilal Road. There are many facilities you can use to get there (cabs from Azilal, grand cabs from Beni Melal, or throught agencies from Marrakech). Azilal can be the easiest and the cheapest way to reach there, but many tourist recommend touristic tours from Marrakech in order to see the whole region. The province of Azilal is a big land of mystery, full of tales and sights. Visitors almost get drunk on sensations.

Ouzoud Waterfalls























Ouzoud is an old Berber word that has a meaning, close enough to "the grinding grain", and the local people seem to be very proud of this name. The majority there speak berber as a native language, but since it has been a tourist attraction area for many decades, people learn to speak so many languages, including English, French and Spanish.

The contiguity of these sappy and voluptuous falls in a land of red sandstone, dust and dessert somehow glares your prospects and puts a "sunset" in your mind. The amphitheatre of the falls falling into small lakes in a fertile and green valley that stays almost invisible till the last moment. The weather is always warm and relaxing and there is always a chance where to play, eat and sleep. When you visit the site, you will find restaurants with Moroccan traditional food, caf├ęs, shops, hotels, camps and canoeing trips.  The heroic gladness of the red landscape and the enjoyable life giving power of water seems to be captivated in every breeze, the arching rainbows add more colours to the place and all you can do then is simply catch your breath in wonder. The Ouzoud Waterfalls site is a real vacation paradise.



Not only are The Ouzoud Waterfalls a big pleasure for eyes, but they are also a considerable amusement for ears. The fascinating roar, the water make, seems to dwell like an ancient ritual song.
