Hard to believe that this tomb is so old, All the paintings inside are perfect, there is an area inside on the wall facing you when you enter that the sun always shines on.

The tomb of Ramesses V/VI is the second only in size to the closed tomb of Seti I in Kings Valley. Hugely important to the development of funeral texts in the New Kingdom, Ramesses VI is visually stunning. Beautifully carved and painted corridors lead to a huge white barrel-vaulted ceilinged burial chamber. Texts and images glow in the electric lights.... More

There appears to be a helicopter perching on top of a figure located on the right hand wall of the burial chamber. You have to lean out over the... More

Just the restoration of the hieroglyphics is an amazing and jaw dropping feat to be witnessed and appreciated . Its a deep tomb and unfortunately has been pilfered over the preceding centuries , but none the less its a must see and well worth it going out of the way for if you are into this sort of thing.
