Take a day tour to :
the High Dam,
an engineering miracle was constructed between 1960 and 1970.
It aimed to increase economic production by further regulating the annual river flooding and providing storage of water for agriculture, and later, to generate hydroelectricity.
The dam has had a significant impact on the economy and culture of Egypt. Then, you will head to
The Unfinished Obelisk,
which shows the techniques used by the ancient Egyptians to cut obelisks.
This obelisk is believed to belong to Queen Hatshepsut, one of the rulers of the 18th dynasty and the royal wife of king Tuthmosis II, who owns Al Deir El-Bahari temple in the eastern bank of Luxor. The unfinished obelisk is the largest known ancient obelisk, located in the northern region of the stone quarries of ancient Egypt in Aswan, Egypt.
It is unknown which pharaoh created this structure.
It is nearly one third larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected.
If finished it would have measured around 42 m and would have weighed nearly 1,200 tons. Lunch meal will be served at a local restaurant in Aswan. Your final stop is the majestic
Philae in Greek or Pilak in ancient Egyptian, meaning ‘the end,’ defined the southern most limit of Egypt. It was begun by Ptolemy II and completed by the Roman Emperors. The Temple was dedicated to the goddess Isis, the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus. These three characters dominate ancient Egyptian culture and their story possesses all the drama of a Shakespearian tragedy. Drive back to your hotel in Aswan
