You think you are fit until you hike Mt. Sinai. The hike was amazingly beautiful and breathtaking. Make sure you have a good guide with you. Ours was Ahmed, he was very friendly, knowledgeable. And make sure to bring warm jacket. It was quite cold on the top. We went to catch the sunset. There were only four people on... More

You have to take heavy clothe with u as it's very cold up there, even in winter it snows but don't worry u... More

Climbed the mountain from 12 midnight and got back to base at 8am - exhilarating experience especially at day break on seeing the terrain that the dark night does not allow you to see. Wear good climbing shoes and very warm clothes. A good torch and walking stick are a must. Money for coffee and tea as this does not... More

Took this as an excursion from Cairo. The intention was to time things so that a visitor can view sunrise from Mt. Sinai. Unfortunately, troubles with the bus delayed us so that we missed the sunrise and arrived when the overhead sun made things quite hot.Site is interesting in itself but did not get the intended effect.

This is indeed one of the best walks/hikes I have ever done in my life. The nature, the valleys, the mountains, the sunrise on top of the mountain, the locals, everything was perfect.

My husband and I did the hike 2 nights ago and as moderately athletic people in our mid-30s, the hike up was not that challenging during the first half, since it's a gradual climb up, but once we reached the last leg, which is 750 stone stairs, it became a little more challenging, but very feasible. Hiking boots are not... More

25 of us climbed Mount Sinai to catch the sunset. Arrived at the foothill around 230pm, each one on a camel till the final station. The camel ride is about 1 hour. Cost USD30 per person. My first time riding a camel, wonderful experience. Since we climbed in Sept, weather is hot. But as we ascended, we came to cool... More
