Setti Fatma is a small village in the Ourika Valley in Morocco. The old berber village is now completely centered around tourism with the seven falls being the main attraction.

Get in


By car

From Marrakech

Drive south on road P2017 and continue straight at the Oukaimeden exit near Aghbalou. Setti Fatma is located at the end of the road just after Asgaour. Ignore everyone that tries to show you where to park and settle for a spot along the river.

Get around



  • From the end of the road, hike to a set of seven waterfalls. While the first fall is accessible to most, climbing is neccessary in order to reach the remaining falls. Ignore the numerous faux guides and book the official guides instead which have their office on the main street.


  • Berber rugs and carpets.


  • There are a number of cafes along the river.



  • Hotel Tafoukt. Small, newish hotel located near the entrance to town. Has a restaurant and good views of the valley. 80dh.


Get out

Setti Fatma can be used as a starting point for treks in the high Atlas mountains to among others Tacheddirt (3892m) and Oukaimeden (2650m).
