  1. Imtiaz Ahmed

    I recently had an incredible adventure visiting Mount Sinai. During my trip, I saw many historical sites such as the place of the golden calf, Moses Well, burning bush, and St. Catherine Monastery. Hiking up Moses Mountain was quite a challenge as it stands at 2250m above sea level and requires starting the ascent at night. However, the African night sky was breathtaking, making the journey even more magical. The final 752 steps were the most difficult, but the sunrise at the top of the mountain made it all worthwhile. It was indeed an unforgettable experience.

    This is a spiritual cum adventure excursion. Once you reach the monastery of St. Catherine, you begin your climb to the mountain of Moses. En route up, you will take a rest in two places and reach the peak right before sunrise. What a spectacular view you get of the Sinai Mountains and then after feasting your eyes on the same, you come to the monastery of St. Catherine and have breakfast. Post your breakfast, you visit the monastery. You will have your guide and then you can take photographs. You get to see the relics of St. Catherine and the bush of the Burning bush. Next, you visit the cemetery and the crypt of St. Trifonab. Besides all these, you also get to see the oldest mosaics, icons, and the famous Sinai Library. Having completed the tour you depart for return to Sharam El Seikh.
