We know the historical significance of this place and the respect we feel in ourselves. This place is one of the most important sacred places in the Jewish, Christian and Islamic religions. Just climbing requires a little preparation, it needs to have fitness. But it...More

Climbing Mt. Sinai -- in the dark was made easier by riding a camel to the mid-point. There are still 850 steps after that. Words fail me to describe the beauty of the Sinai at sunrise.

This is not the most interesting hike in Sinai, however it a must-visit landmark and the views from the top are spectacular. The way people usually conquer Mt Sinai (called Gabal Musa or 'Mount Moses' in Arabic), is by hiking up at night to reach...More

When and if you are able, go hike Mt. Sinai. They do offer camel ride until certain point, but after that, you are on your own. Depends on your convinience, the camel ride can either hurt you or make you sleepy on the way up....More

Not sure since we stayed in St Catherine. (Which I would not advise). Consider staying around the Taba border. I understand the drive in is about 2 hours. You will want to be on the mountain. Around 1-130 am to catch... More

is it safe to visit mount Sinai at this time? I was warned by a guide in Cairo not to go there, but I've always wanted to.

I don't think you will have any problems. Just make sure you go with a well established tour company. The road check there is very strict.
