Best place to hike!
Feb 2020
Todra Gorge is a lovely stop along the route to the Sahara desert. We enjoyed the beauty scenery of nature: The canyon, river and escape of the Mountain goats were amazing to see. This place would be a rock climber's dream for everyone. We were hassled a bit by the many vendors selling their wares everywhere, but that is life in this part of the world.

The views are fantastic and the stars at night are really vivid. Rock climbing and hiking here is also perfect.

An Impressive and Picturesque "Must See"
Jan 2020
This was my second visit to the Todgha Gorge. On my first visit, several years ago, I was quite sick and it was about all I could do to get off the tour bus, look around, take a number of pictures, and get back on. Other than those pictures I really do not have many memories of the visit.

This trip was different. I was feeling great and set out to walk the length of this section of the gorge.

There were a number of tourists in the gorge, but since it was January, there were fewer than when I was there the last time (in April). Unfortunately there were no rock climbers ;(. Being Morocco, where there are tourists there are souvenir hawkers and others hoping to separate us from some cash. One of the more picturesque was a older Berber gentleman with a long suffering donkey. I probably tipped him more than necessary for the picture I took. However in retrospect since the coronavirus pandemic would start six weeks later, I have no regrets and I hope he made good use of the money.

I walked the length of the gorge. Approaching the end, I realized that the riverbed beside the road had dried up! Turning back, I paid attention to the river. About a third of the way back I discovered that the source of the river was an artesian spring near a cluster of buildings on the far bank. I was told that while this spring provided a continual source of water for the river, heavy rains up in the mountains would cause the river to rise significantly and cover the road. In the narrowest passages the water would go quite a ways up the sides.

For me, the Todgha Gorge was definitely worth a second visit. For an outstanding example of the power of water over rock, it is a must see.

But our day was misty and the start of the COVID-19 scare, so very few people. Some rock climbers ... interesting to watch.

Interestingly Busy

A beautiful relief from somewhat plain scenery, but very busy in the popular tourist places. Would have liked to have spent more time walking through the gorge. Was hassled a bit by the many vendors selling their wares everywhere, but that is life in this part of the world.

Beautiful and dramatic scenery

This reminded us a lot of the U.S. southwest. Dramatic cliffs. Nice stream. Walk along the road to get a good feel of the place. Lots of tourist buses.

Interesting and busy with tourists
Nov 2019
We travelled here as part of our tour of the country. Our driver dropped us off and we walked up through steep sided gorge, 300 feet high alongside a river whose source was bubbling through the gravel at the side of the road. We wandered about for a while then met up with our driver again and went into the nearby town for lunch in a tourist restaurant. We took lots of photos and there were also many traders at the side of the road wanting to separate us from our cash.
