You will go on a walk with a local guide and cross the river to discover The Ksar and climb to the top of the hill through the alleys of Ait-ben-Haddou, which is like rambling through the middle ages for an amazing view on the fertile Ounila river valley. Surrounded by desertic landscape, and with the snow capped Atlas mounrtains as a background, the view from the top seems to encompasse the whole world.
