Ourika valley & Atlas Mountains
According to its plentiful waterfalls and good nature, Ourika valley is considered as one of the most visited destinations and such a popular attraction. The Ourika valley spreads at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains which is quite a beautiful location. However, the valley is distinguished from other natural spots by the pure green earthy aspects which made it one of the preserved Moroccan valleys. 64km from Marrakech, Tcheddirt and Oukaimeden can be reahed to the end of the village by the mule if you wish. This will sound much good if you have not ever tried it before. These two villages have the most amazing ancient cravings in Morocco. They are prehistorically dwell in Ourika valley. Directly to Imlil, the route holds on to the mountain where Mount Toubkal lays at the end. This is the perfect point to start trekking if you are one of the ones admiring this activity.
All of the African beauty is seen here in the Moroccan countryside. However, the seven waterfalls of Setti Fatima and the rocks can’t be reached easily. According to the harsh conditions of rocks, you need to fully prepare yourself with the fitting boots and clothes. Stay alert my friends; it is some kind of danger. In addition to that, while getting from one side of the valley to the other one, you will cross a number of Berber villages that are welcoming and friendly. The panoramic views will be amazing during this trip; the group will feel refreshed in the middle of nature.
This natural place is considered as a pure land where spoiling did not find a route to it despite its nearness to Marrakesh. Can you see the discrepancy? Even the natives Berbers are still living in their pure home of Ourika valley. What an excellence!

They are friendly people welcoming the visitors in their humble homes which reflects the good- natured type of Native Moroccans. The family will pleasingly serve the visitors offering them the Arabic tea, the organic olive oil and the pure butter. These are some of the products they make from their land and this is why they are tastier.
In Ourika day trip, the group will have the chance to ride camels in the deep valley for about 35 minutes. After that, our lovely tour will continue to reach Setti Fatma which is considered as one of the most preferred weekend destinations for a number of the Moroccans.
