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

This is a must for any enthusiast driver, the road is astonishing with long ascent and spectacular curves, sadly it is not in the best condition right now but it is worked on and should be better soon.

Driving through the Atlas Mountains was amazing. The roads are narrow and at times scary! The view make up for it though. Simply stunning. It takes your breath away. Great for photographers.

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 !
