Hike in the Dades Valley


In the Dades Valley (or Dades Wadi), gorges and canyons follow one another along the Dades River, between the High Atlas Mountain range and the Gebel Saghro summit. This area has evolved over the centuries, giving its rocks their present-day appearance. Be sure to hike this arid region and explore its red rocky ravines.

Next, hike the paths that line the cliffs of Tamlalt, nicknamed "the Monkey Fingers." Take in the unparalleled landscape as you walk among rounded ocher rocks. Travelers who enjoy both culture and adventure can journey through the region’s Berber villages. Traditional houses sometimes merge with the rock in these green oases in the middle of the rocky valley.

For experienced walkers, our local agencies organize treks of several days in the Dades Gorge. Experience a unique hike that will take you through varied terrains, lush palm groves, and desert panoramas.
