Monkey’s Hands, Dadès Gorge (Morocco)


On our way to the overlook that looks down on the Dadès Gorge, we went past a wondrous formation called Monkey’s Hands or Monkey’s Fingers. It’s as if the hillsides met a giant scrambler some time in the past. These iron-rich and soft sedimentary layers eroded over time to produce these strange and convoluted rocks.
