A Day Trip Near Marrakech: Visit The Kasbah Aït Benhaddou- A UNESCO World Heritage Site

The harder a place is to get to, the more mesmerising it is. The remote a place is to get to, the more rewarding that experience is. Although most would go to Essaouira or Agadir as a day trip from Marrakech but on our day three in Marrakech , we drove for 5 and a half hours through nearly 100 kilometres of treacherous but picturesque curvy mountainous roads and headed to south-east towards Ourzazate to see a UNESCO World Heritage Site called Aït Benhaddou. This is where we saw and met people from original Berber tribes.  Come, travel with us to find out why your Morocco trip will be left incomplete if you don’t explore this location at Ait Benhaddou.
