Morocco’s Magical Cascades

n505270688_814974_676311

Deep inside a Berber village of Morocco, in the Middle Atlas, only hours away from the Imperial city of Marrakech, lies one of the most majestic waterfalls, the Cascades d’Ouzoud. One of the Top 10 Places Not to Miss, and undoubtedly a stunning natural wonder of Morocco, along with the Todra Gorge, and the Erg Chebbi Dunes.

After exploring the manic streets of Marrakech Lizzi Thomson, of the University of York 2010, dove into the gentle cascades with ten or her close friends traveling together from England. Thomson said, “The cascades are what many of the Muslims in Morocco associate with their idea of paradise. They were so peaceful and unspoiled!” The group swam together in falls further down the valley surrounded by monkeys!

Thomson described this experience as surreal and continued, “Swimming in the falls was so relaxing. It felt like a million miles away from city life. There were really deep plunge pools carved out by the waterfall so when I jumped in it felt absolutely bottomless.”

Most travelers venturing to the Cascade d’Ouzoud arrive by private 4×4 vehicles directly if on a tour. Another way to reach the falls is through Marrakech, or you can even pass through the tiny Berber village of Ouzoud.
