Tour 1.3

1 day: Excursion to Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate

We set out in the morning from your hotel or riad in Marrakesh. We’ll be crossing the mountains of the High Atlas range and the pass of Tizi-n-Tichka (2,260 m), where the views are breathtaking. The scenic road runs through oak woods and walnut groves, Berber villages with stone and mud brick houses, and pastures where goats and sheep graze. After crossing the pass, we come down into the lunar landscape of the Lesser Atlas and reach Ait Benhaddou, a mud brick kasbah protected by UNESCO and known as the finest and most famous in Morocco, which has featured in a number of films, such as Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth and The Gladiator. After the tour our journey resumes and takes us to Ouarzazate, with a visit to the Taourirt Kasbah and the cinema studies, if you wish, then cross the High Atlas mountains to reach Marrakesh towards evening.
