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

There is a separate entry fee for this tomb, but well worth it. The steep steps lead to a small (compared to others) chamber. His actual mummy is on display there, as it should be. The original artifacts found in his tomb are on display in the Cairo Museum. The walls and the artistic ability of these ancient Egyptians is... More

The main tomb is closed but a replica has been built next to Howard Carter's house, looks amazingly like the original.

Although not the largest tomb in the VOK- it's still interesting and absolutely worth a visit. To walk down and see the tomb of King Tut in person will make the hairs stand up on your arms.

I was absolutely fascinated here.. I spent ages looking at the scenery and the writing on the walls I can't spell the right word lol.. The steps down were very steep but the history behind this tomb was just great.. The tour guide was helpful and spoke good English but be warned its very very hot.. Take water.. The atmosphere...
