Great place to visit, but you will either need a car or a lot of time to explore it. Views are definitely breathtaking!

The Todra Gorge is worth the visit to park and walk along the stream and marvel at how waters carved out this deep gorge over the years. Allow 20-30 minutes tops. There are vendors and guys with arm loads of jewelry and scarves that walk...More

Hi there, I just know that there is an asphalt route through Dades gorge. So no problem driving through. If you have nerves of steel you can drive. In Marrakesh I would rather just sit and watch than drive. The traffic is... More
