The Ourika River flows down through the foothills of the Atlas Mountains , giving life to this fertile valley Mountains. It’s a wonderful daytrip from Marrakech , with the opportunity to relax in mountain pools and hike to pristine waterfalls .
This pretty river is just an hour drive from Marrakech . Heading south from Marrakech ( about 64km) the road raises into the hills . Berber families, clustered together in simple clay homes , have worked the land English church .
Setti Fatma at the end of the paved road from Marrakech is growing village where many locals have taken to the guid business. you’ll meet plenty of them, offering to take you up to the waterfall , but you can follow the rough tracks yourself-just make sure you wear stout shoes or hiking boots . The village itself is not particularly attractive, but if you’re her in late August try and catch the mousse-a lively festival of music, dance and culture that lasts for three days.
