Nubian Monuments of Abu Simbel from Aswan

Embark on a journey to discover the Nubian Monuments of Abu Simbel by visiting the Great Temple of Ramesses II and the Small Temple of Hathor and Nefertari. Don't forget to stop at the visitors center to see the expo about UNESCO's work to save the temples from the rising water.

Day - 1

  • Pick you up from your Aswan accommodation/Nile Cruise or Aswan International Airport to drive south past local villages through the desert to Abu Simbel. 
  • Explore the Nubian Monuments: 3,000 years ago, Ramses II built these monumental temples for himself and his beloved wife, Nefertari as a border sign of Egyptian rule and power. The walls are adorned with scenes of his victory at the Battle of Kadesh. The façade of the Great Temple is 35m high and 30m long. On February 22 and October 22, sunlight penetrates the inner sanctuary to illuminate three statues at the back wall. Only the 4th statue of Ptah, God of the Underworld, remains in darkness. 
  • Visit the elegant Small Temple of Hathor and Nefertari. The only temple build in honor of a Great Wife. Unussual are the statues of Nefertari, which are just as massif as the statues of her husband.
  • In the visitors center, learn about the UNESCO initiative to move both temples to a plateau on the cliffs to protect them from flooding. The temples were dismantled and moved 60m up the cliff than initially stood. 
  • Have lunch in an good local restaurant.
  • Transfer back to your Aswan accommodation.
