Imouzzer Ida Ou Tanane is a small village 60 km northeast of Agadir. It is a favourite daytrip for locals who come to visit the cascades.

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

The best option is to take a grand taxi from Aourir (30 dirhams, a little more than an hour) that runs every couple of hours if there are enough people.

To get to Auorir take a bus running north on Mohammed V (31, 32) in the direction of Taghazout or Tamri (there might be more). The trip should cost around 5 dirhams.

See[edit]

Do[edit]

Walking down the road for about half an hour the river turns into a second set of cascades. Just at their top the water carved deep holes in the stone. This is a great place for a little swim. Young locals come here to jump from the top of the rocks.

On the road from Aourir is a walking path called Paradise Valley.

Buy[edit]

The region is famous for its almond-trees and as such almond products such as Amalou are sold here. It might also be a good place to buy locally produced honey.

Eat[edit]

Down at the river is a café, a restaurant (tajine for 2: ~80 dirhams). The hotel (see below) also runs a restaurant.

There are more eateries at the crossroads up the mountain, however the road takes about 3½ km to get up there.
