From Marrakech to the Sahara: On the other side of the Atlas Mountains is a barren land interspersed with trees and valleys and, occasionally, some masterpieces of civilization whose owners were abandoned by the time. But these kasbahs are not abandoned. They have now become part of a Hollywood shooting location, a modern base for the creation of fantasies about our common human ancestors.
I guess it must be quite a funky experience constructing different reality for the same species across a couple hundred years.
"Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures, kill nothing but time." .... Day 3 of our Marocco roadtrip / yesterday was time to hit the road from Marrakesh to Ouarzazte.
We killed some time but we're so impressed of all that amazing rock formations, Kasbahs and stunning views when we passed the high Atlas mountains. Before we head to Ouarzazte we drove to the amazing Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. I've never seen cool place like this.
Today's deal is Tinghir and we're also impressed of this beautiful views over Kasbahs, palm trees and colours.
Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou is a group of buildings surrounded by defensive walls, and it’s an example of the architecture of southern Morocco. Ait Ben Haddou, a traditional mud brick village and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, became a very famous and touristy place because it has appeared in many movies, including Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator.🎥 Some Game of Thrones scenes were filmed here too. The place is wonderful. I climbed to the top of the buildings and was rewarded with an amazing view of the village. 😍••••••••••••••••••••••• •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#ksaraitbenhaddou#aitbenhaddou#ourzazate#gameofthronessite#gameofthrones
