Moses Trekking Tour Itinerary
NOTE: Before going to the Egyptian museum this is the best time to take a break for lunch (not included in price) or visit to Papyrus Gallery (included in tour price).
In the afternoon visit the Egyptian museum. We finally go to the legendary Khan El Khalili bazaar district to do some shopping. Return to the hotel and overnight in Cairo.
We trek from Sheikh’s on foot to Abu Giffa Pass. This is a man-made part of the road to the ruins of the Palace of Abbas Basha. We then stop at the top of the pass for a north-eastern view looking out over the El Raha valley, new village of El Millga and see an old tiger trap. We then descend into the Tubug valley until we reach Wadi Shagg. All along the way there are beautiful gardens.
It is strictly forbidden to enter, unless invited. Along Wadi Shagg there are waterholes and pools, giant boulders, and ruins of buildings from the Byzantine period.
We continue to Wadi Ghazna where we make our way at an easy pace west to the crossroad of the Zawatin-Naqb Gibal. Here we will find a group of ancient olives trees. The local tribesmen claim that these trees were planted by the founder of the tribe. This is our first night stop. (Should we have more time, we may go on through Naqb Gibal towards Gibal Valley, where there are copses and wells, and stop there to shorten the next day’s hiked.)
The view from these summits is of primeval beauty. Please note that we recommend this hike for hikers who are fit together with an experienced guide. It is from here that we will pass through the only fresh water spring, Ein Nagila. Afterwards, we will begin to descent to our next night camp through Naqb Bahariya to a Farsh El Romana.
Should we have more time, we will visit Bab el Dunya to enjoy the view to the south-west and ruins of a Byzantine monastery before making Camp the second night.
The path which has a splendid view at the top at 2304 meters, is paved and easy to climb. This panoramic is one of the most breathtaking in the High Mountain range. We pcik our gear as we ascend up and continue down on a paved path through Wadis Zuweitin and Tubug towards Abu Giffa Pass. From here continue to our starting point, El Milga village.
Then transfer back to Cairo. Check in to hotel and overnight in Cairo.
