Ouzoud Falls is the collective name for several tall waterfalls that empty into the El-Abid River gorge. This popular tourist destination is located near the Moyen Atlas village of Tanaghmeilt, in the province of Azilal, 150 km northeast of Marrakech, Morocco.
Ouzoud means “the act of grinding grain” in Berber. This seems to be confirmed by the frequent mills in the region.
The bottom of the falls is accessible through a shaded path of olive trees. At the summit of the falls, there are a dozen old small mills that are still in use. One can also follow a narrow and difficult track leading to the road of Beni Mellal. While descending the gorges from the “wadi el-Abid” in a canyon sometimes one does not distinguish the bottom which is nearly 600 meters down.
It is the most visited site in the region. In the vicinity, green valleys, mills, orchards, and a superb circuit of the gorges of the El Abid River are found. Many local and national associations lead projects to protect and preserve the site.
