Ouzoud Falls

Waterfall Marrakech, Morocco

Like water in the desert Ouzoud Falls

Ouzoud Waterfalls (Amazigh: Imuzzar n wuẓuḍ, French: Cascades d'Ouzoud) (110 m high) are located near the Moyen Atlas village of Tanaghmeilt, in the province of Azilal, 150 km northeast of Marrakech, in Morocco. Ouzoud means "the act of grinding grain" in Berber. This seems to be confirmed by the frequent mills in the region.

The bottom of the falls is accessible through a shaded path of olive trees. At the summit in the falls, there is a dozen old small mills that are still in use. One can also follow a narrow and difficult track leading to the road of Beni Mellal. While descending the gorges from the "wadi el-Abid" in a canyon sometimes one does not distinguish the bottom which is nearly 600 meters down. It is the most visited site of the region. In the vicinity, green valleys, mills, orchards and a superb circuit of the gorges of the El Abid River (in Arabic, "Slaves' River" ) are found. Many local and national associations lead projects to protect and preserve the site.
