Todra Gorges:

Todra Gorges are In the mountainous region of the High Atlas when you reach the city of Tinghir, in which the Todra River rips through the mountains making room for a canyon with 300m high walls. The region is incredibly beautiful and there is also a natural magical touch. Besides, the sunlight when hitting the rocks brings a different colour tone every hour of the day. Also, making the place have different shades as long as there is the sun!. Then, when visiting the site you can see the Berber population taking care of animals, selling handicrafts and guiding tourists. Also, the region is very popular for those who like to rappel, risking more radical tourism. Have you ever thought about venturing?
Merzouga is a small village in the Sahara Desert in southeastern Morocco about 55 km from Erfoud and about 50 km from the Algerian border. Shape-shifting over 28km from north to south and reaching heights of 350m. Then, the great sand sea of Erg Chebbi is extraordinarily scenic. In addition, the rose-gold dunes rise dramatically above a pancake-flat, grey hamada (hard-packed rocky desert) and turn stunning shades of orange. Pink and purple as the sun sets or rises. driving a quad bike or buggy to take you to the dunes 1 hour before sunrise.
