Tour Overview

Itinerary

Aswan, Egypt

Your private guide will collect you from your hotel in Aswan at 5:00 am for the three-hour drive south: you'll travel in your own comfortable air-conditioned vehicle for this private tour of Abu Simbel. Home to some of the most staggeringly impressive and intricate rock carvings in the country, and possibly the world, Abu Simbel is a place of wonder and excitement and should be a stop on any Egyptian itinerary. Located in the Southern part of the country, bordering on Sudan, the temples of the village of Abu Simbel have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The temples are carved in to the mountainside in the 13th century BC and were dedicated to the reigning Pharaoh of the time - Ramses II and his wife Nefertari, catering to their egos as well as memorialising their power. The landscape here is barren desert with towering cliffs that slope down to the Lake Nasser. Despite this, the temples are unmissable, making a trip to this otherwise unexciting region more than worth the time and effort. Aside from the main temples there are a number of other fascinating areas that should be explored. The depiction of the Battle of Qadesh is both complete and stunning and is carved into the main complex. Another point of interest in and around the Abu Simbel temples is the Relief of Ra, which suggests the emphasis placed on the sun and the significance of its orientation in the construction of the temple. In addition to this there is a statue of Seth, the God of Storms, within Ramses' temple, despite the ancient Egyptians being scared of him and limiting any physical reproductions. Once you've exhausted all that this ancient site has to offer, head down to the side of the man-made Lake Nasser to relax and cool off. for more information info@trulyegypt.com
