On our return from Merzouga we got to stop (briefly) at the Todra Gorge. It's stunning and gorgeous and we want to spend more time there and in the entire region. I'm nearing the end of my trip (sniff, sniff) and will write out the whole itinerary, with potential routes and places to stay, when I'm back in the US next week. I will also show you some incredible date palm oases!
In the meantime, take a look at the staggering heights of the gorge.
