Road from Foum Zgoud-Ait Hammoudou-Imzil-Agdz-ZagoraI cannot identifed what kind of road is from Foum to Zagora (on Google Earth). I will travel with camper (no 4x4). From Guelmin to Foum I expect quite good road but further I do not know if it is possible to drive. I am afraid that this road is mostly makadam to Agdz and up and down too, or I am wrong. I hope I am. Any sugestions and thanks for the help.

1From Foum Zguid - R111 and then R108 to Agdz and then to Zagora you can go by normal car, the road is paved.
But the piste about 10km north of Foum Zguid directly to Zagora is not paved. It is gravel and as I remember around about 80km from Foum Zguid is sand and it was difficult to go over. It took 5 hours for us to go this whole piste.

4It wouldn't have been on the N12 piste heading east from Foum Zguid. Green bits are gravel, red is earth/sand. Skull and crossbones marks the difficult section.
The N12 from Goulimine to Foum Zguid is a good road. There's some waterfalls just off the road at Tissint. The road takes a sharp right turn at the entrance to the town, you go straight on for 200m. And 1km before that, you are running alongside a gorge to the left. It's worth parking up and taking a look down into it.
Once you reach Foum Zguid, turn north on the R111 for about 55km, then east on the R108 to Agdz. Both of these are fine roads, especially the R108.

6I rode (bicycle) that stretch last March. As Khamlia pointed out it is a bone-jarring piste that forks out east 10 kms north of Foum-Zguid. Some stretches are corrugated and sandy (only a few 4x4s and motorbikes travelled it the 2 days I was on it) and some are just loose stones. The last 15 kms or so are paved but they were working on the road when I was there so it will eventually be paved over, as so many pistes were in the last decade.
