Tafraout or spelled as Tafraoute or Tafrawt is very hard to be accessed. The roads to and from Tafraoute are very hard to traverse. Most of the roads are snakelike, mountainous, and narrow.

Before you can go to Tafraout you have to reach Tiznit first. It takes time about one hour. Then you would meet a left turning that would take you straight to Tafraout. From this left turning to Tafraout, the distance is 107 kilometers away. At the first 40 km, the road is good enough but maybe rather plain sailing. If you want to get the mountains, you have to pass the challenging road first. Even though the road is narrow, it can be accessed by two vehicles to pass it without any major problems. As I said before, the road is snakelike so you have to keep your attention. The climbing road commonly is unprotected. This journey can be very fascinating and create anxiety. However, once you arrived on Tafraout, you would meet great town as travel destination.
