Temple of Abu Simbel Off The Beaten Path: 13 reviews and 26 photos
We were told that on a return way from Abu Simbel to Aswan we should necessarily see a mirage. I was very surprised as considered that a mirage as the optical phenomenon was similar to a rainbow. If a rainbow accompanies with a rain under certain conditions a mirage accompanies with absence of a rain in desert. I thought, that certain conditions were also necessary for appearance of a mirage. However our guide was right! We have really seen the mirage!
Unfortunately the bus has not stopped off and we had to observe this miracle of nature during driving. Therefore pictures and video haven't turned out successful. However having looked attentively it is possible to see a thin strip of "water" between hills and deserted plain.
