His body is there

It's worth a visit because his body is there. Everything else is at the museum, but one of his sarcophagi is still there and it is absolutely beautiful to see in person

This tomb truly humbled me and I stood in awe at being able to view the mummy of King Tutenkhamun. The amount of clear drawing in this tomb is a sight to behold. No photography is allowed to preserve the area. One for the bucket list.

One must first visit this tomb to see where the king rests and then one must visit the Museum in Cairo to see the amount of recoveries made from this tomb. Incredible it is but one has to see to believe what life after death meant for that great civilization....

It was no 62 of valley of the King and it needs separate ticket entry . Try to study about symbols and story about pharaohs before going there . Also you can download some application in ios about gods of Egypt .

Everybody knows king Tut, so a visit to his tomb is almost a must. It is accessible via two short wooden stairs. The walls of the sarcophagusroom are very well decorated in vivid colours depicting several scenes from life in the hereafter. Unfortunately a false floor has been built preventing the sight of the whole sarcophagus. Nevertheless one can admire... More

Albeit there being a seperate entry ticket to this tomb which costs as much as visiting three other tombs together the Tomb of the boy king Tutankhamun holds special significance as it was the first tomb ever to be found intact by archeologists, even though this is one of the smallest tombs ever found it provides an insight into the...

You climb down narrow stairs to the smallest tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Anyway this the most breathtaking experience there. In the tomb lies namely the mummy of the young Pharaoh Tutankhamun.

visited here a couple years ago along with valley of the Kings. Back when we visited you had to buy a separate ticket for Tutankhuman tomb, as it was not included in the general admission ticket to valley of the kiings. The tomb itself is very small, in consideration to those around it but you must see it. It is... More
