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

Great guide, from a smoker 40+ was a challenge but I did it. Had options for camels too. Worth going once. Being American the trip there was an ordeal but the Egyptian army kept us safe and even escorted us for the last 100 miles which delayed the trip but once we got passed that was good times for all.

So my mom who is riding a camel. The air is very cool, surrounded by rocks were outstanding. I did not get... More

The climb is very tiring and exhausting, for me at some point I didn't wana go any further, but for others it seemed quite bearable. However, it's better to climb up during the night away from the sun heat and the sky sight was very beautiful, it's hard to enjoy lots of things while climbing up though. Once you reach... More

The hike itself took 3hours. On average this is how long it takes people to climb Mt Sinai. Some of my friends did it in 2hours though. It just depends on your fitness levels. I highly recommend ascending the mountain during the night and watching the sunrise. Truly amazing. The Bedouin who live/work on the Mt are welcoming people. Most... More
