Gorges Dades

The Dades gorges are gorges located in the upper Dades valley between the localities of Boumalne Dadès and M'semrir and a popular tourist destination. The gorges are originally formed by sedimentary rocks deposited in the marine environment over a long period, from Jurassic to Eocene. Then these rocks were exposed during the Oligocene alpine orogeny. Dades was formed during the uprising; it has thus sunk by way of antecedence in the rocks which were pushed upwards, digging gorges in the marls, sandstones or limestones.

Merzouga

Merzouga is a small Moroccan town located in the Sahara desert, near the Algerian border. Merzouga opens on Erg Chebbi, an immense expanse of sand dunes north of the city. To the west is Dayet Srji, a seasonal salt lake, often dry in summer.
