From Sharm: Mount Moses Trekking, Sunrise & Monastery Visit

1. From Sharm: Mount Moses Trekking, Sunrise & Monastery Visit

You will be picked up from your hotel in Sharm El Sheikh city between 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM. Then you will travel in an air-conditioned vehicle for around 4 hours to reach the Moses Mountain. When you arrive at Mount Sinai you will start your trekking tour to the sacred place where the Prophet Moses received the 10 commandments. Reach 2,285 meters by climbing up 750 steps, strolling through the night (approx 2-3 hours depending on the customers). Depending on the performance of the group, you may arrive at the summit earlier than expected. This will give you a chance to really relax and marvel at the rising sun slowly scattering across the mountains in all its splendor. While gazing at the sunrise, snap awesome photos or pray if you wish to, then begin the descent back down. Remember, it will take around 2 hours to reach the bottom. Enjoy some time to rest after the long trail and then have breakfast.  Next, visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. Catherine's Monastery. Browse through the old manuscripts displayed in the library and icons excavated from the Vatican. It is the oldest functioning Christian monastery in the world situated on the Sinai Peninsula along with Monastery of Saint Anthony which is located across the Red Sea in the desert of South Cairo. After you've finished touring the monastery, you can relax on the drive back to your hotel in Sharm El Sheikh.

What people are saying about Dahab

It was an amazing experience, shuttle from hotel to main coach was smooth and journey onwards through the desert and mountains toward St Catherine City went well with a stop mid way, although dark for us at this point still lots to see of the desert and mountains. Eventually you get to the first point where you can buy hats, coats, gloves etc it does get very cold on the mountain. When you get to the Monastery area there is security and then you are on your journey up the mountain. You can take a camel or walk to the bottom of the steps, we walked. There are frequent rest stops with hot drinks for sale, which the excellent bedouin guides stop at to allow the party to catch up. I didn't realise until coming back down that the majority of these have toilet facilities if you ask (at a cost of 5LE) the final leg of the steps is the most difficult, but still achievable by almost anyone with enough time to catch a breath. Amazing views and experience, I would 100% recommend to anyone!!

Well organised, very good communication throughout. Our guide Jamil was very attentive to all of his group, making sure everyone was ok. Although we didn't find the walk overly challenging, some people and younger children may find it difficult, very cold at the summit, recommend good warm clothing, definitely worth the trek for a spectacular sunrise, the short visit to the Monastery at the end was interesting.

The tour was in Russian in the beginning but we asked to be also in English and then it was all good. It was quite cold to swim now in February but the rest of the activities were perfect

We made this trip with guide Ali, and it was awesome. Ali is very knowledgeable and funny. The view from the top of the mountain is amazing.

Very special place, definitely do if you come to Sharm or Dahab!
