Owner description: Supplying water and electricity to all of Egypt, this impressive two-mile dam was a 1960s feat of engineering.

It didn't take long to stop off here but it wasn't that exciting. Without it, the people of Egypt would suffer but I didn't really need to get off the bus to have a look.

We went by bus to the dam, and I admit to being very dissapointed. I've seen the Hoover dam, and hoped for sa similar spectacular view. There wasn't one. Yes you do see lake Nasser stretching into the distance, but I wanted to see the dam.

The shear size of this place has to impress you. What they did to build this thing is amazing and makes you feel small standing there. The road is busy and there isnt much to see so you dont need but a few minutes there to read the signs and see the views. It isnt too far from Aswan.

Even if you are not technically minded, Aswan Dam is still pretty amazing once you hear the story of why and how it was built and then see the results. The maps and charts really help to get a good idea of the work they had to undertake and the fact they've moved a lot of monuments so that this could be achieved is miraculous.

It was interesting to visit the dam and to hear and read how it was built. You dont need a long time here but there are some spectacular views over the Lake.
