With Morocco Traveling, Ait Ben Haddou coupled with Telouet Kasbahs day trip aims to offer you the chance to experience the beauty of the South. You are to discover by yourself about the Glaoui and visit the most common castle of Morocco. We move through the Atlas Mountains and take the way to the Sahara Desert and the old nomad paths.
Ait benhadou and Telouet castels day trip moves through the chain of the High Atlas Mountains and via the pass of Tizi-n-Tichka. It is dramatically used in films shot in Morocco. Together with the way you can see villages distributed not at random. It is sometimes difficult to differentiate the mountainous entourage.
As nearer you become the change is on the offing. It starts becoming desert-like; whereby, the the Atlas Mountains are barriers distinguishing the Mediterranean climate of the north from the harsh desert winds in the south-east.
We leave the primary way and take a side road to the Telouet Kasbah, which belonged to the Pasha of the Atlas. As to the first Kasbah, you pay a visit to a few rooms. We said few because of lack of safety. However, the tiled walls, pillars, wooden ceilings prove that it was an interestingly fascinated and decorated prestigious site for people living in and its visitors.
Ait Ben Haddou Castle comes later after your lunch. Once you get a closer look at the Kasbah’s architecture design and style, you will be stunned and amazed in its perfect making and effort made in it. The traditional houses take into consideration the climate changes and conditions. They are, very suitable for the weather of the south and the top of the mountains.
The afternoon of the trip is spent in discovering the UNESCO World Heritage. The site of Ait Ben haddou is the most reputed Moroccan Kasbahs. Its wide spread is ascribed to its shot in several Hollywood blockbusters. It was historically a fortress stronghold, where traders brought slaves as well as gold, ivory to Marrakech. We will not depart Ait Benhaddou, until you have a glimpse of the village from a very far point granting a beatiful view.
