"Pyramids of Dahshur" Dahshur by MalenaN

Dahshur Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 47 photos

In Dahshur you will find the world’s oldest proper pyramid (not a step pyramid).
The area has been in a military zoon and it is only the latest 10 years tourists have been allowed to visit the site. Many tours visit Giza, Saqqara and Memphis, but not Dahshur. They really miss something, but it is good for the ones who visit, as they will have the place almost for themselves. When I visited there was no one trying to sell you things, offer you a camel ride or asking if you need a guide. There were only the police in front of the pyramid and very few tourists.

    The Bent Pyramid really does stand out as different!

      I liked my visit to Dahshur better than the one to the pyramids in Giza!

    Really off the beaten Egypt path! I won't be there anyway. It was very interesting to learn about 55-44 degrees pyramid! Though I don't believe that pyramids are so old... But it's another story, may be I'll write about it on my own pages in May.

    Mysterious and exotic place! The world’s oldest proper pyramid (not a step pyramid) is a must for me now! Great idea with renting a car with driver!
