The views will be getting more and more impressive as we mount the peaks of the Atlas. The highest road pass of Morocco Tizi Tichka reaches the high of 2260m that offers splendid views. Then we start our descend into the town of Telouet. Here we visit stunning Kasbah of Telouet. True, the Kasbah is in bad shape but the sites that remain are very impressive. Then we travel along the Ounila Valley passing many small towns to the town of Ait Ben Haddou. Here we visit the Ksour that is UNESCO protected. You will have plenty of time to walk in the winding street of the Kasbah and enjoy the views that are awe inspiring. We spend night in this town. (B, D)
