Day 1
MARRAKECH – HIGH ATLAS MOUNTAINS – OUARZAZATE – ZAGORA DESERT

Departure in the morning from your hotel or riad through the High Atlas Mountains and the famous Tizi - Tichka (2260m) From these mountains, the view of the valleys and Berber villages perched on the mountainside, sometimes barely to distinguish from the mountains themselves, are spectacular. After crossing the pass, it continues to drop until you reach Ouarzazate, where you stop for lunch. From there, you cross another smaller passage, Tizi -n-Tinfifite, before reaching the Draa Valley in Agdez. We walk along the path of the ancient caravans between the mountains and the river, passing through many villages and gardens so you can get a better idea of how to live along the oasis. Then you come to Zagora, where you will have a camel ride to watch the sunset and have dinner in the dunes at the nomad tents camp for the night.

Day 2
ZAGORA – KASBAH AIT BEN HADDOU – TICHKA PASS - MARRAKECH

If you get up early enough to see the sunrise, you will be rewarded by the beautiful play of shadows on the sand. After breakfast, you will return to the north, taking another short path. From Ouarzazate, you leave the main road in Marrakech to join the UNESCO world heritage site of Ait Ben Haddou. This Kasbah, the most famous of Morocco, was used as a backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters and was one of the most important fortresses on the ancient salt caravan routes, where traders brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from the sub - Saharan Africa in Marrakech and beyond. From there, continue along the new road of Telouet Kasbah, which belonged to the lords of the Atlas, the Glaoui family, and is now in ruins after the last Pasha fled the country after the departure of the French. The return to Marrakech is located along the main road, which atraversa many Berber villages along the river has crossed the mountains. Sometimes you go down into the valleys along the river, lined with oleanders and fruit trees. The gardens are full of olives, nuts, apples, pomegranates, pears and quince. Berber women and children take care of goats and sheep and even mount the steepest slopes in search of fodder and firewood. We arrive in Marrakech early in the evening.
