Departure from Ouarzazate in the morning to Tinghir (169 Km) via Skoura, Valley of Roses, Valley of the Dades. Lunch to Toudra Gorge In the eastern part of the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco, near the town of Tinerhir, the Todra and the Dades Rivers have carved out a narrow canyon called Todra Gorge (sometimes spelled Todgha Gorge), on their final 40 kilometers through the mountains. The gorge takes its most spectacular form about 15 km from Tinghir. Here, for about 600 meters, the canyon walls closes in to a mere 10 meters from each other, while the sheer and smooth rock walls rise up to 160 meters on each side. It is said that the gigantic rock walls magically change color as the day progresses. Continuation in the afternoon to Merzouga dunes to enjoy a beautiful sunset at the top of Erg Chebi and where you will do a camel trek in the desert of Morocco.
The dunes of Erg Chebbi reach a height of up to 150 meters in places and altogether it spans an area of 50 kilometers from north to south and up to 5–10 kilometers from east to west lining the Algerian border
Dinner and overnight in a berber camp in the middle of the dunes, where also you will have the chance to listen to the local music and enjoy the stars at night by just staying at the camp or walking a little bit in the dunes .
