Day 9 – Mountains

Tuesday 9th April.

Today’s journey consisted of tarmac and then onto a stunning mountain trail which took us 8000 ft. into the Black Mountains. The views were truly breathtaking especially as we drove through the moonscape of gravel, stone and down into a forgotten valley full of palm trees and small communities.

It is safe to say that my words will not be sufficient to describe the seen so I have added a few pictures.

Finally the journey ended by travelling through the Todra Gorge just north of Tineghir. This colossal gorge would dwarf anything to be found back home. As you drive through you can see the caves dotted about in the cliff walls; sometimes you see movement and can spot those that are still occupied.
