IMLIL TO OURIKA VALLEY DETAILS ITINERARY
The village of Setti Fatma lies at the end of the road up Ourika Valley. The end of the road also marks the beginning of a scenic hiking trail leading to a grand waterfall. Hence, the town is a big tourist stop and a miniature industry developed around the influx of tourists. There are several shops that sell artefacts and a couple of cafés for a quick lunch
There is also a hotel for those spending a night. The village is extremely scenic with snow-capped mountains and steep cliffs surrounding it.
The Setti Fatma Moussem – one of the three most important festivals in the country – takes place for four days around the middle of August, centred on the Koubba of Setti Fatma, some way upstream from the Café des Cascades. Entry to the koubba is forbidden to non-Muslims, but the festival itself is as much a fair and market as it is a religious festival and well worth trying to attend if your trip coincides with it .
