Marrakech is a stunning city full of landscapes and natural mountains. One of the greatest natural sightseeing spots is Ourika Valley located 30 km south of Marrakech. The Ourika Valley lies in the first foothills of the High Atlas, a beautiful expanse of luxuriant green, its adobe villages clinging to the mountainsides. The “Jardin du Safran” in the village of TnineOurika is a saffron farm open to visitors, while a little further on, the Bio-aromatic Gardens grow 45 varieties of aromatic and medicinal plants, which you are invited to taste as well as to smell.
The terraced Timalizene Garden also offers visitors its special Berber tea, scented with homegrown herbs. The road stops at Setti-Fatma, at the end of the stunning valley, but those who are more adventurous can continue on foot to the seven waterfalls that await their discovery.
