Ait benhaddou is a fortified village at about 190km south-east Marrakech. A touristic attraction due the quality of the well preserved village and its wonderful kasbahs. It was declared as a wold heritage site by the UNESCO and was used as a backdrop from many movies such as the gladiator, Lawrance of Arabia and even the famous TV show Games of thrones as the city of ‘Yunkai’. This excursion is not only about the village itself, it takes away from the hustle of the city to the calm of the High Atlas mountains as you cross the highest pass of Tizi N’Tichka (2260m) then give you the opportunity to visit the city of Ouarzazate, its beautiful kasbah of Taourirte and the musuem of Cinema (recommended you take a local guide to fully enjoy the place and get some rich background information).
