About Kasbah Telouet & Tichka Pass
A day into the High Atlas, crossing the Tichka Pass and visiting one of the grandest and most famous of all the Atlas fortresses - the Kasbah of Telouet.
Activity code: RAKTEL
Duration: 1 Day
An early (8am) departure to one of the grandest of all the Atlas fortresses - the Kasbah of Telouet. At an altitude of over 7000 feet, this is the one-time strategic home of the 'Lord of the Atlas', the warrior brothers Glaoui, who ruled and rampaged over southern Morocco during the French Protectorate. Sir Winston Churchill and other VIPs were once on the exclusive guest list. The splendour of the Kasbah is gently fading, yet there is more than enough left of this fascinating and ancient residence to give you a fine example of another epoch in Morocco's colourful history.
This easy tour of the Kasbah is one full day from Marrakech, made by Minibus or 4WD - (lunch is not included).
