From Tinghir, a great asphalt way leads up the valley to the Gorges. Then we continue to the Sahara Desert.
We'll arrive at the Todra Gorges after a few stops. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Locals live in the area and are visible in their adobe villages. These Gorges are famous among rock climbers due to their rock sides with many uneven surfaces. Relish a short walk through the Todra Gorges.

Many fossils and minerals are situated and worked into beautiful furniture items and decorations.
