"Abu Simbel" Aswan Off The Beaten Path Tip by Sharrie
Aswan Off The Beaten Path: 38 reviews and 101 photos
TEMPLE OF ABU SIMBEL is sensational! It lies about 175 miles from Aswan after the Egyptian government undertook a major reconstruction (in association with UNESCO) in 1968 & moved the two speos of Ramesses II & Nefertari to the current site. The gigantic rock was cut into sections, dismantled & then reconstructed on the summit of the Libyan mountains which overlooks the Nile River.
If you are hardpressed for time, take a flight there. This is one sight you shouldn't miss! I think it's even more impressive than the Pyramids of Giza!
