Pass By: High Atlas Mountains, 40000 Morocco
Day 1: Night and Half board (D)

Leave Marrakech, and follow a well-maintained road to the High Atlas Mountains. After about an hour, the road starts to wind its way along one of the most scenic roads in Morocco across a landscape of terraced wheat fields, cacti, waving palm trees and endless views. As the road begins to descend, the scenery changes drastically as suddenly as you enter a desert-like area. Soon, the imposing Kasbah Aït Benhaddou will loom up like a mirage.

Stop At: Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou, Ait Ben Haddou 45122 Morocco
Soon, the imposing Kasbah Aït Benhaddou will loom up like a mirage. A kasbah is a kind of citadel, composed of high-walled buildings of clay mixed with straw; historically used to shelter to entire village communities. At the top of the Kasbah, there is a fantastic view across the surrounding countryside and of the citadel itself giving you the sense of entering a medieval world with a warren of narrow lanes. the fortified city of Ait Ben Haddou is an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 With many things to do along the way, great for people who don't mind a little hike to see some exquisite views. Beautiful villages and towns scattered all around
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Stop At: Dades Gorges, R704 Atlas Mountains, Boumalne Dades 45350 Morocco
After lunch, you'll set off on your tour again and drive through the fertile valley to Dades Gorges . If you thought the road from Marrakech was beautiful, then wait till you see this. Bizarre rock formations, bright green palm valleys and rugged mountain peaks in all shapes and colours alternated by small traditional villages and breathtaking views. After 2 hour you’ll pass a restaurant (‘Panoramic’), with an outdoor terrace overlooking the valley and the colourful cliffs. It’s a nice place to stop off for a cup of coffee or mint tea. From here, it’s another 40 minutes drive past yet more weird but wonderful colourful rock formations. When the cliffs begin to get narrower and you enter a kind of gorge, you’ll know you’ve nearly reached your small mountain hotel. Moments later you’re greeted by the friendly owner night and dinner in hotel (Kasbah La Gazelle) or similar.

Bring your own sheets, lots of small bills and an open mind that this is not a western country. Amazing people, culture and everything in between.
