What people say

"Tizi N'Tichka is a mountain pass in the High Atlas range of Morocco, known for its stunning views and important role as a gateway between Marrakech and the Sahara Desert. Historically, the pass has been a vital trade route, connecting the fertile plains of Marrakech with the desert regions to the south. It has also been an important cultural crossroads, with various civilizations leaving their mark on the landscape over the centuries. Visiting Tizi N'Tichka is an adventure in itself, with its winding roads and breathtaking vistas offering a glimpse into the rugged beauty of the Atlas Mountains. One of the highlights is driving through the pass, marveling at the towering peaks and deep valleys that stretch out as far as the eye can see. Along the way, you'll pass through traditional Berber villages, where you can stop and experience the warm hospitality of the locals. Whether you're admiring the natural beauty, learning about the history of the region, or simply enjoying the thrill of the journey, Tizi N'Tichka is a must-see destination for anyone exploring Morocco."
"We weren't able to squeeze Tizi n'Tichka in our first day as we had no sleep the night before and were exhausted to keep on driving. However, because our road trip around Morocco started in Ouarzazate airport and ended in the same place, we drove through Tizi n'Tichka on our way back. The views were insane and we even got some souvenirs from a lovely local man who spoke some incredible Spanish. If you come to Morocco this location is a MUST whether you do it on the first day or the last, is up to you!"
"In weaving your way over the Atlas Mountains (whether you drive or go by bus), you will get a little twisted and want to stop for a break. If you go by bus, you will stop in a small village with tourist shops, cafes, and a truck with an espresso machine in the back making amazing Moroccan coffee. If you look to stop on your own, there are many overlooks with cafes, shops, and lots of views. "
