Day 1 of the marrakech desert trips: Marrakech - Ait Benhaddou - Dades Gorge

Another interesting road we will cross is the Tizin Tichka mountain pass, which is 2260 meters high and offers an amazing panoramic view at the mountains. After this, we will arrive at one of the most important historical Kasbahs in Morocco: the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou. On top of being a UNESCO world heritage site, the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou has piqued the interest of many international movie producers, which resulted in several big movies being shot here such as: Gladiator, The Mummy, Lawrence of Arabia and more. Through the years, the Kasbah has maintained its Berber traits and traditional architecture, which makes it a very important spot to visit during our tour.
Once we are done exploring it, we will visit the nearby Ouarzazate city, which is nicknamed “the Hollywood of Morocco” for containing the Kingdom’s most important movie studios.
