R703 is a scenic high mountain road located in the eastern part of the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco.
The road is 83.2km (51.69 miles) long. It’s pretty spectacular in parts, running through Todra Gorges (subject to flooding) and climbing up to Tizi-n-Tirherhouzine, a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.675m (8,776ft) above the sea level (subject to winter closures). The gorge requires a careful driving (water flows over the road) in the rain.
The road was totally paved in 2014. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. It runs south-north from R317 Road (near Agoudal, a small mountain town at an elevation of 2.300m/7,545ft above the sea level) towards N10 Road (near Tinghir, also known as Tinerhir, a city in the region of Tinghir, south of the High Atlas)
