Day 2 : marrakech
With time to explore Marrakech at the end of our journey, we leave the Red City behind and head into the Atlas Mountains. Our destination for the day is the well preserved Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most spectacular sights of the Atlas, made famous as the filming location for several Hollywood films including Gladiator. The route takes us over Tizi N Tichka pass, the highest in Morocco, arriving mid afternoon. We will then have time for an afternoon walk around the town.
