Along the way, we can stop at the panoramic view of Ait Ben Haddou.
Aït-Ben-Haddou (آيت بن حدو) is a medieval, fortified city in the Moroccan region of Souss-Massa-Daraâ along a river. The city is known for the beautiful Kasbahs, which are built against a hill. These are made of clay and are called the Ksar together. The kasbas are reinforced by walls with corner towers with narrow alleys in between, and thus a typical example of South Moroccan architecture. The city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987 and annually attracts some 25,000 tourists.
The new city has about 750 inhabitants, most of whom now live in modern houses in a neighborhood on the other side of the river. However, a few families still live in the ksar. Completely on top is the grain storage, again within a wall. This was the best-defended part of the ksar.
The road towards Marrakech takes us through a high mountain range, the high Atlas. High Atlas, also called the Grand Atlas Mountains (Arabic: الاطلس الكبير; is a mountain range in central Morocco.
The High Atlas rises in the west at the Atlantic Ocean and stretches in an eastern direction to the Moroccan-Algerian border.
The range includes Jbel Toubkal, which at 4,167 m is the highest in the range and lies in Toubkal National Park. The range serves as a weather system barrier in Morocco running east-west and separating the Sahara from the Mediterranean and continental zones to the north and west. In the higher elevations of the massif, snow falls regularly, allowing winter sports. Snow lasts well into late spring in the High Atlas, mostly on the northern faces of the range. On the Western High Atlas, there is Oukaïmeden, one of three main ski stations in Morocco.
At the end of the afternoon,n we arrive in Marrakech, the Red City.
