Gorges de l'Assif Melloul

Gorges de l'Assif Melloul

Gorges de l'Assif Melloul is a gorge of the Assif Melloul  ‘the white river’ and lies in the Midelt Province of central Morocco, in the Atlas Mountains. Only the suicidal, the insane, or the paid-to-do-this should ever drive down. One mistake and it's a free fall to your death.

The track is gravel. Only 4x4 vehicles. The road is in dreadful condition and requires strong nerves to negotiate it. It’s certainly breathtaking and it has a fearsome reputation. It still remains an adrenaline-pumping journey and is definitely not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs. Words can’t describe the road and pictures don’t do it justice.
The track is +/- 15Km long starting in Imilchil, a small town in Midelt Province of central Morocco, in the Atlas Mountains at an elevation of 2.119m above the sea level. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides.

It’s a difficult but beautiful track, often impassable in winter. The most difficult part of the track is located between Anergui and Tilouguite. The road, bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails, is difficult and a nightmare in the wet or dark (or both). There is little room for error on this road.
