Morning drive on 4X4 Toyota across the high Atlas Mountains at tizi N’tichka pass (6.660 feet), past scenic views of mountains and semi-desert Terrain topped by kasbahs and adobe homes .
We will visit the ancient Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, an impressive 11th century structure, which has been declared by UNESCO to be an historical treasure. A photographer’s wonderland. This strange and remote kasbah gives visitors a sense of the drama and history between 1893 and 1956 when the pacha Glaoui and his family were at their height of power and suffered their great fall. The fascinating events of this period and the personal style of Thami El Glaoui are brilliantly unfolded in Gavin Maxwell’s “Lord of the Atlas”. The brooding romanticism of this novel almost compels readers to visit Telouet.
