A great tomb in the valley of the kings, remember that you aren't allowed to take pictures in the tombs- you will get caught

Amazing colour's still in tact and all the carvings also. Again no queues - so good time to go. Again no photo's allowed which is a crying shame, but understand why the rule has to be in place.

The tomb of Ramses VI. is one of the largest in the Valley of the Kings. The burial chamber has one of the most remarkable and perfectly preserved ceiling decorations: the scenery of goddess Mut giving birth to the sun which is then cruising the earth before it disappears again - day and night

As I mentioned before in my review about the Kings Valley the whole place is amazing and this tomb is one of the best, the carvings on the walls the design of the tomb itself make your mind wonder how did the Pharaohs build all this long long ago, the tomb is one of tombs that require extra ticket so...

An excellent tomb to visit. There are many writing on the walls describing ancient Egyptian life. Some of the painted walls are still intact. When traveling Egypt, use Goshen Travel Egypt. Very informative guides.

Paid extra for this tomb (50LE each) but it was well worth the extra cost. Take your time and enjoy but remember to take a hat and water and good shoes.

One of the representative of valley of the kings. My guide put his emphasis on Ramses VI. You should take bottles of water too. Some of the tombs smell bad, but not as bad as the pyramids in Giza.

It's not the biggest nor the best known tomb within the King's valley, but it did strike me as awesome. I did not have the chance to visit the tombs of Seti I or Ramses II. So far, this is my favorite.
