Le Col de Tizi N’Test

  • Valley

Located west of Mount Toubkal, on the R 203 road connecting Marrakech to Taroudant, the Col de Tizi N’Testi s one of the three major routes into southern Morocco. Standing at an elevation of 2,100 meters, this challenging mountain pass has played a significant role in Morocco’s history, serving as a strategic point that could be easily controlled by the mountain-dwelling populations. Today, the road offers a fabulous tourist detour, as it winds its way endlessly along the mountainside, defying the steep slopes of the massif. The landscapes are breathtaking! Once at the pass, the views are unrivaled: to the north, the high N’Fiss Valley and the Goundafa region; to the south, 2,000 meters below, the Souss Valley and plain contrasting with the silhouette of the Western Anti-Atlas.Â
