This Pyramid still has some of the cover stones so it is the most photographed. There is nothing like spending some time here.

This pyramid along with the other two are truly phenomenal , it is truly a bucket list item. The views are spectacular and it is truly everything you think it is and more. There are camels available to ride along the area and TONs of salespeople I would advise caution, but it is truly a lovely place and no real... More

I just saw this from a little distance, I think but a lovelier pyramid there was not. The day was very warm but windy! I liked the combination.

Toured the pyramids and Sphinx with a group of friends from October 25 thru 27th and it was an awesome sight to behold. We had an excellent guide who carefully took us through the different periods of Egyptian civilization. I intend to return in the future to Luxor and Alexandria. Egypt is a great location for students of history.

This Pyramid will leave you awestruck.... how timeless periodic erosion has led to eroding of the exterior cover of the structure.... its as mammoth as the Giza... and together these structures look outstanding.... the Light and Sound show (in the evening) of the Pyramid of Giza and Khafre is sooooo mesmerising that one should not miss it... at any cost.....

We visited the Pyramid, as it stands next to the Great Pyramid of Giza. Amazing to see ! Surely deserves to be among the 'bucket list'.

Paying for entry of this beautiful site is not enough. Prepare for any local claiming to be 'security' to ask you to see your ticket and then ask you to pay in order to proceed. One of them even shoved me and yelled for the police to try to scare me into tipping him. I didn't bite and after nearly... More

Khafre's Pyramid is built on high ground and hence, although it is smaller in size to the Great Pyramid of Cheops, it looks bigger than the great Pyramid!

This pyramid is smaller than the Great Pyramid but it might seem bigger because is was built on higher ground. Unlike the Great Pyramid, you cannot enter this one but it still worth seeing.

Unlike Kaufu's where you could climb on it and enter it. The 2nd pyramid is for looking only. Better example of the entrance than any of the others we visited.
