If you have a deep appreciation for nature, the waterfalls will undoubtedly be the highlight of your visit. Many visitors take the opportunity to swim in the river, but it’s worth considering that the water is quite icy. The first waterfall is easily accessible, but to reach the subsequent ones, you’ll need to venture further, requiring some climbing. Make sure to wear appropriate footwear for this adventure.

During this trip, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in the heart of traditional Berber life within the mountain villages. However, it’s important to be aware that some aspects of the experience may feel like a staged performance tailored for tourists. Typically, a local father will guide you through his house and offer a warm mint tea.

If you’re interested in exploring traditional weekly markets in the area, the Ourika market takes place on Mondays, while the Aghbalou market is held on Thursdays. Alternatively, if you approach the valley from the mountains, you can discover other fascinating markets like Tahanaout on Tuesdays and Asni on Saturdays. These markets provide a glimpse into the local culture and are worth exploring during your stay.
