Marrakesh – Taroudant, via Tizi n’Test (225km)

This is the last time I cross the Atlas mountains.

This route I took via Taroudant is a mountain road and much longer, for some people it doesn’t make sense because there is a direct national road connecting Marrakesh to Agadir. Well~ Traveling by bicycle also doesn’t make sense in some way~ I have crossed quite many mountain passes in Morocco, Tizi n’Test is the most impressive among them, and the climbing experience is the most dramatic. I stayed in the Hotel at the pass at the New Year’s Eve. Stars were showing up after Dusk, the dim lights of village merged with the stars, I couldn’t even recognize where was sky, where was land and celebrated the 2017 new year in a completely silence night. .....

 Telouet – Marrakesh, via Tizi n’Tichka (134km)

Road condition is getting worse after Telouet, there are many holes on this disrepair road, and only very small vehicles are able to pass. I planed to reach Marrakesh in one day, so I started before sunrise, the sun started rising when I was on the road and its warm sunlight bought me a vital morning. ..... See More

Touring Morocco by Bicycle

I have travelled by bicycle in more than a dozen countries. Several places are my favorite ones, Taiwan for its easy-going atmosphere, Mongolia for its vastness, Kyrgyzstan for its beautiful nature, and Uzbekistan for its historical monuments and people’s hospitality. After spending more than three months in Morocco, I found it has all elements of these places. ..... See More

Marrakesh – Taroudant,via Tizi n’Test(225 公里)

終於,是最後一次翻過Altas山脈了。由Marrakesh往Agadir,這不是必經之路,繞道而行是常理,不過,踩單車旅行本身可能就不算「常理」吧。在摩洛哥,翻過好多過山口,Tizi n’Test 是當中風景最震撼的,翻山的過程也最富戲劇性。在山口的旅館留宿,除夕晚上的黃昏後天空漸暗,繁星開始閃耀,遠方小鎮的微弱燈光也慢慢成了點點星光,分不清那是天那是地,在一片寂靜中踏入新的一年。 ..... See More

離開Telouet往窄谷進發,路況變差,日久失修的石屎路破破爛爛的,路上只有開得緩慢的小貨車。因為打算一天踩抵Marrakesh,天未光就出發,雖然風景一般,但途中太陽緩緩升起,温暖的陽光照到身上,是個令人感到生機勃勃的早晨。 ..... See More
