Telouet sightseeing

Description
Morning departure from Ouarzazate by 4x4 to Telouet Kasbah,This day trip takes you across of the High Atlas mountains and over the famous the Ounila Valley pass, one of the most dramatic passes in Morocco. All along the road you can see the Berber villages scattered ... along the side of the mountains, sometimes it is hard to be distinguished from the mountains themselves. As you reach the far side of the mountains the landscape changes dramatically, becoming semi-arid and desert-like. Here is the Kasbah architecture with turrets on all the buildings, adorned with grilled windows and soft peach coloured walls. These traditional houses are made of adobe, highly suitable for the climatic conditions of the south. the Telouate kasbah which belonged to the Pacha of the Atlas, the Glaoui, which stands in ruins after the last Pasha fled the country after the departure of the French. In the first kasbah you will visit only a few rooms that can be seen, as much of the kasbah has been closed off because of the falling ceilings and unsafe walls. However, the tiled walls, fluted pillars, beautifully painted wooden ceilings and coloured glass windows of the reception rooms allow you to imagine what it was like in its prime. After our visit to the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou we will take the way back to Ouarzazate.
