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.
