Getting here through picturesque Egyptian countryside is part of the experience, and it's well worth the journey.
The pyramid is being restored/reinforced and so there is a great deal of scaffolding over parts of the surface but this does not detract from the overall appearance of this historically important structure and its surrounding ceremonial site.
It is the nearby attractions, including other pyramids, especially that of Teti, and the many mastaba tombs, which make the total site such a worthwhile and interesting destination. Inside Teti's tomb is much better than those at Giza.
This is a relatively quiet place to visit.There are fewer of the persistent touts that at times mar visits to other sites, and there are fewer tourists and tour groups here as well.
