Waterfalls

The famous cascades of Immouzzer are one of North Africa’s most beautiful waterfalls. The calcium-rich water flows most strongly between February and August, although recent droughts have frequently reduced it to a trickle. Given the stream of tourist stalls and faux guides (unofficial guides) leading to the falls, you may prefer Paradise Valley.

When it’s flowing, water falls off the edge of the plateau in several chutes, running down one cliff face known as the Bride’s Veil. The path to the foot of the falls finishes at an iridescent blue plunge pool with overhanging rocks and foliage. If you can cross the river here, you can climb to a plateau and see the top plunge pool, and caves once inhabited by hippies. The steep, 4km road from Immouzzer village down to the falls is one of many walks in the region.
