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 just drove thru this pass south to north and there is alot of construction which I guess has removed all the switchbacks. We did drive the back road from Ait Benhaddou so not sure if we missed the switchbacks prior to getting back on...More

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

You'll pass through Tichka on your way to Ourzazate, whether it be by car, bus, motorcycle or foot. When I last went through it was undergoing heavy repair and roadworks, so be prepared for terrible signage, semi trailers roaring down the mountains at you, gravel...More

The drive to get you here plus being here is beautiful! Made by nature and totally untouched by man! Reminded me of Petra.

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 !
