Also most of them speak good English and other European languages. So even if you are not the fittest person you can do it and view the beautiful waterfalls, charming little art shops and appreciate the berber way of life.
On your way down from the waterfall take a break, dip your feet in the river and enjoy a delicious tagine. Freshly prepared for all the hungry trekkers.
