The colored canyon is brilliant & wonderful, the formation of the rocks & ravines is just stunning, all those who wanting to go will not be dissapointed, the only advice i will give is that when booking, do not let the excursion people trick you into doing, the canyon, blue hole & shopping in dahab, a 3 in 1 package...

Not for the faint hearted this can be dangerous if you are silly, just take care. The scenery is spectacular and the rocks amazing.

Not for the less mobile, We loved walking around seeing the canyon. We did have to squeeze through gaps and also had to go through a gap onto someones shoulders. Not everyone liked this idea, and they may have changed the route for this now. It certainly keeps you fit, Take plenty of water as it gets hot.

You walk for one hour in a sunny and hot weather. Bring your camera, cap and bottle of cold water. I didn't had fun there but at all it wasn't bad.

Very nice scenic views and worth a visit when in Egypt. The only thing to be careful of is there are some dangerous places where accidents can easily happen.

it looks good, but don't expect a big variety of colors, there is some dangerous places where you can't pass from it easily if you are not fit, and you will probably need someone who went there before to help you to pass through it
