Welcome to the valley of the kings! during our trip we had high expectations for this day, and it was incredible. The Valley of the Kings is the jewel of Egypt. It is incredible to see how this treasures untouched until this days.
We traveled there during the pandemic and we were quite lucky to visit the place by ourselves, with bo crowds, so the experience was even better.
Your ticket allows you to enter in 3 tombs of your choice. We followed the tips of our guide, and we were quite happy with the choice.
This is one of the most incredible places in Egypt. The Valley of the Kings is where the pharaohs were secretly buried. 😊 There is more than 60 pharaohs buried here in differents caves. The entrance fee is 5 euros and give you the right to enter 3 differents caves at your choices. Some caves are more expansive. It completely worth the visit. There is a restaurant and a bar inside the Valley of the Kings where you can buy a bottle of water if you need. It’s completely amazing. 👏🏻
Luxor's Valley of the Kings is perhaps the most interesting commemorative place in Egypt. It is located on the west bank of the Nile River in Luxor. On one side is the vibrant city of Luxor, on the other side is the ridiculous valley of the rock, here is the Pharaoh - ancient The last habitat of the Egyptian rulers, with more than 60 pharaoh's tombs built between the 16th and 11th centuries BC.
The Valley of the Kings is divided into the East Valley and the West Valley. Most important tombs are located in the East Valley. There is only one mausoleum in West Valley open to the public: the tomb of Ittute Ay (the successor to Tutankhamun). There are also many other important tombs in West Valley, including Amenhotep III, but they are still not open to the public during the excavation process.
In numerous tombs, the walls and ceilings are covered with beautifully carved murals, and many patterns and hieroglyphs are still very clear. Although it has been thousands of years, the color is still very beautiful, lifelike, as if you are not entering the tomb, but the exquisite art gallery.
The Valley of the Kings buried almost all the emperors of the ancient Egyptian civilization. From the rise of the new dynasty, the establishment of a new center of faith, to the corruption and betrayal of the high priests, the mass graves began to be tombed, and witnessed an era of departure and decline. The Valley of the Kings is not completely open to tourists, because there are so many mysteries here. Many of the tombs are only used for archaeological research. Even so, the open tombs have already made us feel amazed, complicated and preserved murals. As if to pull you back to that era, telling you about the king's great achievements and the beliefs of the times.
