Source Bleue de Meski is a natural spring water pool fed by springs from the Meski palmerie. Meski lies 17km south of Er-Rahidia, near the beginning of the Tafilalt region. This place is certainly on the beaten path and a small tourist industry has grown up around the Source Bleue. While the number of shops and amenities here might be off putting for some, it doesn't detract from either the beauty of the lake or the scenic natural surroundings.

Accommodation is available around the pool, and there were a good number of camper vans here during our visit. If you don?t fancy staying overnight, you can also park and explore for the day. We drove in, had a quick look at the lake and then hiked across to the ruined Meski Ksar, overlooking the palm grove. This was one of the best hikes of our trip. The scenery was fantastic and we met no-one on route save for a few Berber women washing clothes in the river.
