PARADISE VALLEY

Tamraght River Valley, Agadir
Morocco

“One of Morroco’s best natural sites for hiking lovers. The spot is down south not far from Agadir. And its all about the blue of the water, the waterfalls, the small canyons and the authentic spirit of the place.

 

-Larbi Tiamani

The trip up to Immouzer des Ida Outanane – via Paradise Valley, a beautiful palm-lined gorge – is a superb excursion from Agadir. It is feasible in a day (Immouzer is 62km from Agadir) but it is more enjoyable to stay at one of the auberges or camp in the valley. Paradise Valley begins around 10km east of Aourir, a deep, palm-lined gorge, with a river snaking along the base. There’s a well-marked 2.7-kilometre walking trail at around 28km from Aourir, or you can hire a mule to explore the valley’s Berber villages, and it’s a glorious place to camp, though pitch your tent well away from the riverbed in case of flash floods. (via Rough Guides)
