Lalla Takerkoust Lake

Thanks to the abundance of water, the Lalla Takerkoust dam is a good cooling-off point in the region. Fed by the river Oued Nfis, the lake has a shoreline stretching 7 km (4 miles) and offers fabulous views of High Atlas peaks. It was originally made by the French to ensure the surrounding Houz Plains were watered. There are various activities available such as trekking and horseback riding, as well as water sports (although the ethics of such activities on a reservoir are somewhat questionable), and an increasing number of hotels and guesthouses.
