Tizi-n'Ouano is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.910m (9,547ft) above the sea level, located in Drâa-Tafilalet region of central Morocco, in the Atlas Mountains. It’s one of the highest roads of Morocco.
The pass is traversed by the R704, a snaking tarmac road. Coming from south, the last 25 km to the pass are really unpaved. It’s a dirt road, sweeping slippery, hard gravel. Beyond the pass, the road is completely unsurfaced. This road is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. The last village is located about 20 km south of the pass. 15 km before the pass there is a restaurant.
