Bent pyramid

The Bent Pyramid is the first pyramid in Egypt. It started in 55 degrees, but half way up the 105 metres it was discovered that the pyramid was unstable and was changed the angle to 44 degrees. You can clearly see the change in the surface lines.

The Red Pyramid

The Red Pyramid was built in an angle of 43 degrees after the "failure of the "beny" pyramid. As such, it became the first proper pyramid. The The Red Pyramid is the third largest pyramid in Egypt.

This pyramid was openned in late 1990's and there were a few crowds, if any. So it is nice to go into the burial chamber without a heavy human traffic along the passage. (as see in pic). The inside chamber is nice and there is some wooden staircases where you need to climb (see pic).

Entrance fee to the area is 20 pounds. There also is a fee for the car of 2 pounds. From the entrance the road leads to the Red Pyramid.
