  Valley of the Kings

On the left bank of the Nile on a very isolated spot you will find the vast Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. It's here that the kings & queens have been buried in vaults in the rocks. The graves are beautifully decorated with frescoes and hieroglyphs. It's not just graves, it's more like big underground rooms.

Notes:
1) If you want to make pictures in the graves you will have to buy a license!
2) You will need a full day if you want to visit all the graves and the Temple of Hatchepsut.

Directions: west bank of the Nile

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
