The Mountain Lake of Takerkoust

Visit Lake Takerkoust near Marrakech


Leave buzzy Marrakech behind and enjoy the beauty and solitude of Lake Takerkoust. The sparkling blue-hued water appears out of nowhere, an oasis surrounded by barren brown plateaus, Bedouin-style villages, and greenery scenes. Due to its elevation, you'll catch panoramic views of the High Atlas Mountains, creating a truly serene landscape of snow-capped mountain peaks, arid hills, dense forests, and a sprawling lake.

The lake makes for the perfect escape from the city for a swim, a morning of kayaking, or a picnic lunch. Enjoy it as a day trip or when traveling between Marrakech and the Agafay Desert.
