The Dangerous Roads in Morroco Across the Atlas Mountain

The Dangerous Roads in Morocco Across the Atlas Mountain

Traveling through Morocco by car is a great way to see this diverse and beautiful country. But the roads in Morocco can be diabolical. We rent a car and take off from Marrakesh airport. Within 5 minutes we were lost having missed the un-signposted turn off to our destination. On entering the highway we were greeted with an overturned truck.

We journey over the High Atlas Mountains. A steep, winding and rugged road, the main danger is not the drop offs, or the wandering sheep, or even the overloaded trucks. The greatest danger were the Mercedes taxis that come hurtling at you from around every corner, horn blaring, speed limits ignored.
