Tizi el Fougani

Tizi el Fougani: this road is not for timid drivers

Tizi el Fougani is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.999m (9,839ft) above the sea level, located in the High Atlas mountain range, in the Drâa-Tafilalet region of Morocco. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Morocco. 

The road to the summit, also known as Tizi-n-Ait Hamed, is gravel. It’s very narrow and steep. In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. The road goes through a dramatic gorge and the climb is unrelenting. Endless hairpins carry the gently graded piste higher and higher. Only 4x4 vehicles. At the summit there’s a radio transmitter. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime. High winds are common.
