N9 road: Best driving road in Morocco

N9 road is considered among top driving roads in the world According to National Geographic. N9 road, Tizi n Tichka between Marrakech and Ouarzazate, is a road through Atlas Mounatins that offer amazing scenery with several twists and turns around mountains. Small Berber quant towns add a unique feel to the area. It is worth it to drive slowley and stop once in awhile to enjoy natural beauty of of Atlas Mountains. Around Telouet , the road is a bit bumpy and narrow before decending toward Ouarzazate. Once around Ouarzazate, don’t hesitate to stop by Ait Benhaddou ( a UNESCO world heritage site). Also, some great scenery of the Dades and Todra Gorges in the way to Mhamid, a small village in Zagora region, the beginning of Moroccan desert. Travel time between Marrakesh and Mhamid is 8 hours, and 5 hours from Ouarzazate.

Due to snow or rain during winter seasons, N9 road can be closed or become dangerous, heavy clouds and mist often reduce vision.  ( see Traveling in Morocco by bus, if you are not planning to drive in Morocco)

Re: Couscous: A Moroccan Tradition
Scott, Your blog bought back some nostalgic memories for me. When I go traveling, its all about the food and the memories that are triggered when I try and re-create a dish i stumbled upon on my travels(without much success).

It was just the other night that I was paging through my album, the photos depicting the utter chaos of the market streets and the beautiful colors on display. It was a visual spectacle. The food was a gastronomic spectacle. My personal favorite dish while visiting Morocco was the lamb tagine with dates. The tenderness of the lamb coupled with the sweetness of the dates was a mere delight and surprise to my palate. Thank you for helping me relive my Morocco experience. Morocco is a must-see travel destination and for more information visit www.essentialtravel.co.uk/magazine/country-guides/morocco/travel-to-morocco.asp for some great travel tips and facts about Morocco.
