This gorge gives added meaning to the word "gorgeous"; it is really well worth your time to go out of your way to see it. The only down side was the tour company I booked; Morocco Expert Tours turned out to be a disaster and made the experience less pleasant!

The "Dades" is a another must visit location for visitors to Morocco. Visitors will get a sense of the real rural Berber region and how life is and was for the people.

The gorge was interesting to see but is anticlimactic if you've been to the Grand Canyon or anywhere similar.

This place is really amazing. You see so many landscapes buy going there you can't imagine. The green vallyes, flat hills, various rocky formations, the spiral road - driving it is and experience on it's own. Not jaw dropping but a place you want see.

Impressive! This drive took us through the impressive gorges and valleys that sometimes are wide and then become extremely tight. Beautiful traditional buildings and authentic towns and villages dot this landscape. The road is in good condition.

A scenic road leads to the gorges, who on itself are nice but we were not that impressed. Still a good rating, because the area around the gorges is so beautiful. Perfect for walking, you can hire a guide at hotel berbere de la montagne for a 3 hour walk. You will see fossils and crystals along the way.

Over 30km of amazing scenery - pure movie material. Perfect for trekking or just slow car ride with frequent stops for photos.

The Gorges du Dades is impressive, although the road through it, with cement border, does not help the pictures. Continue the road up, until the junction with piste 3444, for more extraordinary canyon views.
