Deep cut into the mountain

Todra Gorge, Morocco

The Todra Gorge is clearly among the most dramatic sights you can get across in Morocco. The cut through the mountain gives at some points only a 10 metre wide passage beneath 300 metre tall walls.
Sun only accesses the bottom of the gorge, where a ice-cold river flushes through, in the morning. Later in the night the gorge gets its own climate, and while evenings are damp and warm in the nearest village, they easily get to be freezing here.
Join us while we walk through the less than 600 metres of the gorge, until we meet the clearing on the other side.
