Lac de Tislit

A difficult road to Lac de Tislit in Morocco

Lac de Tislit is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 2.270m (7,447ft) above the sea level located on the border between Béni Mellal and Midelt provinces of central Morocco.

Set high in the High Atlas, within the Haut Atlas Oriental National Park, the road to the lake is mostly paved, with a short unpaved section, very demanding, with dangerous drop offs. It’s called R317. Don’t stuff your belly too much. Eventually, you might feel vomiting temptations while climbing circuitous roads at higher altitudes.

It’s a real challenging road and a true test of your vehicle and your stamina because the road abounds in twists and turns. The road to the lake is 30.5 km long, running north-south from Ouaourioud (Béni Mellal Province) to Imilchil (in Midelt Province). A minor gravel road north of the lake climbs up to Lac d’Isli, a crater lake at an elevation of 2.313m (7,588ft) above the sea level.
