The pyramid of Menkaure is the smallest of the trio and yet, it stands there in the desert, an imposing structure and a symbol of a great civilization. You can actually descend down into the burial chambers via a steep drop supported by planks. Descend into greatness and the feeling you get once you do will last you a lifetime!

People often overlook this, the smallest of the three pyramids as it's a little up the plateau from it's more impressive brethren but it's a great vantage point for the entire Giza complex with relatively few tourists. Bought a ticket for the interior which was not nearly as interesting as Great Pyramid----you go deep underground to empty chambers garishly lit... More

You should go inside this pyramid if you don´t want to crawl the very long and narrow way to se the inside of the Cheops Pyramid. It is also much cheaper.

Even the smallest of the Giza pyramids is still a wonder to see. Room around and take in the grandeur!

smallest of all pyramids, no real reason to vsit the pyramids as you can not go inside in any case,also once you have visited the khufu pyrmid somehow all others are not worth visiting due to the grandness of khufu pyramid. but well since you are here and have paid for this also do visit, this is the one which...

No words to descibe and so accessible. It can be seen from all over Cairo. One of those Bucket List Items everyone should take care of.

Smallest of the three pyramids of Giza, but no less stunning. There are fewer tourists and you can find yourself wandering around on your own.

Honestly, this was our favorite of the three main pyramids at Giza. It is a bit away from the other two and the Sphinx, and this keeps the crowds down, There's a gash in the side from where Saladin's successor tried to demolish and failed. If you want to go inside, you have to buy the additional tickets at the... More

Yes it is the smallest of the trio of Giza and has been damaged but still as impressive as the rest. We didn't go inside that one but has been told that it is similar to the rest. A bit further from the other two but you can stop here if you have the horse/carriage/car/camel or by foot.
