    The trip to this place is on the spiritual bent of mind. Note that if you do not want to go, you can opt-out of it. But why should you? When there is the golden opportunity to have a bit of an adventure by climbing the mountain top, then come on let’s go! You will be picked from your hotel a day before from Cairo at around 2 Pm. Your vehicle transports you to the direction of St. Catherine which takes six hours to reach. On arrival, you check-in at your hotel and spend the night there after a delicious dinner. The next day the guide will pick you up from the hotel at 2 AM to go the Moses Mountain. Here not only will you have a guide but a Bedouin Guide as well. While climbing we will be making two stops and take a rest. But once you get to the top you will enjoy a beautiful sunrise. From there one can get a 360-degree view of the Sinai Mountains. Feast your eyes on such a grandeur! Seems like that the sky is an open palette and the creator is busy playing with a riot of colors. Then you come down and visit the St. Catharine Monastery. The monastery visit will let you have a glimpse of the relics of St. Catherine, the bush of the Burning Bush, the crypt which lies under the Chapel of St. Trifonab, the oldest mosaics, and the very famous Sinai Library. So much to see in just one place. Phew!!! Takes a lot of time and lots of walking. So always ensure that your clothes and footwear both are comfortable. No one will want a sore foot when you are on vacation. Right? So enjoy and let your spirits free!

    Кто хочет встретить восход солнца в горах еще и в Каире? Мне кажется многие. Я одна из таких людей, кто приобрел данный тур и ни разу не пожалела. После поездки я ощутила себя новым человеком. Эта атмосфера так заряжает энергией, много переосмысляешь. Если честно сил на Монастырь осталось немного ,но после включенного в стоимость завтрака ,стала готова к новым свершениям!
