We will leave the city behind and journey through the High Atlas mountains, reaching a high point called the Tizi-N-Tichka Pass, which is 2,260 meters (7,415 feet) above sea level. We will make stops to see some lovely Berber villages on our way. We will then visit the famous Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, an old fortified village known for its unique Moroccan architecture. Many famous movies were filmed here, like “Kingdom of Heaven” in 2005, “Babel” in 2006, “Prince of Persia” in 2010, “Game of Thrones” in 2012, and the recent documentary “David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet” in 2020. You will have plenty of time to explore this historic Kasbah. After a tasty lunch, we will head south along the “Road of a Thousand Kasbahs” to Dades Valley, passing through places like Ouarzazate, Skoura, and the Valley of Roses in Kalaat M’Gouna. When we reach Dades Valley in the afternoon, we will take you to some impressive rock formations known as the “monkey fingers” if there is enough time.

We will walk beneath this deep canyon before continuing to the Merzouga desert. As we reach Merzouga in the afternoon, you will begin a camel trek across the Erg Chebbi dunes. During this trek, you will stop on a high dune to watch a breathtaking sunset over the golden dunes of Erg Chebbi.
