We enjoyed this scenic drive from Ouarzazate to Marrakech. We started our journey in the desert, passing many Kasbah along the way followed by winding roads thru the Atlas Mountains. Tizi n Tichka is the highest point along the road. We stopped at a restaurant...More

New road works are going to change this experience travelling from Ouarzazate to Marrakech for ever, sadly. The slow winding road allowed travellers to gain a real appreciation of the changing landscape that one was travelling through. The fertile valley contrasts markedly with the aridity...More

We went past Tizi n Tichka, the pass through the Atlas Mountains from Marrakech near Ouarzazate. The view is better in several places on either side of the pass. There are a couple businesses to stop at while there.

If you like beautiful scenery and winding roads, this is for you. Ther area is completely barren except for the area watered by the river forming a long oasis running through the valley floor

Rock mountain scenarios, plus green areas that suddenly appears, and water presence that you do not expect is an amazing combination that make so unique this environment that you are willing to explore further.

The actual pass is not so beautifull but it is the whole experience of going over the High Atlas. There are better views and gorges in Morocco, especially the roads. But it is a good trip and from Marrakesh a good way to start the...More

The new parts of the road over this pass deserve a five star rating and the bad parts deserve a one star rating. The view, when it is not raining, snowing, or fogged in, is terrific. There is a LOT of construction going on, so...More

A great road if you like driving in the mountains. They are working on improvement of the road, so'll you'll meet some construction work. But the new road make the driving experience even better.
