Tizi n' Tamatert is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.358m (7,736ft) above the sea level, located in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, in the Imenane valley.
The road to the summit, located within the High Atlas, the greatest mountain range of North Africa, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable in winters. From November to April there are varying amounts of snow. One of the most beautiful times of year to be in this region is when all the cherry and apple blossom is flowering: in April, and also in late Autumn when there are oranges and yellows as the leaves change and fall.
Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 recommended. The grade of route is fairly easy. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. The summit offers views of two valleys, down into the Imane Valley and back down to the Aït Mizane valley and overlooks Jbel Oukaimeden (3200m).
