Many travel agencies offer attractive and affordable Egypt Tours packages, but some travelers want to find out more about the destination they are going to. While many passengers just want to chill beside the hotel pool or on some beautiful sandy beach in luxury resorts, there is still the minority of those who want an active holiday. Pyramids and Nile are something you should definitely see in this country, and we will present them in a slightly different way.
Pyramids are fantastic buildings, in many ways – as part of a long past, what they represented at the time and the way they survived to this day. When you look at these magnificent constructions, it’s incredible that they were designed and made by humans. Somehow we consciously forget the fact that Egyptian civilization was one of the most powerful and most developed in that period. Science, culture, and art flourished in it, and both the life and death of its rulers were monumental. When we mention pyramids, Giza first comes to mind. Those who want to feel the spirit of ancient Egypt, start their journey right here. Experienced tourists think that his destination, located next to Cairo, is overcome. Those to whom this complex represents déjà vu will ask for more and discover other exciting locations, like the Valley of Kings.
Not all pyramids were monumental at that time; many of them have been ruined during the past millennia. Despite the widespread belief and what history taught us, the construction of the pyramid was not trusted to slaves. Well-paid workers, architects, and artists who designed the interior and exterior design were hired on these “projects.” The hieroglyphs painted inside pyramids were used only for these purposes – they were never an official Egyptian letter.
All pyramids in Egypt (over hundred of them remain preserved much or less) are located on the west coast of the Nile River. The old Egyptians believed that in the west – the side on which the sun sets – represents the place where the deceased souls leave the find eternal peace. The architects from the period of Ancient Egypt positioned every pyramid in a precisely determined position, using accurate and detailed calculations, so they don’t make shadows to each other. It was believed that every ruler was “the sun” of his time, and any of them shouldn’t overshadow the others.
“The Father of All African Rivers,” a mighty flow ruled by Pharaohs, today is the most significant economic resource of Egypt. Ancient Egyptian civilization survived on it, and today, the modern state is surviving too. Unlike most rivers, the Nile flows from south to north, through two climatic zones – from the southern mountains is slightly falling to the northern valleys. The researchers discovered the Nile spring in Africa just a century ago. However, even today there are doubts about this, and geographers and scientists cannot agree on its length. During the summer, Nile is flooding, making the valleys around it suitable for life. Even today, every outflow of Nile keeps crops and fields fertile, feeding the rest of the country. The Nile has a variety of plant and animal species. The endemic Nile crocodile is inhabited here as well as papyrus, which abounds along the coasts of this fertile river. Most Egypt packages are very cost-effective when you compare the price and what you can see and experience in this country. Even better is the option to book your vacation in advance. Before final decision, think of which Egyptian sight you want to see, to make your holiday unforgettable.
