Itinerary:

Approximately 5 hours driving, 1h30 walking

Elevation: 2260m

An early departure from you hotel in Marrakech 7 :30. Drive towards Ait Benhaddou Kasbah
(Ksar) . This Trip takes you right across the reng of High Atlas mountains and over the famous Tizi-n-Tichka pass 2260 m, the highest in the whole of north Africa. As you reach the far side of the mountains the landscape changes dramatically, becoming semi-arid and desert-like. Here is the Kasbah architecture with turrets on all the buildings, adorned with grilled windows and soft peach coloured walls. These traditional houses are made of adobe, highly suitable for the climatic conditions of the south.
After the Tichka pass, you leave the main road and take a side road to the Telouet Kasbah, which belonged to the Lords ( Kaid ) of the Atlas, the Glaoui family, which stands in ruins after the last Pasha fled the country after the departure of the French. From there you continue for lunch at Ait Ben Haddou along the newly asphalted road.
The afternoon is spent exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou, which has been used as a backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters. It was one of the most important fortress strongholds on the old Salt Road caravan routes, where traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from sub-Saharan Africa to Marrakech and beyond. Drive back to Marrakech in the afternoon. Drop off at your Hotel in Marrakech.
