Ouzoud Falls in Morocco

Morocco can be called a country with unique and luxurious natural sights, where there is a huge variety of natural landscapes: mountains, valleys, deserts, forests, parks, gardens.
Of all the famous attractions especially want to highlight the Ouzoud Falls (Ouzoud Waterfalls).
It is located in the gorge of the High Atlas Ridge, the upper part of which is covered with snow until the end of spring. When the snow melts in spring, many river systems form, some of which cut through the most beautiful gorges in the ridge.
So, a small seemingly mountainous river Ouzud rushing from the mountains quietly flows through the valley and suddenly collapses into a dip, and breaking into several branches forms a magical waterfall cascade Ouzud immersed in green olive groves and representing a kind of oasis in the desert, because it is located in rather dry region.
The cascades of the waterfall are cast down from a height of 120 m (in some sources 110 m is indicated). Their number and power varies depending on the time of year. Especially they are effects in spring, when the river beds still do not have time to dry up on the way to the precipice.
It is believed that the waterfall has three upper cascade, in fact there may be more. All of them overcome another level, where turning into one stream (main drain) reach the bottom of the cliff.
At the bottom, several natural ponds are formed, which are connected by short ducts and all comers bathe in them, resting from the heat. Here you can also take a ride on the pleasure ferries, in the cafes at the waterfall, to taste Moroccan cuisine. Uzud Falls is very popular among foreign tourists and locals. It is a kind of mini-recreation center in Morocco.
The name “Uzud” in the Berber language (dialect of tashelkhit) means “olive trees.” Apparently not without reason, because the olive trees grow and on the slopes of the rocks and the path to the waterfalls leads through the wonderful olive groves.
Interestingly, the French came up with another romantic name for him – “Cover of lovers”.
The waterfall can be admired not only at its foundation. Magnificent views from viewing platforms, which are located at different heights throughout the tourist trail, laid in the rocks. Against the background of reddish stone rocks covered with moss in some places, the waterfalls look especially contrast.
At the top of the slope, where the waterfall falls, you can see ancient water mills, once processing wheat and barley. Even now they are still in working condition. And the water from the waterfall was used to irrigate the fields of the surrounding neighborhoods, as evidenced by manually dug ditches.
Monkeys, appearing at the waterfalls in the evening and asking for various treats from tourists, are of great interest.
