Top 6 most beautiful and astonishing natural attractions in Morocco
Close your eyes. Imagine. It's hot. Everywhere around you, an architecture crumbling with details and colors, spaces overflowing with life, stalls piled up in the alleys, enticing smells, spices tickling your taste buds, friendly people at each door.
Travel a little further. Huge dunes, breathtaking mountains, sea as far as the eye can see, ocher-colored land, houses in the rock, herds of goats in the villages.
Let yourself be transported to the twelve most beautiful places in Morocco.
1. The Todgha Gorges
In southern Morocco, explore the Atlas Mountains. Take the road in the heart of the Todgha valley. Along the way, split limestone cliffs three hundred meters high. You enter the Todgha lodges.
To visit Morocco and experience the grandeur of its landscapes, the Todgha gorges are among the most fabulous. You will have the feeling of being engulfed by these giants of nature. Then, the center of the gorges is accessible on foot. You can soak in the water of the Todgha river, the river that waters the valley and gives it its amazing fertility. During your visit, especially, look up! Do not be surprised by the climbers that you will find hanging on the sides of the cliffs.
2. The Dades Gorges
In an equivalent style, the Dades gorges are just as spectacular. They are located further west of the Todgha Gorges. They again testify to the incredible beauty of southern Morocco. The houses blend into the rocks, the views are breathtaking, the geological formations fascinating and the colors hardly believable. For those wishing to visit Morocco, looking like a Grand Canyon, this is a place not to be missed.
For a lasting memory, admire the immensity of the Dades Gorges at sunset from one of the highest points above the road. Finally, you will notice that these are also the playground for hikers and climbers.
3. Merzouga and the Sahara dunes
The Saharan village of Merzouga is the ideal gateway to explore the largest Moroccan dunes. Also called Erg Chebbi, this lunar massif of the Sahara offers a real postcard landscape. Here, it is the desert, the dunes and the camels as you have always imagined them! As far as the eye can see, you will only find a sea of golden sand.
To take advantage of this exceptional place during your stay in Morocco, many activities are available to you: camel ride, night under the stars with Saharouis nomads, night in Berber bivouacs, or simply a sporty walk.
4. The Paradise Valley
A place that lives up to its name! Although it is a route known to tourists, we advise you to visit this valley. The Paradise Valley is one of the most sublime. At the gates of Agadir, this wonder of nature offers streams, waterfalls, natural pools of turquoise water, stunning gorges and great biodiversity. Do not hesitate to inquire about the hiking trails. With or without a guide, do not hesitate to explore less traveled paths. An opportunity to awaken the adventurer in you during a trip to the lands of Morocco.
5. The Fint Oasis
South of Ouarzazate, discover the Fint Oasis. Meaning "hidden" in Berber, this enclave opens the doors to a true paradise. After visiting Morocco, you will understand that this is a land of striking contrasts.
Here, the lush nature of the palm grove contrasts with the blushing cliffs. The Frint Oasis is also a wonderful witness to the ingenuity of Moroccans. The irrigation system allows the vegetation to thrive in a harsh environment, especially since the palm plantations are never made at random ...
6. Ouzoud waterfalls
The Ouzoud waterfalls will definitely make you happy! It is undeniably one of the most beautiful natural sites in Morocco. These waterfalls of one hundred and ten meters fall in tears on three landings dug in the rock. To get to the Ouzoud waterfalls, follow a hiking trail leading you through the forest, to meet merchants of all kinds and monkeys. Be careful, they are real pirates!
When you get to the feet of the waterfalls, you will feel tiny and you will not resist the urge to approach these gigantic falls. Take a funny boat to cross to the other side and take a tajine break in front of the gigantic falls. On the return, the panoramas are just as prodigious. Go look for where you can see the rainbow above the waterfalls.
