As it is in the vicinity of the town of Tinerhir, it is a very interesting site for the explorers of Morocco to see, since the Todha River, together with the neighboring Dades Rivers have carved out a unique canyons that are recognized around the world as one of the most gorgeous ones.

The rock walls are so high that they reach astonishing 152 meters (500 feet) altitude, and they are definitely one of the most interesting ones for rock climbers. In some parts pf the gorge, there is a small river that flows, however, the big river that formed the impressively beautiful site has dried up.
For now, the visitors are left to imagine the force that once was carving out the red rocks, forming what is today, even in a remote area, one of the most popular spots in Morocco. The town of Tinerhir is always accommodating those explorers willing enough to taste the local life of the Kingdom, nonetheless, it is also very friendly with those who are just passing by.
