  • Driven by car along the roads. Good to do and nice views. With our baby we dared not totally hiking to the waterfall of Akchour so we only visited these on the side of the road. You can picnic there and there is a playground

  • The waterfalls are beautiful, the waterways is steep better to have a guide that with a few euros helps you in the climb. You have to have the shoes, great guide Mustafa ' a local guy
