Sunrise at Mount Sinai. Trip from Sharm el Sheikh

Sunrise at Mount Sinai. Trip from Sharm el Sheikh

star-5

It's a unique experience to follow the biblical history of the sacred mountain, where it’s believed Moses received the Ten Commandments. Climbing to the summit to watch a spectacular sunrise is worth the tough efforts you do. Our tips: - be ready for a cold weather on the top (ecpecially in winter season, snow, -C temperature) and take with you heavy clothes (gloves, hat, jacket); - you can take hot drinks with you in thermo cup and some snacks. The prices on the mountain are "touristic"; - wear comfortable shoes; - there is option to rent a camel if you are tired, but the last part of the route - 750 steps to the top you have to walk. Attention: we do not pick up at the airport, port or bus stations located on the ring road. The possible pickup locations are any hotel within Sharm-el-Sheikh and bus stations on El Salam road. The possible drop-off locations are any hotel within Sharm-el-Sheikh, airport main entrance gates (300m walking to terminal), bus stations on El Salam road.
