"Siwa - Mountain Of The Dead" Egypt Off The Beaten Path Tip by travelinxs

Egypt Off The Beaten Path: 250 reviews and 315 photos


Also known as the Hill Of The Dead and Ridge Of The Mummified (...starting to sound like something out of Hollywoods 'The Mummy' !!). Many XXV1 Dynasty and Ptolemaic tombs reused by the Romans. Four still have murals or inscriptions. These are locked nowadays but a custodian nearby will open it free (for a little backsheesh, of course!!)

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
