HIGHLIGHTS: Guided tour of Kasbah in Telouet, sunset in Ait Ben Haddou, traditional lunch along Morocco's famous Tizi n' Techka road.
After breakfast, we’ll pass through the gateway to the Atlas Mountains and head to the heartland of the Amazigh people. Along the road, we will stop for a traditional Moroccan lunch, and tour the ancient Kasbah of Telouet where we’ll learn about the Glaoui tribe’s role in shaping Moroccan history.
Telouet is an old Glaoui town, about 25km off the winding Tizi N’ Techka road between Marrakech and Ouarzazate, that features one of the most beautiful ancient, tribal Kasbahs. The Glaoui tribe was a well-known nomadic and warring tribe from this region and their Kasbah is replete with fortressed walls, intricate tile-work, and incredible views.
That evening we will stay in neighboring town, Ait Ben Haddou, known for its fortresses and, most recently, for many film and TV shows, including Game of Thrones.
