After breakfast we set off in a westerly direction through the small town of M’sisi to Alnif where we refuel and stop for a drink, then turn northwards and head for one of Morocco’s premiere tourist attractions – The Todra Gorge.
The 14km of winding road into the gorge from the town of Tinghir takes us through many small villages, with several panoramic view points where you can stop to take photos and admire all the cultivation in the palmeraie (Oasis) below. The Palmeraie stretches some 20km from Tinghir to the gorge.
The road narrows until, crossing the river we enter the mouth of the gorge itself. Just before entering the gorge we will park up at a small cafe and have a snack lunch.
The Todra river which runs through this geological fault has formed 300m (985ft) high walls while being only 40m wide at its base and is one of the top rock climbing destinations of the world.
Leaving, we wind our way back down to the town and then a further 50kms will get us to this night’s accommodation in the town of Dades.
Tonight we will stay in a very special 4* hotel.
It has a rooftop pool with a heated jacuzzi incorporated in it; spa facilities and massages can also be arranged! Wonderful buffets to choose from for both dinner and tomorrows breakfast.
