Tinghir is a desert oasis located halfway along the Kasbah Road between Ouarzazade and Errachidia. The oasis is 30 kilometers long and 4 kilometers wide, with date palms and olive groves spreading out around the rich Todra River, which collects water from the rainy season. Tinghir, which has developed as a trading post thanks to the benefits of the river, offers a wonderful view of the traditional sun-dried brick town and its greenery.
The High Atlas is a major mountain range that crosses Morocco, from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the Algerian border in the east. Bordered by the mountains, ancient cities flourish in the north, and a world of deserts and oases spreads out in the south. As you move eastward from the western alpine zone, where Mount Toubkal, the highest peak at 4,167 meters above sea level, is located, the forest diminishes and the dry rocky desert spreads out. The beautiful valleys and Berber villages that emerge from the rugged nature are full of attractions, and the drive from the city through the mountains to the desert is very popular.
