Description

Travel across the High Atlas Mountains to dramatic stone and mud-built fortresses known as kasbahs and fortified villages known as ksars on a tour from Marrakech. Travel with a local guide and driver to Telouet and Taourirt Kasbah as well as Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage ksar. After a breathtaking drive through the High Atlas Mountains and over the Tizi n’Tichka Pass (2,260 meters), your first sightseeing of the day is in Telouet. Telouet has one of the most grand kasbahs in Morocco. The site was once the palatial residence and headquarters of the powerful Glaoui tribe. Next, taking a secluded backroad, arrive at Ait Benhaddou. Inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the Ksar of Ait Benhaddou is a striking example of the architecture of southern Morocco. The ksar, a group of earthen buildings surrounded by high walls, is a traditional pre-Saharan habitat. See the houses crowd together within the defensive walls, which are reinforced by corner towers. Join a guided tour of the ancient settlement, and be sure to walk up to the high point on the hill above the ksar for special views. Your final stop is in Ouarzazate at the Taourirt Kasbah, a former Glaoui palace and the main attraction of the desert oasis city. This 300-room fortress, in part restored, marks the junction of 3 rivers – Dadès, Draâ, and Ziz – as well as numerous caravan routes. Explore the palace and stroll around the kasbah's irregular streets before taking a final transfer back to Marrakech for drop-off, Thanks for your visit
