Todra Gorge

Located in the High Atlas mountain area of Morocco, Todra Gorge and the city of Tinghir create a desert oasis when glimpsed from a far.

Tourists are able to explore the gorge and city which looks like a pretty awesome thing to do – however my group didn’t actually stop in to the gorge itself.

Instead our guide offered to take us on an early morning hike from the small town we were staying at nearby.

The scenery was lovely – plus there wasn’t a soul around as he took us through orchards..

And although not inside the popular gorge itself some pretty fantastic views were obtained, which seemed to stretch on for miles.

This was truly a picturesque region of the country and taking some time out to explore the mountains by foot is well worth the effort!
