Dahshout is not scenicly beautiful however I was amazed when we climbed up and got inside the burial chamber. You will feel ancient and thrilled. Just make sure you have a very rwliable guide. I will highly recommend Egypt Tailor Made. They are literally 'The Best' so far. Egypt is totally safe with ETM.

This pyramid was a lot quieter and going inside was absolutely stunning. There wasn't too many people at the pyramid selling stuff don't be intimidated they are just trying to make some money. Just a couple of 'La Shukrans' normally do the job.

We didn't get out of our vehicle to visit this one, but still good to see as we drove past. A must visit to see the one of the wonders of the world.
