If Chefchaouen becomes a little too heavy on the feet, the eyes and the wallet, it’s worth a gentle stroll down the cascades to get away from it all. The water drops through behind the town through a gorge littered with a variety of colourful...More

Even though we had a rental car, we chose to take a taxi to the waterfalls to avoid getting lost. 150 dirham each way for the entire vehicle, essentially 25 dirham per seat. Make SURE you arrange round trip transportation or the taxi mafia will...More

Over an hour grand taxi trip from Chefchaouen. You arrive at the footsteps of a canyon. Please get a guide. There are two spectacular natural wonders, yet it may be difficult seeing both in a day. The god's bridge will take over an hour walk...More

Great day trip to get out and breath some fresh air. We are competent hikers and I would allow 5 hours walking. Best to commence walk no later than 9am to avoid heat of the day and the hundreds of unprepared high heel wearing tourists....More

After all four of us in the group researched these falls and read inconsistent reviews we almost decided against it! I think describing oneself before describing the difficulty of a hike needs to be mandatory. Just to be honest, not negative. Yes, you HAVE to...More

It was a good trekking, with some difficulty specialy to cross the river. Good views and the waterfall is beautiful! Advice: don't go on sunday! It's crowded by locals!
