In our hired car, we travelled over from tafraoute (30 minutes or so). The roads were a bit hairy - however if you drove from agadir to tafraoute then it'll be a breeze! The place was breathtaking and peaceful. There is adequate parking just after the first restaurant sign on the left (although the restaurant itself was not open). We... More

Spent the day cycling down the gorges, very much enjoyed myself! You'd want to fairly physically fit to cycle it (I was touring so doing 100km a day on a bike) but it is a beautiful place to visit

Interesting curly road to the Mansour. Very tight not many places to stop. Not many tourists so people look at you strange. I think one of this kind in Morocco.

Beatiful located valley full of palm trees in a fairytale land. Along the way you will go through the Tafraoute super trip. Before turning on painted rocks starts a road full of switchbacks and views of the hot landscape, paradise for experienced cyclists. All the way up the Ait Mansour is asphalted. In Tafraoute just opposite the restaurant Kasbah is... More

The gorge was amazing. The contrast between barren hills and lush groves was spectacular. We went to the gorge on our own - without a guide or hired vehicle. If you're independently minded and on a budget this is totally possible. We caught the midday mini-bus from tafraoute to the gorge. We stayed the night at Auberge Sahnoun which was... More

All the rental cars in Tafraoute were booked, so we arranged for taxi driver to take us to the Mansour gorge. Our hostess, who spoke Berber negotiated with the driver for the fee of 300 DH, which would be similar to rent a car for one day. This was the last week of March, and it was a surprise to... More

Dramatic, oasis-filled gorges. Shame about the inevitable plastic festoons in the river bed debris. Wild semi-offroading experience if you do the full loop, down one gorge and back up the next!
