Tinghir Jun 29, 2011
Tinghir or Tinerhir (old), located in east-central Morocco, at the end of the High Atlas and Jebel Saghro face, was part of the province of Ouarzazate to 2009 and is from the capital of the province of Tinghir (with Boumalne, Kelaat M'Gouna Assoul, and Achbarou Alnif).

The name of Tin-Ghir originally designated place (tin) of the mountain "Ighir" (shoulder Tamazight), Berber Muslim village in the center of the oasis Todra. The city proper of Tineghir (Municipality of Tinghir) has 36 000 inhabitants while the oasis as a whole accounts for 86 500 inhabitants according to the 2004 census. Tineghir, as the region of Ouarzazate, is populated by Amazigh or "Berber."

At the end of the Todra Gorge, the river makes its difficult passage on the southern slopes of the High Atlas (Tizgui) and opens into the great plain between the region of Ouarzazate to Tafilalt to snake about twenty miles to Oued Ferkla.

The palm Todgha, very dense and extensive, consists only of two banks of the Oued Todra and is irrigated by a network of pipes called Berber tirgwin (sg targa). Absorbed by a large number of irrigation canals, water does not usually until Ferkla, a tributary of Ghera, except during high floods.
