Day trip to Kasbah Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate

Day trip to Kasbah Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate

We start our day early in the morning, where you will be picked up from your hotel at 7 in the morning to depart from Marrakech to the High Atlas mountains, passing a small Berber village and the cool of Tizin Tishka, which stands at 2260 meters. Here, you can see incredible variegated colors in the rock and also a grand view of the mountains.

Continuing on the road, we visit the Kasbah of Telouat, an old castle where the Glaui Pacha lived. We then stop midday for a nice lunch. Afterwards, we go to the second Valley of Ounila to reach the Kasbah of Ait Bin Haddou, which has since 1987 been classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, where you can still find some families living in (although we won’t actually be able to join the families).

You may find it familiar: it was a chosen shooting site for the films Gladiator, Lawrence of Arabia, and the Prince of Persia! 29 km from Ourzazate is a cinema studio where several films are shot. Once you finish up snapping shots of Ouarzazate, we wrap up our day and head back to Marrakech.
