We had an amazing experience doing this in November. We got a bedouin guide to take us up the bedouin trail (not the main tourist trail) so we were all alone in the middle of the night hiking in the dark up the mountain. The stars were so vivid and beautiful. It gets chillier the higher you go so make... More

Beautiful views 360. Enjoyed seeing the life that surrounds it. Such as the camels and their guides as they make their way up to Mt. Sinai.

Wear good walking shoes, we choose to ride camel half way up was very peaceful and enjoyed the stars. Hiking up was difficult, the Bedouins are there to help but the deserve to be paid if you accept their help. Wear layers it is chilly in the morning. There are many places for drinks hot and cold. I would not... More

Climbing Mt. Sinai, known as Moses Mountain to the locals, is a wonderful experience. To some it is a pilgrimage, to others the chance to enjoy a beautiful sunrise or sunset in a magical place. For me it was a walk through history, knowing that I was hiking up rock steps built by the Greeks over 1500 years ago. Whatever... More

Make the most of it. Take a camel ride part of the way there. Then climb the many stairs. You'll be rewarded with a great view, a memorable experience, and unforgettable stories.

Oh My God, it was a great exhausting effort during the night, but the view from the top is breathtaking the view of the sun emerging from the bottom of the earth and the feeling that you reached the sky and can touch the stars with your own hand.
