Highlights of this experience :

The Ourika valley and the Setti-Fatma waterfall.

The road begins to climb in the mountain at the height of Dar Caid-Ouriki whose Berber souk takes place on Monday at Thnine l'Ourika. Picturesque, it follows the course of the oued Ourika.

The valley, flanked by terraced crops, narrows after Arhbalou. On the left stands the jbel Yagour (2726 m). More than a thousand rock engravings have been counted there. Probably prior to the 1st millennium BC, they show humans, animals, weapons, chariots and geometric designs.

You can follow the torrential waters of the Ourika valley to the Setti-Fatma waterfall, nestled in the heart of the High Atlas mountains at an altitude of 1500 m. Magnificent view on the valley and the Angour massif, which culminates at 3616 m of altitude.

An incredible experience! We visited a Berber house, a spice and argan oil cooperative and finally we hiked through the Ourika valley. The views were spectacular. The guides explained all the details and sights of the visit. Very good! We were able to enjoy food and drinks at all the stops (not included in the price) and finally we had lunch at the foot of the river (not included in the price). All in all, it was a very pleasant experience! Thank you Jawad and company!

It was a great experience we started by visiting a Berber house it was very instructive, we then went to a cooperative of organic argan oil products where we drank tea while listening to explanations on the manufacture of products that we could then buy for a very good price! And to finish we visited the beautiful valley of ourika with its sumptuous waterfall (plan a small walk to climb to the top) it was an incredible experience the view of the valley was magnificent we even had the chance to cross live monkeys in freedom in the mountain the guides were very friendly I really recommend you to go there it's an experience not to be missed! Thank you 🙏
