Trip Info

Telouet Kasbah & Ait Benhaddou

A perfect destination for those of you who want a glimpse of the desert, and beautiful kasbahs built by Berbers ( Amazigh) who ruled the Salt road caravan routes.

Three hours takes you to the gateway of Sahara, traversing the Tichka Pass over the High Atlas mountains. Along the way, steep hillsides are clustered with fortified mud dwellings housing many families and their livestock.

In Telouet you’ll visit inside the old Glaoui palace. This once beautiful structure now stands crumbling to ruin because no one wants to remember “the vulture” sultan who lived here.

You’ll spend the afternoon exploring on foot, the UNESCO world heritage site of Ait Benhaddou, used as a backdrop for more than 20 films and one of the most important fortress strongholds on the old Salt Road where camel caravan traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from Saharan Africa to Marrakech and beyond. You may also visit Ouarzazate… Recommended year round
