It is famous for its tough nature according to the harsh climate conditions especially during winter. The Berner villages are scattered all along the mountain sides. The scene here is uniquely harmonic since you reach the northern tops of The High Atlas Mountains and the desert appears faraway in the arid sphere. It looks like a natural barrier separating the northern Mediterranean climate from the dry breezes of the Desert. Try this trip to feel the harmonic difference between the North and the East only in one day. What an adventure!
Taking a side road passing 21612ms, the Pasha of the Atlas monument welcomes the visitors in the Telouet Kasbah. This place goes back in date to the last French army departure when the Pasha was the ruler. The Kasbah is located in the middle of the ruins which indicates ancient history of the past. Few rooms are waiting for you to visit in the first Kasbah; the other rooms are closed since they need urgent renovation. However, the colored walls, ceiling with tiles, the huge pillars and the wooden decorations with glass windows make you imagine yourself in one of the dynasty palaces where grandeur and luxury dwell.
The lunch is served in one of Ait Ben Haddou’s traditional homes. You will be able to examine the unbelievable beautiful decorations closely. The homes are all made of natural and organic materials that are highly suitable for the climate conditions of the south. They are made of clay and adobe which are the perfect isolators from high heat.
After the lunch, get ready to closely explore the natural studios of Ait Ben Haddou, the Hollywood studios. Aren’t you enthusiastic to know the places where your favorite international movies had been decorated and filmed in. a quick tour within these studios will blow your mind away. However, the UNESCO has chosen Ait Ben Haddou as the World Heritage City since it is the mother of all the Moroccan Kasbahs and its authenticity during the centuries.
