Your day trip starts from Marrakech, then passes through Ben Haddou 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 local architecture Kesbah Ait Benhaddou. It is a concentrate of incomparable beauty in southern Morocco.
The day trip from Marrakech to Ben Haddou takes you to the highest point of the road: the Tizi n'Tichka pass, which is the highest pass in Morocco at 2,260 meters. About 30 km from Ouarzazate, the visit of Ksar Ait Ben Haddou is inevitable. Inside there are traditional houses, but also Kasbahs (small citadels built in adobe and decorated with geometric patterns) representative of the Berber culture. It is also known that the place served as a filming location for such famous films as Lawrence of Arabia, Jesus of Nazareth, The Mummy and others.
Upon arriving in Ouarzazate we realize that it is a bit of 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 for certain films. Ouarzazate is a link between the High Atlas mountains, the Dadèsm oasis, the Draa valleys and the desert plateau of southern Morocco, it is known as "The door of the desert". Ouarzazate is known for the Kasbah Taourirt built in the 17th century by the Glaoui tribe and listed by UNESCO as cultural heritage, and for movie studios that have produced many famous films. Return to Marrakech at the beginning of the night.
