We took a 3 day cruise on the Prince Abbas, and from beginning to end, the lake was just breathtaking. There are virtually NO people anywhere. No developments, no jet skis, no speed boats, just water and desert and ancient monuments occasionally. It is so...More

You can get a good perspective of the Lake from here without doing a cruise, though I would've liked to see crocodiles. Such a Vast expanse, it would be hard to cover all of it.

We explored and motored around the Modern Marvel - Lake Nasser below the New Dam. It’s fascinating how the previously rocky walled Nile Valley of Nubian Egypt was transformed into a monumental lake by the dam. Interesting.

If you live in a greener full of water country Lake Nasser is nothing special, but for a desert country like Egypt this is a big thing, huge achievement for sure. If you are in a guided tour it’s good to check it out.
