How To Travel The Road from Oussertek to Oukaimeden
Located in Al Haouz Province of the Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz region of Morocco, the road from Oussertek to Oukaimeden is a very challenging drive. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
Set high in the High Atlas Mountain, the road is totally unpaved. A 4x4 vehicle is required. This road offers jaw-dropping views, unparalleled freedom, and lots of fresh air. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery.
The road is 7km (4.34 miles) long running west-east from Oussertek to Oukaimeden and tops out at 2.690m (8,825ft) above the sea level. Hitting a 12% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps, and facing 24 hairpin turns, it’s not an easy drive.
