Valley of the Kings, Luxor: 132 reviews and 222 photos
This is the pharaoh's were buried in hopes they would return to their Gods in the afterlife. King Tutankhamen tomb was found here in the 1920's almost untouched.
We had gone early in the morning because otherwise going in the afternoon is very hot, the shade is only bearable! Our ticket included entrance into the Valley of the Kings and then you could choose up to 3 tombs to go into. Not all the tombs are open every day, as I soon found out because I wanted to go into the tomb KV5 (belongs to one of the son's of Ramesses II) because I had watched a documentary on before going over to Egypt.
I ended up going into Ramses I, IV and IX tombs. When were there in Ramses IV tomb the lights went out. It was a complete black out. We were deeper into the tomb, not close to the entrance. There is still paint on the hieroglyphs in the tombs.
I also went into the tomb of King Tutankhamen for an extra 100LE.
