Drove from Ait Ben Haddou to Imlil. Definitely not as scary as the pictures make it look. Narrow road, but pretty well constructed.The road is also being widened in quite a few portions. Very scenic. There are also a few quaint road side shops where...More

Travelling to Marrakesh in campervan, we went through this pass. Very winding and lots of very heavy lorrys in the road. They are renewing this road, which are the good bits, but some are gravelled and potholed, it took quite a time to travel this...More

I saw Tizi n Tichka as part of the Sahara tour, its very unique road. Quick stop on the top will give you an amazing view from this curvy road.

We did this on motorcycles and it was a stunning ride with magnificent scenery! Allow enough time for this pass and the beautiful views.

We had the luck to go through that pass after a snowstorm. Magnificent landscapes, and still a very safe road

The pass has something like 360 switchbacks (per our driver), so I spent a good bit of time with my hands over my eyes, but it really is beautiful (over 7000 feet at the top). They are working to widen the road, which will make...More

Add 20% to the time estimated by Google maps. It’s a very pretty drive even if the desert haze blocks some of the view. The high pass is undergoing major reconstruction on the Marrakech side and threading all the manic traffic through the middle of...More

We travelled from Ouarzazate to Marrakech in a 4X4 van. The trip took us through the mountain pass and over High Atlas with its high rugged mountain terrain and sweeping valleys. The scenery was nothing short of spectacular, the natural landscape of massive rocks threw...More

The trip through to Ouarzazate from Marrakech takes in this pass and some of the scenery is breathtaking. It's slow (don't expect to go any more than 20mph). The people selling local quartz and fossils know all the good view points and can be a...More

Main road is wide enough. On the south side there an alternate road (P1506) that is pretty scenic but impressive if you are scared of heights. It goes through Ait Benhaddou that I highly recommend though. Make sure you make... More

Dia duit, Les 2 sites sont incontournables et sont parfaitement faisables dans la même journée. A Ait Benhaddou il y a quelques restaurants typiques qui sont très bien. Have a good trip !
