Your day trip starts from Marrakech, then passes through Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate in the High Atlas, on a private day trip. On this day trip to Ait Benhaddou, you will visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the local architecture Kasbah Ait Benhaddou. It is an incomparable beauty concentrated in southern Morocco.
The day trip from Marrakech to Ait Benhaddou takes you to the highest point of the road: the Tizi n’Tichka pass, which is the highest road pass in Morocco at 2,260 meters. About 30 km from Ouarzazate, the visit to Ksar Ait Benhaddou is inevitable. Inside are traditional houses, but also kasbahs (small citadels built in adobe and decorated with geometric patterns) representative of Berber culture. The place is also known to have served as a filming location for such famous films as Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth, The Mummy, and others.
Arriving at Ouarzazate we realize that it is a little Berber Hollywood because the world of cinema is very visible. The diversity of landscapes and the exceptional light of the region are in fact sought after for certain films. Ouarzazate is a link between the High Atlas Mountains, the Dadaism oasis, the Draa valleys, and the desert plateau of southern Morocco, it is nicknamed “The door of the desert”. Ouarzazate is known by the Taourirt Kasbah built in the 17th century by the Glaoui tribe and listed by UNESCO as a cultural heritage site, and by film studios that have produced many famous films. Return to Marrakech at the beginning of the evening.
