We can enjoy one of the greatest views of the Dades Valley after breakfast. We’ll do it from one of the most advantageous vantage points the mountains have to offer. From there, we’ll be able to see how many kasbah there are and how gorgeous each one is, before exiting onto a route littered with various Kasbah of great appeal.
After many pauses to appreciate the Thousand Kasbah road, the Valley of Roses, and the vast palm grove of Skoura, we will arrive in Ouarzazate and see the Kasbah of Taourirt, the former house of the Glaoui or Pasha of Marrakech, Film Studios, and the Museum of Cinema. We will also visit Ait Ben Haddou, a fortified hamlet, and its famed Kasbah (Declared patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO in 1986).
Several classic films, like Gladiator, Obelix, and Sahara starring Penelope Cru, have been shot in this magnificent environment. Lunch will be served in the hamlet, and in the afternoon we will head for Marrakech through the Tizi Ntichka mountain pass, with photo opportunities along the way. The lunar landscape will be left behind, giving way to mainly green, ocher colors… and so on. Arrival in Marrakech at 6 p.m., travel to Riyadh, and hotel in Riyadh.
