Lake Nasser Attractions

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.

Usually, the trip takes three nights / four days from Aswan to Abu Simbel or four nights / five days from Abu Simbel to Aswan.

Tips For Traveling Responsibly

The best time to visit Egypt depends on where you want to go. Generally speaking, winter (December to February) is the tourist high season and summer (June to August) is the low season in all parts of the country except on the coasts, and to a lesser degree in Cairo.

Weather-wise, June to August is unbearable almost anywhere south of Cairo, especially around Luxor and Aswan, where daytime temperatures soar up to 40°C. Summer in Cairo is almost as hot.

When visiting somewhere such as Luxor, winter is easily the most comfortable time. Cairo isn’t quite as pleasant, with often overcast skies and chilly evenings, while up on the Mediterranean coast Alexandria is subject to frequent downpours resulting in flooded, muddy streets. Even Sinai’s beaches are a little too chilly for sunbathing in January.

The happiest compromise for an all-Egypt trip is to visit in spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November).

There is very little that you might need and won’t be able to find in Egypt. That said, you may not have the same degree of choice as at home.

So bring sunglasses, a torch (flashlight), sunscreen and a hat. If you’re a light sleeper you may also want to bring earplugs.

If you are visiting during winter, a sweater or light jacket is necessary for evenings, especially in desert areas.

Here’re the most important things you should bring it with you.
Hats, Sunglasses, Sunscreen, Comfortable walking shoes, Power Adapters, Medication, Camera, Alcoholic Beverages.

Khan El Khalili

  • Wear a wedding ring. Generally, Egyptian men seem to have more respect for a married woman.
  • If you are traveling with a man, it is better to say you’re married rather than ‘just friends’.
  • Avoid direct eye contact with an Egyptian man unless you know him well; dark sunglasses help, mirrored ones are even better.
  • Try not to respond to an obnoxious comment from a man – act as if you didn’t hear it.
  • Be careful in crowds and other situations where you are crammed between people as it is not unusual for crude things to happen behind you.
  • Keep your distance. Remember that even innocent, friendly talk can be misconstrued as flirtation by men unused to close interaction with women. Ditto for any physical contact.

  • Be wary when horse or camel riding, especially at touristy places. It’s not unknown for a guy to ride close to you and grab your horse, among other things. Riding with an unknown man on a horse or camel should be avoided.
  • You may find it handy to learn Arabic for ‘don’t touch me’ (la’ tilmasni). Also worth memorizing is ihtirim nafsak (literally ‘behave yourself’) or haasib eedak (watch your hand). Swearing at would-be Romeos will only make matters worse.
  • If you do get groped, don’t expect people to be ashamed or apologize if you call them out. Most guys will just sort of stare at you blankly and wander away. So all the advice to ignore, ignore, ignore is wiser – you won’t be standing there with your adrenaline running, shouting and feeling like an idiot.
  • Being befriended by an Egyptian woman is a great way to learn more about life in Egypt and, at the same time, have someone nonthreatening to guide you around. Getting to know an Egyptian woman is, however, easier said than done. All we can say is seize on whatever opportunities you get.

  • Learn the language. Although English is widely spoken as a second language in Egypt, make an effort to learn a bit of Arabic. Knowing the basic greetings will win the respect of locals, and a firm command of the numbers will give you some bargaining power.
  • Sail the Nile. Until recently feluccas were the only sail-powered option, but there are now a growing number of cruises, most of them operating between Esna and Aswan.
  • Rent a bike. The opening of the bridge across the Nile in Luxor has seen a huge rise in the number of coaches and taxis on the West Bank, with all the usual issues of pollution. But bikes are easy to rent on both sides of the river and slow traveling gives a different perspective on the country you pass through.
  • Don’t bribe guards. Do give them a present if you want – they are paid so little that any amount will be welcome. But don’t exploit your economic superiority by bribing them to let you do things you shouldn’t do.
  • Dress conservatively. Rural areas in the deserts are home to very conservative communities that do not see many travelers. Be cautious with revealing dress, showing affection in public and any behavior that may offend sensibilities.

Is it safe for women to travel alone?

Many women travel alone and have found that they have been safe. The police, tourist police, and army are always close by and the Egyptians themselves are generally safe and will try to protect solo travelers. On the whole, it is generally safer for a solo female traveler in Egypt than places like Greece, Italy or Spain.

Although the chances of being confronted are almost negligible, please ensure that you take the same precautions that you would anywhere else and do not be tempted to walk in deserted areas alone: get a taxi back to your abode! You may receive some invitations, which on the whole are innocent, do not accept any of these from strangers.

How much should i tip in Egypt

The amount depends on the situation. It is good at the restaurant to give between 5 to 10% of the instructions to the waiter directly even when adding service to the bill. The tax service does not go to the waiter. For a small interest, such as carrying luggage or parking in a car, some Egyptian pounds would be appropriate. Not more than five. Often in Egypt, you’ll find someone leaning to the bathroom to keep it clean. Give them one Egyptian pound is the right amount.

Giving tipping to the tour guide and driver is entirely optional. If you decide to give them, feel free to give what you think your experience was worth.

However, in some museums, such as the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, and some historical sites, such as the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, photography is prohibited and visitors are required to leave their cameras at the reception desk before entering.

What are the most important historical mosques in Cairo?

Cairo, dubbed “the city of a thousand minarets”, is characterized by a large number of magnificent historical mosques. The most prominent of these are the Mohammed Ali Mosque in the Citadel of Salah al-Din, which was built at the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Sultan Hassan Mosque, built-in 1361, and the Al-Azhar Mosque, built-in 970 AD, which was restored and expanded several times thereafter, the Mosque of Amr ibn al-As. The first mosque in Africa was built in 640 AD, the Mosque of Ahmed Ibn Tulun, built-in 878 AD, and the Mosque of Hakim, built 1013 AD. Tourists are welcome in all these mosques on any day, except Friday.

Why stay in a hotel near the pyramids and not in the city center?

If you are in Cairo just for a few days, it will be easier for you to see locations starting from a base in Giza. Traffic from the city center to the pyramids can cause the journey to take more than an hour, which means an early start if you want to experience a full day, especially if you need to enter the Great Pyramid when you are in the plateau before 0800. If you are in Cairo For a while, the hotels in the Pyramids are all resort-based, built on an acre of land with outdoor pools and comfortable areas, something that downtown hotels can’t really afford. This is why you tend to find downtown hotels like towers; extremely long and narrow, while Giza Pyramid hotels are limited in height, but they cover more land.

The cost also comes into the equation as a simple 4-star hotel in the downtown area is more expensive than a 5-star resort in the pyramids. Cairo resembles most of the major cities in the world in this regard, as the ownership of the city center is much more expensive. Although it may seem that downtown hotels carry the luxury of being able to wander around the area for shopping, restaurants, etc. Most Pyramid hotels offer free shuttle buses to allow you to do the same, plus taxis are not expensive and will still work out cheaper in the end.
