Todra Gorge (Gorges du Todra) is situated on the remote east side of the High Atlas mountains in Morocco. Both the Todra and neighbouring Dades Rivers have carved out cliff-sided canyons (Arabic: wadi) on their final 40km through the mountains. The final 600m of the Todra gorge are the most spectacular as the the canyon narrows to a flat stony track as little as 10m wide in places with sheer and smooth rock walls up to 300m high on each side. The tiny glacier stream is something of a misfit and the river which once filled the gorge can only be imagined. Its remoteness and a lack of public transport means it is only reached by determined tourists and increasing numbers of climbers.
