Serabit El Khadem is a remote area of the Sinai desert where people are still living the traditional Bedouin life. We will spend the night in a Bedouin Camp enjoying the amazing view of the evening sunset.
Leaving Dahab at 6.00 a.m. to drive to the temple at Serabit El Khadem – mountain top ruins of an ancient Pharaonic and Hexus temple, and the namesake for the area. In Pharaonic times, the temple was dedicated to Hathor, an ancient mother-goddess especially associated with the arts. She was the goddess of the turquoise miners who discovered the rich veins of Serabit around 3500 BC.
Lunch in the village. Afternoon walks/drive around the area including El Dura (sandstone formation), Sheikh Habus (burial site and gathering place), and the Muzra Bedouin garden and guest house.
Dinner & overnight
Morning drive through the wide wadi to Hamayir – a granite and sandstone rock formation with a high dune, Acacias in the wadi, and reservoirs of rainwater.
Continue to the Forest of Pillars – lava pillars left standing after wind and water eroded the surrounding sandstone. Lunch.
Finally through Wadi Siyh to the road at Wadi Fieran.
Around sunset, return to Dahab.
