I wrote about the Ouzoud Falls, or Cascades d’Ouzoud, in my last post, but as they are just so pretty I thought I’d include a few more of my photographs.
The Ouzoud Falls – ouzoud meaning olive in Berber – are located in the Azilal district in the Atlas mountains around 150km northeast of Marrakech.
These beautiful falls are over 120m high, with several jets of water merging into one larger stream towards the base. At the bottom, rainbows can almost constantly be seen playing in the mist. Ouzoud is a berber name refering to the many nearby olive trees.
