Saturday 14 January:Ourika Valley Waterfall excursion, Berber Houses, Cats, Camels, Night Market and evening swim.|
Today we went on a mini adventure in the Atlas Mountain precisely in the Ourika valley. It was a bit of mystery tour for us, as to avoid booking in town I asked our Riad to book it for us (and the price match my research) but i didn't realised there was 2 waterfalls. My own fault for just saying waterfall rather than the specific name (was planning to see Ouzoud..the tallest one in Africa) . Quite different to my plan but it ended up being a lovely out of the mayhem of the city.
Little stop in Berber village and see how argan oil is made, no intention of buying any. I know it is a lovely product but I am more coconut oil kind of girl, but they were not too pushy for once and nice to try different things made by it. Also being in a group you did not feel targeted
We lost some of our group there and did the final bit. We felt like mountain goats but it was worth it at the end we dipped our feet in the coldest water ever (silly me had packed our bikinis in the bag just in case…our feet turned blue)
