Three sides of the shaft were completed before a flaw was discovered in the stone and the obelisk was abandoned. Had it been completed, it would have weighed an astonishing 1.8 million kg (1,197 tons) and stood 41 m (134 ft) high
  • Temple of Philae, this Graeco-Roman temple dedicated to the cult of Isis. It is situated on its own picturesque island in the middle of the Nile and the only way to visit it is by motor launch, which makes for a supremely dramatic approach. It lies between the Aswan and High Dams, a 15-minute drive south of town.
  • The largest of the islands at Aswan, Elephantine Island is also the site of the town’s oldest settlement. In ancient times it was the cult centre of the ram headed god of the Nile flood, Khnum.

Everything is on a gigantic scale:  the site covers over 2 sq km. Karnak was the most important place of worship in Egypt during the New Kingdom. It was called Ipet-Sut, meaning ‘The Most Esteemed of Places’; Karnak is its Arabic name meaning ‘fortified settlement. The complex of Karnak includes three main enclosures: AMUN TEMPLE ENCLOSURE – MAIN AXIS,MUT TEMPLE ENCLOSURE and MONTU TEMPLE ENCLOSURE.

The temple was built for the Opet celebrations, when the statues of Amun, Mut and Khonsu were annually reunited during the inundation season with that of Amun of Opet. A mosque was built in one of the interior courts for the local sheikh (holy man) Abu al-Haggag. In front of the temple is the beginning of the avenue of sphinxes that ran all the way to the temples at Karnak 3km to the north, which is now being entirely excavated.

  • We proceed to the Mortuary Temple of Hatchepsut; the temple is a partly rock-cut and partly free standing terraced structure. The temple was vandalized over the centuries: Tuthmosis III removed his stepmother’s name whenever he could, Akhenaton removed all references to Amun, and the early Christians turned it into a monastery, Deir al-Bahri (Monastery of the North), and defaced the pagan reliefs. The temple consists of:great court,Chapel of Anubis,Punt Colonnade, Hathor Chapel.
  • Visiting Colossi of Memnon, two statues of Amenhotep III are all that remain of a massive compound this Pharaoh built to house his mortuary temple.

  • Bit by bit the yellow desert sands east of the road start to become pierced by chalky rock formations. s you get further into the 300-sq-km White Desert Protectorate, you’ll notice that the surreal shapes start to take on familiar forms: chickens, ostriches, camels, hawks and other uncanny shapes abound. Two flat-topped mountains known as the Twin Peaks, a key navigation point for travelers. A favorite destination: the view from the top of the surrounding symmetrical hills, all shaped like giant anthills, is spectacular. Kids will delight in coming up with shape associations, and photographers will fill up their memory cards trying to capture the brilliant hues of the setting sun reflecting off the inselbergs’ shiny surfaces. Waking up amongst them is one of the highlights of any camping trip into the desert
