Zaouiate Oued Ifrane

is a city in the Middle Atlas mountains of Morocco.

Understand

Better known as Zaouia d'Ifrane, or even Ifrane if you are within the village limits, this Berber village is often confused for another town in the mid-Atlas with the name Zaouia d'Ifrane, and many times it is even confused for the larger city of Ifrane proper itself. Let it be known, Zaouiate Oued Ifrane or Zaouia d'Ifrane or Ifrane or Zaouia is neither of those places, it is much, much more beautiful. The village of between 500-1000 residents (depending on the time of year) sits under a dramatic and extremely unique geological feature, a 200 foot travertine plateau provides a backdrop of caves, hanging plants and waterfalls. Zaouiate Oued Ifrane translates to 'holy place of caves' and the village and its' surrounding landscape creates an air even more awe inspiring than the title suggests.

Get in

Zaouiate Oued Ifrane is located about 100K south of Fez. The road that dead ends at the village turns off from the main roadway after the town of Souk L'Hdd and before the city of Mrirt.
