You have the option to climb Mt Sinai by yourself or take a camel almost to the top. I did neither as my knees are not great. The top section of the climb is not easy, then you have to come down. I was happy just to see this magnificent work of nature.

Very disappointed that I wasn't in shape enough to climb Mt Sinai when I was there for the sunrise. What an experience everyone that did climb had. Can't even explain the experience in words. A must to make sure the monastery has open hours when you go to see the burning bush, which is huge now, and the well where... More

Wooooow is considered underestimating such place. So hard to climb. A little dangerous, good adventure. Wonderful feeling when reaching the top another one watching sunrise, another one when reaching the bottom of the mountain again.

It wasn't very easy to climb, but feeling you felt during this climbing and when you saw sunrise on top was incredible. It was great!

Beautiful place. You need good stamina and self motivation to get there. And, if you want to ride a camel for a half trip (coz you can't climb the what so called 700 stairs with camel, so you need to do it with your own feet), you have to trust to your camel. It knows the road better than you.... More

To see the sunrise from Mount Sinai is an amazing experience worth the 700 steps going up and the same going down. The climbs up to the top is tough but worth it, but make sure you are well equipped to overcome the freezing temperatures.

Just came back from Mount Sinai or Moses Mountain as the locals call it. We were so lucky as the weather was perfect and it was full moon! I walked all the way up just with the light from the moon which made my experience very special. This place is historical and spiritual so if you are around Sharm el... More

Climbing Mount Sinai is a rewarding experience. I took the camel ride 2/3rd . Picturesque view all over, echo was good and soothing - so be ready to freak out :). Overall it was a divine visit.
