Lake Nasser, or Lake the High Dam, is the largest artificial reservoir in the world; it covers around 6,600 km2, contains approximately 162 billion m3 of water, and about population around 1 million people in Egypt and 1 million people in Sudan, banks of lake Nasser are characterized by its dry and hot natural desert, it was formed primarily for water storage, but it still has plenty of archaeological sites like Abu Simbel Temple, Pinout Temple, Kalabsha Temple, and more. Lake Nasser is the largest reservoir that humans have created.
It was named after former President Gamal Abdel Nasser and was responsible for supplying Egypt with irrigation and electricity. When there was a flood in Egypt, many ancient buildings were washed away with water. As a result, Unesco decided to salvage some of this civilization’s history and transported Abu Simbel to Lake Nasser, where it has since become one of the most incredible temples in the world. In addition, when you sail the Nile with Lake Nasser Cruises, you will have the chance to explore the primary discoveries that have been made in the region.
Anglers have several different beaches to fish from, and the landscape around Lake Nasser is quite stunning, with plenty of sandy rocks and flat rocks. Discover a wide variety of animals, including birds, mammals, and reptiles. It is possible to see a variety of hawks, kites, falcons, eagles, wild ducks, Egyptian geese, pelicans, herons, and egrets. Additionally, there is a wild duck. The lake is located in a remote place, and its population of peasant fishermen is deficient. The Bedouin people who inhabit the region are traditionally camel and sheep herders; it is not uncommon to spot them grazing their flocks on the little flora that grows along the lake’s coast.
