           Day Trip From Marrakech To Ait Benhaddou

Day Trip From Marrakech To Ait Benhaddou Located on the edge of the Sahara Desert, Aït Benhaddou is a fortified kasbah made famous for providing the set for blockbusters including Gladiator (2000), Lawrence of Arabia (1962), and many more. Cross the river to wander through the village, where locals are slowly starting to return to their mud-brick homes. Don’t forget to stop and enjoy the stunning views of the palm groves and sandcastle-like kasbahs as you climb to the top. If you have time, you can continue on to Ouarzazate for more movie-related sights, like the Museum of Cinema and the impressive but decaying film sets at Atlas Corporation Studios.

Day 1:Marrakech – Atlas Mountains – Ouarzazate-Marrakech

Departing early in the morning from your accommodation in Marrakech, you will drive towards Ouarzazate through the High Atlas before reaching the Tizi N’Tichka pass. Sitting 2,260 meters high, this is the highest road crossing in Morocco. It connects the Marrakech Saharan regions, of which Ouarzazate is the crossroad.

You will then stop for a visit to the famous fortified city of Ait Ben Haddou. This city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its Kasbah has been the backdrop for many films including the Diamond of the Nile, Lawrence of Arabia, Sodom and Gomorrah, the Jewel of the Nile, Jesus of Nazareth, the Mummy, Gladiator, and Babel. After this visit to the fortified village of Ait Ben Haddou, you will continue to the city of Ouarzazate to explore another Kasbah built in the 17th century. Here you will visit the cinema studios, before stopping for lunch in a local restaurant.

Following lunch, you can enjoy free time to enjoy a mint tea and enjoy the green valley and beautiful views of the High Atlas peaks. In this area, between the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert, one can find several Kasbahs, all the color of the sand and forming small Berber villages that take advantage of the abundance of water from the Atlas to its small crops and animals. At the end of the day, you will be returned to your accommodation in Marrakech.
