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.

  • Beautiful place but is over crowded. It’s basically a stream that flows down the rocks. Can get some great pictures however
  • Nice valley along a winding road but overall not much to see. Wouldn’t go out of my way to come here
