Oct 17, 2007 - Tinerhir

Buses(3) from desert to Tinerhir, up at 7 am arrived at 2:30pm and fellow led us to Hotel de l'Avenir, very clean, mostly French(owned as well), served us tea right away even before we checked in. Journey by bus to here was thru flat flat land (black soil) interspersed with great oasies like settlements and ton's of date palms, lots of henna hand and feet tattooing... As soon as we could we went to taxi stand, but due to lateness(330) we opted to pay for a full(6 persons) taxi and get to the Todra Gorge before it would be too late to get a...

They definitely knew the meaning of the word location, as the site is situated on a slope with a great view and easy access to water, especially after the irrigation set-up was in place. We spent the next day taking a long drive to southern Morocco for our camel trek. The Sahara--as hot, windy, and forbidding as...

Sep 17, 2004 - Tinehir, Morocco

Tenerhir is a smallish town basically in the middle of nowhere. [I am very proud, this was the first time that we bargained the hotel price under what the guide book published, although we were nowhere as hard core as the 3 Italian girls with whom we shared a cab next day up to the gorge] There is a big gorge nearby called the Todra Gorge which is the city's main tourist draw. We decided to spend two days in the town so I could get over a cold I had caught (no doubt on the SARS plane). I was feeling a little better the next day and our room...
