Gorges du Dades, Boumalne Dades

#1 of 19 in Nature in Souss-Massa-Draa Region
Gorges du Dades is a striking river-cut gorge with a diverse set of attractions to see along its length. Flowing from the High Atlas Mountains, the river has cut out an impressive landscape of cliffs and rock formations here, while also helping patches of fertile land stay rich in greenery throughout the year, supporting gardens of almond, poplar, and walnut trees. Many small, traditional towns have developed near the gorge, close to the banks of the river. Drive through the canyon to see the rural settlements and dramatic natural scenery--the road gets notoriously unpredictable during one particular, and particularly popular, ascent, so take care with the hairpin bends.

  • After climbing this road in a yaw, one reaches a dizzying point of view. The road is beautiful and impressive but before you go to the point of view, a detour into the fingers of monkeys is just as worth it. The hike is accessible even at least sporty, feeling of solitude assured!

  • This Valley offers striking colors the road has many curves, but at the end of the route you enjoy a beautiful panoramic view. Beautiful contrasts of colors, red and brown from the mountains and intense green of the surrounding vegetation. Ideal for taking photos or as a bike route.
