"take a look at Abu Simbel. ..." Egypt Favorite Tip by swesn

Egypt General: 631 reviews and 622 photos


Favorite thing: take a look at Abu Simbel. It's touristy but I think it's worth the effort to fly there. The carvings are gorgeous. And think of how they sliced up the mountains into blocks in order to move them to this present location (because of the formation of Lake Nasser)... Yep.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
