Abu Simbel Temples of the King Ramses II, are the famous temples deep south of Egypt where the sun shines and light the King’s and Queen’s statue on their face twice a year, 22nd of October and 22nd of February. The magical temples of Abu Simbel are carved in rock. The huge temples were moved by UNESCO to prevent them from drowning under Nasser Lake that was formed by the High Dam in Aswan.
The tour starts by pick up from your hotel/resident in Aswan and drive to Abu Simbel temples. The drive is about 3 and half hours and we always start the trip at 5am, to allow visiting the temples before the sun is too hot from one point and to watch the sunrise on the way. Also to allow visits to other sites after returning back from Abu Simbel if your visit to Aswan is not a long one.
