Tizi-n-Tichka Pass:MOROCCO

The N9 highway ruNs from Marrakech south over the Atlas Mountains, crossing the country’s highest pass. On the other side, it then descends down to the town of Ouarzazate, considered to be the gateway to the Sahara. Along this route, you will come across some interesting sights, including the the kasbahs of Telouet and Aït Benhaddou. From start to finish, the route is 196 km (122 miles) on a good road. However, there are some meandering and tortuous stretches that demand careful driving; as a result, the journey invariably takes nearly four hours. Travellers preferring private transport can arrange for a grand taxi or hire a car. Alternatively, several Ouarzazate buses travel this route daily from Marrakech’s main bus station.
