How to Do Hiking in Egypt


Hiking is a good reward you may want to give to your soul, but it’s also tough and sometimes challenging if not to some extent dangerous. This post is meant to provide some practical tips to make your hiking experience as enjoyable and safe as you wish it to be- with some guidelines related to preserving the mountains ecosystem and natural beauty.

Bear in mind that the following tips are basically associated with hiking terrains in Egypt in general, and the Graceful mountainous region and natural protectorate of St. Katherine in particular.

Abydos

This location hosts one of the most unusual temples from ancient Egypt (Arabic: أبيدوس). It has one of the most preserved and --in some people's opinion-- the most impressive temple in Egypt, it is a must see. It's located in Markaz elBalyana, Sohag Governorate (Arabic: مركز البلينا - محافظة سوهاج) on the western border of the Nile and the temple is at the desert directly on the verge of the fertile land. The location is very near the border of Qena Governorate.

Kharga Oasis

As the closest of the oases to the Nile Valley, Al-Kharga used to have the unenviable role as a place of banishment for mischievous Nile Valley citizens. Its remote location, punishing summer heat and destructive winds mean the oasis was synonymous with misery and exile. It may seem strange then that its chief town, Al-Kharga, was chosen as the capital of the New Valley Governorate in the 1950s.
