Day trip to Ouarzazate & Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah from Marrakech
This full-day excursion will take you across the High Atlas chain through the Tizi N’Tichka pass – an imposing landscape of the high mountains and traditional Berber villages. The descent along the east side of the chain offers a sudden change in the lush landscape to an arid, desert panorama. In Ouarzazate, visit the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou and Taourirt Kasbah. Ait Ben Haddou is UNESCO protected 11th century site that inspired many movie makers, Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia was filmed there. The views from the upper heights are awe inspiring and worth the required climb of narrow, winding streets.
