Kasbahs and Ksars one day  Trip to Telouet, Ait Benhaddou

On this private guided day trip you’ll travel across the High Atlas Mountains to reach a vast desert plain that forms the outer reaches of the Sahara. This is a remarkable land of contrasts with river-fed oasis towns, contorted ancient volcanic wilderness, flourishing valleys, dramatic stone and mud-built Kasbahs and fortified villages known as Ksars. Travelling with a local guide and driver you’ll visit Telouet and Taourirt Kasbahs plus the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ksar at Ait Benhaddou. Despite the early start, this is a really great day out!

    Itinerary Tizi n’Tichka & Telouet

    After a dramatic drive through the High Atlas Mountains and over the Tizi n’Tichka Pass (2,260m) our first sightseeing of the day is at Telouet, a village on the ‘Route of the Caravans’ from the Sahara over the Atlas Mountains to Marrakech. Telouet has one of the most spectacular Kasbahs in the Atlas, which was once the palatial residence and headquarters of the powerful Glaoui tribe.

    Ksar of Ait Benhaddou

    Next, taking a little used back road we arrive at Ait Benhaddou. Inscribed by UNESCO in 1987 as a ‘World Heritage Site’, the Ksar of Ait Benhaddou is a striking example of the architecture of southern Morocco. The Ksar, a group of earthen buildings surrounded by high walls, is a traditional pre-Saharan habitat. The houses crowd together within the defensive walls, which are reinforced by corner towers. After a guided tour of the ancient settlement be sure to walk up to the high point on the hill above the Ksar for particularly fine views.
