One of the last tombs in the valley

Nice sets of religious scenes and a beautiful ceiling. The paintings are exquisite. Easy tomb to walk through, not much change in elevation.

I was told to go and see this as part of my tour of 5 tombs all in one ticket and I was not disappointed at all, go early as you can to avoid lots of tourists, guides are not allowed to go in so get all your info before you go inside. Well worth a trip

If you like Egyptian history you will love the sense you get inside this tomb. Amazing to think of what went on before us. We have visited before on another Nile cruise but never fail to be mesmerised by all that you see and feel inside the tomb.

First look at the model in the visitor center to see the extraordinary number of tombs so far discovered and how deep they they plunge into the earth.
