Marrakech is geographically situated at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, a mountain range that connects North Africa Algeria and Tunisia. The High Atlas is cut from the Draa River in the south and from the valley of Imlil, Ourika and Zat in north. Thanks to its geographical position Marrakech is a starting point for many day trips. From the hotel where you are staying, you can head towards the valley of Ourika, reach the Berber village of Sitti Fatma where you can have lunch in a berber cafe. On Mondays there is the market (souk) in Tnin, the centre of the valley, an opportunity to not be missed for a taste of rural life. If you want to walk (45-60 min) to the waterfalls, you can have a local guide. Do not forget to wear comfortable shoes suitable for long walks on streets and unpaved paths. The climb to see the falls is quite steep. The walk includes Oukaimeden too this part is closed during winter months due to snow. One option, weather permitting, is to return to Marrakech on the road which circles the valley of Ouirgane.
