Located about 45 minutes South of Luxor on the road to Esna in the village of El Moalla lies the little visited tombs of Ankhtifi and Sobekhotep.

Some say it's in the village of El -Moalla or El Masah-Id(?? – not sure of spelling) These tombs are not visited much. It can be done, the only drawback is finding people to take you! You must buy the tickets from the Luxor Temple before you go. I would say that you need to be interested in the First... More
