  • This trip starts gently through the Haouz plain and its fertile landscapes before reaching the High Atlas and climbing up to Tizi-n-Tichka pass (2260 ft). A striking contrast between two slopes of the chain: North preserves a Mediterranean character, while the South is much more Saharian with red clay villages and greeneries among the shadows of fig and pomegranate trees. The desert cities are famed for their Berber-styled castles, hospitality and geometric carpets. Take a recommended turn-off leading to the village of Taourirt, the former residence of the Pasha Glaoui. Visit the fortified Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou; a fabulous village in the middle of fields of flowering almond trees playing so artfully with the light that it has been used as setting for films such as “Lawrence of Arabia”, “Un thé au Sahara” and many others.
