Yes it is the smallest of the trio of Giza and has been damaged but still as impressive as the rest. We didn't go inside that one but has been told that it is similar to the rest. A bit further from the other two but you can stop here if you have the horse/carriage/car/camel or by foot.

The smallest of the 3 main pyramids at Giza, the Mikerinos Pyramid is still just as beautiful. A bit of a walk away from the main action, it is worth a quick stop on the way to the Panorama Viewpoint.

The Mikerinos or pyramid of Menkaure is much easier to access than the Khufu or Cheops pyramid. The access is stairs with a handrail. Yes, you do have to bend over while going up and down the stairs, but with the handrails, it is not that difficult. You get to stand up in an antechamber, and again when you reach... More

We visited in April. It is the newest and smallest of the three pyramids of Gizah. It is less visited that the other 2. When we visited Mikerinos (Menkaure), surprisingly, there were no other visitors and we were not bothered by anybody. You can detail the different colours at the base (granite) and the upper parts of the pyramid. It... More

It costs 80 L.E. per person to enter the Giza Pyramids site and an additional amount of money to go inside of this pyramid. Buy your ticket at the front gate if you want to go inside. Local vendors will try to pressure you into horse and camel rides or to buy their over priced souvenirs. The pyramid is amazing... More

From my experience, it is not worth going inside it, only if you have no other option and you really want to be inside a pyramid.

This is part of the Giza complex. You see all three pyramids from the lookout point. A beautiful experience.

This is the smallest of the three main Pyramids in Gizeh. It is illuminated at night for the "Sound & Lights" and a must see when visiting Cairo!!
