Long walk uphill
Jan 2015
Nice tomb at the top of the hill. Fantastic view of river valley. Worth the walk. Have been twice. The second time I didn't go up the hill but stayed with the guards and had tea at the rest house. They were very friendly and shared photo's of family with each other.

Quite an interesting site if you are into Ancient Egypt
Mar 2012 • Solo
These rock-cut mastabas are distinctly unusual in appearance - most mastabas are built of stone or mud brick. The interiors contain a number of interesting and unusual scenes, including an enumeration of the monthly phyle (time-share) priesthood set up to service the cult of the tomb owner, and in another tomb a contract whereby the owner delegates his authority to his son. The landscape is also impressive - clearly there was a powerful landslide after a huge earthquake at some point long ago, and the cliff is littered with absolutely enormous boulders that clearly tumbled down as a result.
