Day Trip Starting from Marrakech To the UNESCO world heritage site of Ait Benhaddou.
You will start this excursion by leaving Marrakech across Tizi n’Tichka Pass one of the most amazing roads in Morocco.
After a tea break in a very panoramic view you are free to take some beautfull pictures, after we will head to Telouet.
In this village, you will discover the Glaoui Kasbah.
This kasbah has an amazing fairytale behind it, intrinsically linked to the formation of the kingdom of Morocco.
It was once a beautiful kasbah but now stands crumbling to ruin because no one wants to remember “the vulture” sultan and his son who lived here until the 1950’s.
Afther your visit to the Kasbah, you will continue to Ait Benhaddou village.
