    Todra Gorge Practicalitites

    by amsterdam_vallon Written Feb 29, 2004
    On the other side of the Todra Gorge

    Favorite thing: HOTELS AND ALTERNATIVES
    From the point where you come to the entrance of the gorge, and even through the gorge, there are a number of charming hotels. None offer much in terms of luxury, but the dramatic nature would make that unnatural. Still, value for money is good, and even when some of the hotels fills up with package tourists, other hotels will have spare rooms.

    RESTAURANTS AND ALTERNATIVES
    Eat in the hotels, and once again value for money is good. But the presentation is simple and the variety is limited.

    NIGHTLIFE
    Nothing.

    CHANGE MONEY
    Nothing. Do this in Tinerhir just 5 km south.

    TRANSPORT
    As long as you have made it to Tinerhir, you actually could do well without motorized transportation. There is a new great for every 100 meters you pass. But this would mean that most of one long day would be used in the region. If you are short on time, arrange for a return taxi from Tinerhir.

    IMPORTANT
    The best time for visiting between 8.00 and 13.00, as the angle and the low sun in the afternoons make it difficult to shoot great photos.

    Tinerhir Practicalities

    Tinerhir

    Favorite thing: HOTELS AND ALTERNATIVES
    Considering its remoteness, Tinerhir comes with an impressive range of hotels. They cover every standard from basic but proper to near-luxury. Value for money is normal, and there is really not need to book room in advance. All hotels lie in town centre, only the local camping ground is a bit out of town.

    RESTAURANTS AND ALTERNATIVES
    Almost as good as for hotels. There are many options, but it is generally little to gain by visiting the most expensive hotel restaurants.

    NIGHTLIFE
    The two hotels have bars, but only the one at Hotel Kenzi Bougafer is open to non-residents.

    CHANGE MONEY
    No problem, banks will give you every service, as well as the reception in the best hotels.

    TRANSPORT
    Good connections in either western (Ouarzazate) or eastern (Er Rachidia) directions. You can choose between buses or grand taxis. Neither offer much in terms of comfort, and due to the distances, it could be a good idea to buy two seats in order to get more space.
    In order to get to Todra Gorge, you will either have to arrange your own transportation (hire car (expensive) or hire a taxi) or join one of the guided trips (cheapest).
    If you want to head into the Sarhro Mountains, note that the roads are to bad for most normal vehicles. Renting your own 4x4 or joining a guided tour is the best for most. You could convince a taxi driver to take you some of the road, and then walk into the mountains on your own. If you do, you should be well experienced with hiking in mountains, equipped with a good map, a compass, provisions and a sleeping bag ý or bring a guide and follow his instructions.
