We did this tour. Pretty miserable experience. The climb is long and boring in the dark. A camel ride for $20us makes it a little more interesting because you can admire the stars as you climb. The ascent requires a local guide who constantly sets...More

You have got to do this. Climbed Mount Sinai (also called Moses Mountain). 700 metre vertical climb to the top. We chose a private tour with driver, guide for the trip & bedouin guide for the climb, but there are plenty of group tours available...More

The mountain sits behind St. Catherine's Monastery and is a three hour drive from Taba or Sharm El Sheikh. Many tourists hike the path up the mountain the history says Moses walked on. It’s a stoic peak and part of the St. Catherine’s adventure.

Some of the group climbed Mount Sinai. The climb was during the night, but the view was great. My view was from St. Catherine's Monastery and it was amazing.

Sunrise from the top was extremely beautiful. Landscapes are adorable. You need hike approx. 3 hours to reach to the top. It was my first hiking experience at night. We were surrounded by camels and native Berbers. Recommended!
