Mount Sinai

Saint Catherine
We chose a private tour with driver, guide for the trip & bedouin guide for the climb, but there are plenty of group tours available so search before you come & choose what suits you best.
The sunrise hikes are crowded at the top and coming down can be tricky as you are descending the rocky steps with a lot of other people of different fitness levels.

Be sure to put some sunblock on, the Temple has been rebuilt somewhat but even so it is incredible and there is so much to see and learn, amazing history, again I would recommend a tour guide to visit here.
The temple is massive, and yet it is dwarfed by a basin of towering red cliffs, crowned by the magnificent blue Egyptian sky and overlooking the desert, and, far off, the green strip of the Nile Valley.
