Pick up from any hotel within Cairo or Giza. Trip to Saint Catherine overland, check-in hotel, early wake up for hiking mount Sinai to see the sunrise, morning visit to Sainte Catherine monastery. Transfer back to Cairo and drop off at the hotel.
The Trip starts from Cairo: (We pick up from any hotel within Cairo or Giza, or any location or address in Cairo or in Giza). The trip by our tourist air-conditioned van takes around 7 hours. The town of St. Katherine is in the Sinai peninsula in Egypt at an elevation of about 1600 meters from sea level, at the foot of the Sinai High Mountains. Up to a thousand visitors come to visit St. Katherine’s Monastery, the oldest continuously inhabited monastery in the world built on the site where Moses (Prophet Musa) talked to God in the miracle of the Burning Bush, and to climb Mt. Sinai (the Biblical Mt. Horeb, known locally as Jebel Musa) where Moses has received the Ten Commandments. Arrive at Saint Catherine village, check-in and have dinner, and maybe a couple of hours sleep in the hotel, climb the mountain at dawn, visit the Monastery in the morning and return to the resort. St. Catherine and Mt. Sinai can be visited independently as well, avoiding the busy times on the mountain and discovering the rest of what this unique region offers.
