Here you can watch the colorful pharoanic tombs and hear the story of the ancient Egyptian history in Siwa. View of the palm trees is amazing from upwards.

As so often in Egypt you cant take photos in the 4 tombs that are open. They are impressive, but not up to the standard of the Valley of the Kings. I enjoyed my visit and the history that goes with the place

Arrived during the paraying time on Friday so there was no people at all, it was very hot, but worth experiencing it.

Not an activity to do place for anyone, it is a mountain where you will find graveyard for pharaonic colored drawings on walls. Take sun umbrella or hat with you as it is a very sunny place, and drink lots of water.

The area needs to be cleaned to be fit for visitors. Just a little bit of care and explanation of history will make the place worth visiting.
