A drive from Marrakech to Essaouira can take as little as two hours, but the option that heads south across the Atlas Mountains, though some of the country's more impressive desert scenery, up to these snow capped sky scrapers, and along the ridges that finish in deep valleys or hidden oases is much more pleasurable. The Tizi Test Pass is the highest point, and from it you can see the lush valleys and gorges all around, as well as the pale and rust Berber villages that you can stay in over your trip. Travellers can pass along the edge of the Sahara at Tiznit before heading back around to the coast at Essaouira.
