THE ROUTE

ELLE (UK) - - Explore -

BLASTED OUT OF THE AT­LAS MOUN­TAINS, the

Tizi n Test pass is the high point (in both senses) of the scenic 225km route be­tween Taroudant and Marrakech. It can be hair-rais­ing in parts, but that all adds to the ad­ven­ture. You’ll look down on ea­gles swoop­ing over plains, pass crum­bling kas­bahs and mud-brick Ber­ber vil­lages with women swathed in colour­ful tex­tiles. Watch as the land­scape changes from cedar trees to cacti, and feel the awe­some mass of the loom­ing moun­tain­side. And make sure to set off early: it’s nerveshred­ding af­ter dark.
