Not the most interesting of tombs in terms of its walls but who doesn’t want to see King Tut even if you have to pay extra?

It is an a iconic place that you must see on a trip to Egypt. This IS the place where the amazing discovery of King Tutankhamun’s took place. You can read accounts in history books or see programs on TV but this is the genuine place. As a history nerd I just loved it all.

The boy-king Tutankhamun died in 1324 BC at the age of 19, after ruling for about 10 years. Entrance to Tut’s tomb is not included in the admission price. You must purchase a separate ticket at the Visitors Center. Most of the tomb’s treasures are on display in the Cairo Museum, which I’d seen a few days earlier. What’s special here is that the tomb contains the mummy of King Tut! His red quartzite sarcophagus is also on display. The yellow-gold colored walls of the burial chamber contain images of King Tut before the gods. One end wall is decorated with scenes of the pharaoh’s funeral. The opposite wall contains the 12 squatting apes from the Book of Amduat, representing the 12 hours of the night. There was only one other person in the tomb with me. The tomb itself is small and other tombs are more elaborate, and yes, admission is pricey. But for me, it was a highlight of my trip. No way would I travel so far and miss the tomb of the most well-known pharaoh of current times!

To come all the way to Egypt, visit the exhibition in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and then get to the Valley of the Kings in Luxor and not see his tomb and mummy would have been a shame. You must pay an extra fee for admission to this tomb but, let's face it, Tut is one of the most famous Pharaohs. It is a small tomb with impressive paintings and colors. Also got great photos.

Really great experience, beautiful colors and a grand tomb, which is much smaller than you would think. We were there in the early morning and had it to ourselves. Really easy to access. If somebody asks you to take a photo with your camera or try’s to give you a tour, they will want a tip, you can kindly say no thanks.
