There is very little water in the area between Ifrane and Fez due to the fact that there are 3 mountain ranges in between the Mediterranean coast and this locale (Rif, Atlas & Middle Atlas) preventing rainfall from reaching this area.

The nature and the colours are amazing, relaxing time and fine walking are a must. Sure it is a place to visit and to enjoy the nice weather and the fresh air.
