the world's most spectacular roads

Tikjda pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1,600 metres (5,250 feet) above the sea level, located in the Djurdjura Mountains in northern Algeria, in the province of Bouïra

On the top of the mountain there’s a ski resort. The pass is traversed by the N33 road. The area around Tikjda is beautiful, with many peaks and hillsides covered with cedar forests. Tikjda offers many short excursions, with places like Point de vue du Djurdjura and Gouffre de l’Akouker. From the latter, virtually all of the Kabylia as well as the Mediterranean Sea can be spotted on clear days. If all this wasn’t enough, a small glacier can be found 3-4 km from Tikjda, the Takouatz Guerisséne. Around 10 km to the west of Tikjda, the lake of Goulmin is found, a sight worth this detour over and over again. 

 

The road is in dreadful condition and requires strong nerves to negotiate it. The four-season resort of Tikjda offers local and international visitors the opportunity to enjoy snow sports in the winter and a variety of activities in the summer months. Whereas Tikjda was at one time inaccessible due to unrest and terrorist activities, this now peaceful resort welcomes visitors to enjoy the natural beauty and tranquility of the surroundings. 

The surface of the road is asphalted, and chains or snow tyres can be required throughout the year.
