The Rif is a mainly mountainous region of northern Morocco, stretching from Cape Spartel and Tangier in the west to Ras Kebdana and the Moulouya River in the east, and from the Mediterranean Sea in the north to the river of Ouargha in the south. The Rif Mountains can be seen near the Mediterranean Coast in this orthorectified image of northern Morocco.

Also visible in the upper left corner is the mouth of the river Oued Laou, near the town of the same name. The source of the river can be found up in the Rif Mountains near Chefchaouen.
