A bit of a hippy hangout in the 60s, the Paradise Valley is a must visit the place and when people came to camp by the clear blue pools and waterfalls, it gives memory to visitors that may later be remembered to put a smile on your face in Morocco holidays.
Although the stories that many visitors came here with Jimi Hendrix and gave the valley its name seem to be just pop legends. A section of the Tamraght River valley in the Moroccan High Atlas Mountains, the Paradise Valley is also a small part of the entire Moroccan land. It is situated about 20 km north of Agadir and the valley is known for its plenty of rock pools and small waterfalls.
Taggart Ankrim is a name which is given by the local Berber as the valley tracks the course of the Ankrim River and is now a natural landscape reserve where you are still allowed to camp freely, no restrictions from the local police. You also can spend a day in Paradise Valley on a day-trip from Taghazout in your recent Morocco Holiday Packages
, staying on Morocco’s Atlantic surfing shoreline, near Agadir and if you are in the area it once places you won’t want to omit.
Via Paradise Valley, a beautiful palm-lined gorge, trip up to Immouzer des Ida Outanane– is a superb trip from Agadir. It is possible in a day but it is more enjoyable to stay at one of submerges or camp in the valley (62km from the beautiful Agadir). Paradise Valley starts around 10km east of Aourir, a profound, palm-lined gorge, with a river snaking along the vile. The distance of 2.7-kilometer walking trail at around is a well-marked which is 28km from Aourir, or you can hire a guide to discovering the valley’s Berber villages, and it’s a splendid place to camp, though terrain your tent well away from the riverbed in the case of flash overflows.
From Paradise Valley, an additional 20km of winding mountain road takes you to the village of IMMOUZER DES IDA OUTANANE, a trivial regional and market Centre (of the Ida Outanane tribe, as its full name recommends) inserted away in a westerly outcrop of the Atlas. The waterfall, for which the village was well-known, is nearby and was best seen at its foot, 4km effortless to the northwest. Tactlessly the falls have been very unfavorably affected by lack over the last few years; tight control of irrigation now reduces the waterfall on most occasions to a trickle, with the villagers “turning on” the waterfalls for special events only. Though the frightened canopy of the falls is of interest in its own right, and there’s a full drop pool.
For walkers, the whole area is perfect. A 4-kilometer rough road twists down to the foot of the falls, with cafés and souvenir shops on both sides of the riverbed.
A path from the lowest point in the garden of the Hotel des Cascades tracks a water channel across cliffs (it’s then possible to clamber down into the olive groves, but it isn’t a way for the timorous or weak, and ascending again is harder still). Numerous of the staff at the hotel can help you spot local wildlife, including golden eagles and crag martins.
