Les cascades d'Ouzoud sont des chutes d'eau situées au Maroc, dans le Grand Atlas, dans le village de Tanaghmeilt, province de Azilal. À 120 km de Beni Mellal et 150 km de Marrakech, elles constituent une attraction touristique importante. Nées de l'oued Ouzoud, elles mesurent environ 110 mètres de hauteur.

Ouzoud Waterfalls d'Ouzoud (110 m high) are located in the Grand Atlas village of Tanaghmeilt, in the province of Azilal, 150 km north-east of Marrakech, in Morocco.
It is the most visited site of the region. In the vicinity, green valleys, mills, orchards and a superb circuit of the gorges of the El Abid River (in Arabic, "Slaves' River" ) are found.
Ouzoud is the Berber word for "olive", referring to the nearby olive trees.
The bottom of the falls is accessible through a shaded path of olive trees. At the summit of the falls, there exist a dozen of old small mills that are still in use. In the twilight, one can observe whole troops of monkeys. One can also follow a narrow and difficult track leading to the road of Beni Mellal while descending the gorges from the "wadi el-Abid" by a canyon sometimes which one does not distinguish the bottom with nearly 600 meters.
Ouzoud rushes over 100 meters at the bottom of a ravine lined with green vineyards and calcareous concretions. Escape from the fog of the projection of water in the rocks creates a rainbow filled. The roar of the waterfalls, bubbling water at the bottom of the "pots giant hole by erosion, the exuberance of vegetation, all combine to make a romantic and fascinating spectacle.

Many local and national associations lead projects to protect and preserve the site
