Visiting Luxor & Surrounds

Where to go in Visiting Luxor & Surrounds


List of regions

Valley of the Kings

The Valley of the Kings, on the west bank of the Nile, was the burial site of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs. It was from here that they began their journey to the next life, or so they believed.


Karnak temple lies on the eastern bank of the Nile, a few kilometres from Luxor. It's the largest pharaohnic monument in Egypt after the Pyramids of Giza, a vast and well-preserved complex built over a period of a thousand years. Among the contributing pharaohs were Thutmosis I, Seti I, Hatshepsut …


Luxor marks the end point for Nile cruises from Aswan and so travellers often arrive in the city by ship. And what could be a better way to reach Luxor than drifting gently down the great waterway on a felucca.
