Hi there

I'm afraid you can't compare the two, they are totally different experiences, so it really depends on what you are looking for, neither one is better, just different. Mount Sinai is far more strenuous and takes a lot longer, both are beautiful, in their own way. I prefered Mount Sinai, others might prefer the Coloured Canyon, others have said thet the White Canon is better than the Coloured Canyon, so I'm afraid it's subjective.

Thanks for the reply Barbarah.

I am looking for lovely scenery and a unforgetable experience. The Mount Sinai climb attracted me because of the sunrise and the diff colours you witness. However, I don't know much about the coloured canyon.

Have done the Mount Sinai trip and can say that it was truly amazing. Very hard work but well worth every step (the last 750 being the worst!!). If you do this trip then please descend the "hard way", over 3500 steps to the bottom and the views are just incredible, words cannot describe it!!

Just a few pictures of this excellent trip!!

Added bonus is St Catherine's Monastry.

Yes, don't come down the easy way (the way you go up) the scenery is far better coming down the hard way, it's also quicker! Don't wear any expensive jewellery when you climb - long story. No visa required, but you will need to take your passport with you.

Hi,

Have been to both but not climbed Mt Sinai.

Totally different sites & I really enjoyed both for their individuality.

I have only a few pics from the Coloured Canyon (like a mini-Petra) as I went before I had my digi camera, but lots from St Catherine's monastery & the environs.

Mount Sinai & St. Catherine’s Monastery (didn’t climb mountain due to ankle injury)
