  Walking through the monastery
by swisssinai

115 km from Nuweiba at an altitude of 1550 metres, lies the monastery of St Catherine at the head of a valley surrounded by the towering mountains of Sinai.

Open daily from 8 a.m. to midday except Fridays and Sundays. No entrance charge but there is a US$ 3 charge per person to enter the St Catherine national park.

A fascinating place well worth visiting ( despite unfortunately the crowds ).

Directions: 115 km from Nuweiba. Bus at 8 a.m.. Limousine about US$ 120 return including waiting time, taxi half that.
