Tizi n’Merzidhi

Tizi n’Merzidhi

Tizi n’Merzidhi is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.770m (9,087ft) above the se level, located in Khénifra province in the Moroccan region of Béni Mellal-Khénifra. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of the country.

The road to the summit, located in the high plains between the Middle Atlas and High Atlas mountain ranges is gravel. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. The ride is rather remote, so you need to be prepared. In case of a breakdown, there is very little in the way of passing traffic or inhabitants around, and no cell phone service in parts. Menacing desert terrain with numerous steep, rocky climbs. Large, sharp rocks require tight maneuvering, increasing the likelihood of tire damage. High clearance, skid plates and differential lockers required. No stock vehicles. A complex network of poorly defined roads makes route-finding very difficult, even following a GPS tracklog. Very hot in summer. Carry plenty of water. Never drive this trail alone.
