This full day excursion takes us into the High Atlas Mountains to the top of the TichkaPass  (6,600 ft) and over to Telouet, where the fascinating Glaoui brothers (Madani and Thami) had their main residence and stronghold.   This vast complex of crumbling buildings was finally abandoned in 1956. This strange and remote Kasbah gives visitors a sense of the drama and history between 1893 and 1956 when the PachaGlaoui and his family were at the height of power and suffered their great fall. The fascinating events of this period and the personnel style of Thami El Glaoui are brilliantly unfolded in Gavin Maxwell's "Lord of the Atlas". The brooding romanticism of this novel almost compels readers to visit Telouet.  (Please note that Land Rovers in Morocco do not come equipped with seat belts.)
