Inserted: 27.10.2014

The mountains open at the end of Todra gorge and river valley spreads out considerably into flat desert countryside. All the surroundings of the river are covered with thousands of date palms. The slopes above the oasis are relatively densely populated. The biggest of the surrounding villages and towns is Tineghir situated at the crossroads. There are several beautiful outlook places of this scenery by the road, which are definitely worth a stop.  

End of Todra gorge

End of Todra gorge is lined by the lower mountain ridge. Behind it already begins oasis with tens of thousands of palm trees.

Palm forest

The oasis is more than five hundred meters wide and more than ten kilometers long. Except for date palms, there are also small fields.

Amazing views of the oasis

The road R703 leads farther along the northern edge of the upland desert plains at nearly a hundred meters above the oasis. Before the twist, before the road drops into the valley bottom, is another great outlook place, from where is visible how the oasis stretches up to the horizon.

Opposite Douar Ait Boujane

The road leads on already through the valley bottom, but you will still come across one nice outlook place before Tineghir overlooking small town of Douar Ait Boujane lying on the other side of the oasis.
