Discover Tinghir & Todra Gorge

The Tinerhir oases and Todra Valley
The desert town of Tinghir is set amongst an extensive river oasis that features 30 miles (48 km) of palm trees. You can easily combine a visit to Tinghir with a bit of Todra Gorge exploration, as the two sit side-by-side. Many visitors opt to explore the duo when traveling between Merzouga and Marrakech or Merzouga and Fes.

The area surrounding Tinghir is one of the most scenic in Morocco. You can enjoy sprawling vistas of desert landscape revealing impressive buttes, mesas, and plateaus. And with its ancient and colorful Jewish quarter, Tinghir also offers a glimpse into ancestral Moroccan Jewry. You can visit Elhaj Ait Ali, the old Jewish quarter, and admire its interesting architecture.

After enjoying the town, head out to Todra Gorge, which sits at 984 feet (300 meters) high and features stunning red-stained limestone. Enjoy an easy walk through the gorge or relax in the cool, shallow water.
