Tizi n'Tichka (Tashelhit:ⵜⵉⵣⵉ ⵏ ⵜⵉⵛⴽⴰ, Tizi, mountain pass; Išqqa, difficult).[1] is a mountain pass in Morocco, linking the south-east of Marrakesh to the city of Ouarzazate through the High Atlas mountains. It lies between the great Marrakech Plains and the gateway of the Sahara Desert. From November - March, snow can often fall on the pass, but it can be warm all year round in the strong sun.[2] It reaches an altitude of 2260 m above the sea level and is the highest major mountain pass of North Africa.
