The tomb of the only female pharaoh in Egypt. It is rich with history - It is an amazing site and a lot to learn about this particular era and some gender politics!

This beautiful temple which our Egyptian guide told us was pronounced Hat ship suit, which everbody thought was funny, but we then remembered the name after visiting dozens of temples. Very colourful temple with a great history.

Seeing this temple from afar as you arrive to the site is breath taking. Split over three levels, it's an easy climb and a pleasure to visit. There is so much to see and learn. This is definitely a must see.
