Take a day trip from Marrakech through the High Atlas Mountains by the Tizi n’Tichka pass to the village of Telouet and the UNESCO-listed fortified village of Ait-Ben-Haddou. Enjoy a local lunch and get a better understanding of Berber culture.
What to Expect
You’ll be picked up in Marrakech and head out in an air-conditioned 4WD vehicle on a drive across the largest mountains in North Africa. En route you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the High Atlas Mountains and fertile valleys. This 10-hour trip is priced for a group of up to 4 persons.
See the salt mines in the Ounila Valley, the Pacha Glaoui Kasbah, and Telouet. Visit the Ksar (Castle) of Ait-Ben-Haddou, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
The village of Ait-Ben-Haddou is situated on a hill in the Souss Massa Draa region, along the Ouarzazate River. It was an important stop for traders carrying gold, salt, and slaves along the main caravan route through the Sahara.
Both Lawrence of Arabia and Jesus of Nazareth were filmed here. The entire lower part of the village was rebuilt, and in recent years, more controlled restoration was carried out under the watchful eye of UNESCO.
Lunch is provided at a local Ait-Ben-Haddou restaurant, where you’ll enjoy your meal with panoramic views of the Kasbah. Your return trip to Marrakech is via the Tizi n’Tichka pass.
