Description

The Trip to the Ourika valley , 68 km southeast of Marrakech , offers a pleasant tour of the lower foothills of the Atlas. Beyond the village of Tnine-Ourika , the valley , through which flows the Ourika, becomes verdant. The largest souk in the valley takes place in the village on Mondays. All along the road that follows the course of the wadi, pise hamlets, a few isolated houses and small hotels cling to the hillside. Gardens and plots of cultivated land shaded by many fruit trees are laid out along the valley bottom. Beyond Aghbalou , at an altitude of 1500 m the narrows and gently rises . The road comes to an end at Setti Fatma , a good starting point for hikes, Seven Waterfalls flow down the rocky scree above the village. The first of these is easy to reach by walking up the course of the wadi.
