Temple of Hatshepsut ,Luxor | Day Trip Path
After breakfast we drive to the West bank of Luxor where we will spend a great day visiting different sites:
1 – Valley of the Gates of Kings or as we call it Valley of the Kings (the ticket will allow us to visit 3 tombs from the tombs open for the public).
2 – The unique temple of Queen Hatshepsut and visit the side temple of Hathor.
- Temple of Hatshepsut reveals one of the most extraordinary reigns in Egyptian history.Stepped platforms, pillared porticoes, and vibrant reliefs set against the desert backdrop make it one of the world’s most striking architectural masterpieces, but perhaps even more noteworthy is the woman who commissioned it.
- Temple of Hatshepsut is located in Deir el Bahari on the west side of the Nile River. There are other projects adjacent to Hatshepsut’s temple. The temple is located in the Valley of the Kings, a sequence of monuments linked for miles in relation to the Nile River. Hatshepsut’s building and landscape project starts to blend into the natural landscape.
3 – The Colossi of Memnon which used to be flanking the first gate of Amonhotep III temple, and then we’ll drive one of the old houses which is serving as a restaurant now, it is the best restaurant in the area. Drive back to the hotel.
