A Diversity Of Landscapes To Discover In Morocco
Here is a selection of beautiful landscapes of Morocco, which will not leave you untouched.
For lovers of escapades and nature lovers, an ideal hike: the Akchour waterfalls and the Pont de Dieu.
Akchour is a small village 30 km from Chefchaouen. It is a marvellous site of a still pristine natural beauty and considered among the most beautiful places of Morocco. More and more tourists are visiting it since the opening of the natural park of Talassemtane.
It is easily accessible from Chefchaouen, taking the road leading to the Moroccan resort, Oued Laou.
It is also a good idea to tour from Chefchaouen to Oued Laou, passing through the village of Akchour.
You will discover scenery that is still wild and of rare beauty.
Between the streams flowing from springs, limpid rivers, mountains and gorges, this panorama will awaken your senses,
LAKE OF BIN EL OUIDANE:
In the centre of the Atlas, formed by the dam on the Oued El Abid and whose crystalline waters reflect all the beauty of nature Bin el Ouidane is to be found.
This lake covers nearly 4000 hectares at an altitude of more than 800 meters, making it the highest lake in Africa.
Blending the blue of the crystalline water, the ochre of the surrounding land and the green of the local olive trees, the landscape of Bin el Ouidane Lake is breath-taking.
What unmistakably attracts the eye is the colour of its waters. The lake's colour, which changes according to the seasons and the course of the clouds in the sky, sometimes gives it a Mediterranean air, sometimes a Scottish air. Whether it wears a turquoise or metallic robe, Lake Bin el Ouidane immediately grabs the attention of visitors and hikers alike.
THE DUNES OF MERZOUGA:
This immense field of dunes stretches over 110 square kilometres.
Erg Chebbi contains the highest dunes in Morocco, some of which are 150m tall. From their summit, the panorama is exceptional.
We advise you to climb the dunes at sunset when the temperature is cooler to enjoy the sun setting over the lake.
The camel drivers offer tourists various walks, the most popular being that at sunset.
THE WATERFALLS OF OUZOUD:
The village of Ouzoud is located eighteen kilometers from the Marrakech-Azilal road.
The waterfalls are 110 meters high; they dominate an unspoilt landscape of almond trees, olive trees and fig trees.
The waterfalls of Ouzoud impress visitors with their size and also by the beautiful environment in which they are located. Down at the bottom, swimming is possible as the water is very fresh.
The visitor can indulge in activities such as shopping or tasting the delicacies prepared on the spot in the restaurants, which serve excellent Berber cuisine, as well as purchasing from Berber handicraft shops in the Middle Atlas that offer beautiful items.
THE DAKHLA LAGOON:
In the south of Morocco at the meeting point between the Sahara and the Atlantic, an incomparable beauty is waiting to be discovered.
Kite-surfing and windsurfing are in the spotlight in a turquoise lagoon.
The city has now become one of the stages of the world kitesurfing championships.
The oasis of Imlili, with its small salt lakes and the Asmaa spring are the main attraction. It is known for its hot sulphurous waters in the heart of the desert, which need a 4x4 to get there.
THE TODRA GORGE:
The Todra gorge is considered one of the most beautiful natural sites in the Kingdom of Morocco.
The walls of the canyon, which measure 300 meters high along hundreds of meters, are incredibly impressive.
To reach the gorge there are two possibilities - on foot or on a well-paved asphalt road - to discover a site of many beautiful landscapes.
In this place there are a few hotels and restaurants which are the starting point for hiking and climbing.
Like a ribbon of greenery in the middle of the desert expanses, it is 20 kilometres long with an average width of 1 to 2 kilometres. It is irrigated by the Todra river of the Great Atlas, which never lacks water, in its central valley.
