Ait Benhaddou and Telouet Kasbahs: Day Trip from Marrakech

1. Ait Benhaddou and Telouet Kasbahs: Day Trip from Marrakech

Experience Ait Benhaddou and Telouet Kasbahs day trip from Marrakech. Criss-cross the Atlas Mountains and take the road to the Sahara Desert on the old caravan routes. See colorful villages with houses erected from mud. See trading outposts, local art, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites featured in Hollywood blockbusters. Ride over the famous Tizi-n-Tichka, see Berber villages, and watch as the landscape changes drastically, becoming semi-arid and desert-like as the chain of the Atlas mountains acts as barrier against the Mediterranean climate of the north. Take a side road to the Telouet Kasbah, which belonged to the Pacha of the Atlas, the Glaoui, and was left to ruin after the departure of the French armies. Marvel at the tiled walls, fluted pillars, painted wooden ceilings, and colored glass windows of the reception rooms. Enjoy lunch at Ait Ben Haddou along the newly asphalted road. Once in the village, get a closer look at the Kasbah's turrets, grilled windows, and soft peach coloured adobe walls. Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou, the most famous of all Moroccan kasbahs, due to its appearance in many Hollywood blockbusters. This 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. Before leaving Ait Benhaddou, take one last glimpse of the village from a distant point offering a panoramic view.
