Trip through the Land Of Pharaohs

The River Nile divides Egypt into two halves-upper half, consisting of Luxor and Aswan and Lower Egypt, comprising the valley south of Cairo. You can start your journey in the land of mummies from Cairo and look for the Pyramids of Giza, the only surviving wonder of the ancient world. Before reaching Giza you can visit the step pyramids at Saqqara which was built by the King Zoser and is older than the Giza.



The pillars inside the pyramid are very beautiful and are engraved with lotus and papyrus. The wall painting inside the pyramid of Titi is just amazing. You can also see the grain storage here. Giza has two pyramids built by father and son – Khufu and Khafre. You can see the camel with decorated saddles, stirrups and reins. You cannot resist taking a long ride through the desert when you are here. It is really a surreal experience to hear to the Bedouins singing hymns. You can also see the carpet and the perfume museum.


Spending an evening on the Nile Cruise watching the belly dancers and Sufi musicians perform is just something that cannot be missed. In Luxor the old world remains intact. You can just sit in the balcony of the famous old winter palace hotel and go back to the Pharaonic era.  You can see the ruins of the Luxor temple and look for the Valley of the Kings and Queens. The Golf-cart ride in this valley is real fun. You can also see the spectacular tombs of Nefertiti and Tutankhamen as an added attraction here. You can see the two huge statues called the Colossi of Mammon which are reputed to have prophetic powers.


From Luxor you can reach Aswan and visit the twin temples of Kom Ombo and Edfu which is located on the eastern bank of river Nile. The Greco Roman Temple was dedicated to the crocodile god. This is the place where you can see the mummies of crocodile. The Temple of Horus is one of the most beautiful and preserved temple in Egypt. You can enjoy the breathtaking on the boat across the River Nile to the Philae Temple which makes it one of the memorable trips to this land of pharaohs.

  • No, you can’t see the tomb of Nefertiti… from what I understand her mummy/body (and thus a tomb) has never been found.
