the world's most spectacular roads

R107 is the name of the sharply winding and precipitous ascent in a steep and narrow zig-zag road in the region of Tafraoute, in the central part of the Anti-Atlas mountains in Morocco.

The road is 95.0 km long and links the towns of El Kasba and Tafraout. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides. Your wheels will be astounded at the wonderful views of the mountains spread out before you! They are terrible for drivers who are prone to vertigo.

  

The surface of the road is gravel with loose rocks. It climbs up to Canyon de l'Assif n'Mouguene, (the "Grand Canyon of Morocco") and then descends to the Gorges and the Oasis of Igmir.  In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails.  There is little room for error on this road. It's normal for your palms to sweat looking at those photos.
