Day 1: Marrakech - Ourika Valley - Ourika Waterfalls :
This trip takes you to a lush green valley situated about 60 Km from Marrakech. It is a pleasant prelude to the impressive Atlas Mountains and a fine escape from busy Marrakech. Along the road through this unspoilt and charming valley, scattered at intervals are series of tiny hamlets, interspersed by a few summer homes. The valley is Berber populated and feels quiet different from the country’s urban life.
The souk of Ourika is a small road side village which hosts a weekly Berber market on Mondays. This area is famed for it’s pottery and it’s varied samples of minerals and crystals.
