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.

At the elevation of 2,260m, its the highest mountain pass of North Africa. Half the year around its may have snowfall, sadly this year there was none. When we got out at Col Du Tichka, it was very chilly and windy. Amazing picturesque view all...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Guys, we will be travelling to Marrakech pretty soon and would like to visit Tizi n Tichka (we are renting a car). Could anybody please suggest a plan for the day for this visit? Am I right to say this will be too tight to go to Ait Benhaddou the same day and back? Please also let me know if there is anywhere to eat while on this drive or a picnic basket is a must to take with us? Massive thanks in advance!

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 !
