Spring in Meski & Aoufous

The origins of the Oued Ziz can be found in Meski, where warm, natural springs bubble to the surface beneath the picturesque ruins of the Ksar Meski. The French Foreign Legion extended the main pool and added steps forming a pleasant swimming pool much used by weekending locals. Beside it is a well-shaded campsite, and if you walk downstream and cross over the river, you can hike up to the deserted ksar (fortified village) for fabulous sunset views. The spring is signposted about 1km west of the main road.
