Todra Gorge History
Near the High Atlas town of Tinerhir, at the end of a lush
valley of date palms and villages, hemmed in by barren craggy
mountains, is one of Morocco's most glorious sights. The Todra
Gorge is some 300m (984ft) high but only 10m (33ft) wide at its
narrowest point, with the Todra River running through it.
We had lunch in the main gorge then drove through the gorge
and had a pleasant walk downhill back to the gorge. It was
a great opportunity for more pictures. Rock climbing
(we saw 2 climbers about half way up the cliff) is
becoming popular on the gorge's vertical rock face and camping
around the base is allowed.
