While the option was on offer to rise before dawn for some more dune climbing to watch the sunrise everyone opted to stay in bed for as long as possible due to the intensely cold night.

It was then back on the Camel for a return trip to our staging point. The ride was more comfortable & just as sureal as yesterday but I can feel some muscles I never knew I had.

After a welcome breakfast we set off for a 3.5 hour drive to Todra Gorge. Todra is a massive trench that rises 250 metres forming one of the most dramatic and spectacular natural sights in Morocco and now a magnet for trekkers & rock climbers.

Along all the waterways were vast palm tree plantations that in turn shielded crops of olive, fig, almond and alfalfa. As soon as the water reached its limit the desert returned.

An early afternoon arrival at the Hotel Taboriht provided a welcome break from the hectic pace, hot shower, laundry internet etc.
