the world's most spectacular roads

 

Tizi-n'Ouadi pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.934m (9,625 ft) above the sea lvel, located in the High Atlas Mountains near Jebel Toubkal. It’s one of the highest mountain passes of Morocco.

The road to the summit starts asphalted in the Oukaïmeden ski resort, but turns into gravel and sand suddenly. The road still remains an adrenaline-pumping journey and is definitely not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs.  It’s a 4x4 track, but some pics show 2wd cars near the summit. There are 7 hairpin turns.

 

There are 2 routes to reach the summit. Starting from Ourika River Valley, the ascent is 35.61 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 1.911 heightmeters. The average percentage is 5.3 % and the maximum slope is 15 %. And starting from Ourika Valley, the  ascent is 36.85 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 1.945 heightmeters.
