Overview

Abu Simbel, 290 kilometres south of Aswan, is the largest sacred site in Nubia, both in size and in the quality of its architecture, sculptures and bas-reliefs. The construction of the dam forced the dismantling of the two temples stone by stone at the top of the cliff in which they had been dug. The temple was therefore raised by about 60 metres.

Departure from Aswan

Depart Aswan early in the morning at about 4am from your place of residence or arrival (train station, airport) to travel through the desert under the first rays of the sun. After a 3-hour drive, you will discover Abu Simbel, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, consisting of two rock-cut temples, one dedicated to Ramses II and the other to his first wife Nefertiti.
During a guided tour of approximately 2 hours, you will discover these two marvels of Pharaonic architecture, moved to be saved from the waters during the construction of the great Aswan Dam. Before leaving the site, a packed lunch will be provided.
The return to Aswan will take place in the middle of the day where we will drop you off at your place of residence or at another site to continue your visits of this city with its thousand-year-old charms.
