    Beautiful Tomb to visit in the Valley of the Kings
    This was of the tombs included in the Entrance fee of 400 EGP at the Valley of the Kings. Carvings on the walls and ceilings are intricate and colorful. Of course, there are no mummies inside this tomb. Stayed about 5 minutes and walked out to visit other tombs. Quite crowded here! Difficult to take selfies here!

    One of the best tombs in the Valley of the Kings
    My wife and I visited the Valley of the Kings as part of our cruise of the Nile River this past December. Our entry ticket allowed us to visit three tombs. Out tour director suggested that one of the tombs to visit be the Tomb of Ramses IV. It was a good selection. The colors were very vibrant and the drawings and hieroglyphics on the walls and ceilings were very intricate. We thought it was one of the best tombs in the Valley of the Kings.

    Full of decoration
    KV 2 Ramses IV is a corridor tomb with colourful paintings and sunken reliefs along the walls, ceilings and pillars of all of its 90 meters in length. One of the corridors has a decorated barrel vaulted ceiling. The burial chamber is the only room with side chambers and also contains an enormous sarcophagus under a colourful ceiling decorated with a picture of the goddess Nut. You can visit it as part of the three tombs included in the Valley of the Kings entry fee and our guide suggested it as our second picks (ie tombs 4-6) to visit.

Ramses IV took over the throne when his father was killed, and he ruled from about 1155-1159 BC. It is the first tomb as you enter the valley. It was packed with a tour group when I went (not pleasant, one of my friends immediately turned around to leave when people jostled against us). Overall, the paintings have deteriorated, but it is the only tomb to contain text of the Book of Nut. Also unique is the image of goddess Nut swallowing the sun which travels through her body to be reborn at dawn. Ramses IV empty sarcophagus is in the burial chamber.

This tomb was one of 3 that you could enter free included in the entry price to the valley of the kings. It is a lovely, well decorated tomb. Well worth looking at.

You can take pictures if you purchase a camera pass, or alternatively, you can use your mobile phone for no charge, but don't let the locals take photos of you unless you are willing to give them a tip.

One of the most colorful tombs in the Valley of Kings. The original paintings remain intact and there are also lots of hieroglyphics on the walls. It's amazing that most of the paintings are still intact even after thousands of years. Very humbling experience. Do not miss this tomb.

This Tomb is a must see in the valley of the kings. Beautiful , vibrant colors with detailed writings. It is a long steep walk into the chamber, but there are handrails and a sloped wooden walkway. Good shoes a must . Descent down is easy, going back up can take a bit of time if you are not in the best of shape or did not wear the correct shoes.

This was one of several tombs open to the public during our group tour. A true wonder of the ancient world and a must do in Egypt. Beware of the colorful locals posing for pictures or asking to take your picture with your camera. They will ask for a small tip. I did not mind it but others did.

I visited the Valley of the Kings as part of a tour group and the guide suggested Tomb of Ramses IV, along with Tomb of Merenptah and Tomb of Ramses IX.

This tomb is by far the most spectacular of the three that I visited. The tomb and wall decorations are mostly intact. The hieroglyphics on the wall depicts scenes from the Litany of Ra, Book of Caverns, Book of the Dead, Book of Amduat and the Book of the Heavens. There’s a relatively short walk from the entrance down into the burial chamber and many of the hieroglyphics remain intact all the way down and retaining the colours (probably restored). Compared to the other tombs that I visited, this one was well lit, which lets you see the decorations and colours well.

This tomb has been known about since antiquity and you can even see some of the Coptic graffiti left by previous visitors.

Best of the three I visited.
