Rabat – God’s Bridge is an impressive rock formation stretching over 25 meters above the water. It is a naturally formed bridge which stretches above the Oued Farda River in Chefchaouen.
The city of Chefchaouen, also known as Chaouen by the locals, is home to the impressive and serene Bridge of God. This popular tourist attraction is about a 40 minute drive outside of the main city and includes a challenging hike to the destination. Travelers can either take a taxi or a tour bus to this area.
After arrival, hikers find there are a few different paths to choose from, one much more challenging than the other. The path along the mountain takes hikers through the brush and dirt. Alternatively, hikers can venture on the dirt path, which is much clearer, down to the river.
Once at the river, however, expect to jump from rock to rock and get a little wet. The path contains slippery rocks covered in moss and rickety bridges made from sticks. There are streams and small waterfalls throughout the hike. The scenery is beautiful and tranquil. Unfortunately, trash is seeping into the streams from the main water sources and from tourist traffic. Nonetheless, the entire hike provides views of lush foliage, impressive mountains, and crystal clear water.
There are also restaurants along the river where travelers can stop and eat. Camping along the river is also an option for those who want to experience the nature in its entirety, as there are small flat areas where tents can be set up. Also, along the river are pools of water which are great for cooling off on the hike.
Whichever way you choose to travel, God’s Bridge is sure to be a memorable landmark in your journey.
