Muhafazat Janub Sina' Transportation

  • Tour Buses

    most tourists and christian pilgrims going to Saint Katherine came from the Taba Crossing Point from Israel and are fetched by tour buses and private vans going to Saint Katherine which is about a 2 hour drive from Taba. the tour buses shuttle you to saint katherine monastery (800 meters away, you must walk or ride the shared taxi for LE 6 per...

  • Camel Ride to and From Mount Sinai

    the path going up Mount Sinai is a rocky and irregular one and can be steep in other areas. majority of the tourists and christian pilgrims going up the mountain hire a camel going up or down and even round trip to and from the camel station about 3/4 of the way to the top. (the final 1/4 is too narrow and steep for camels to go up). hiring a camel...

  • Private Shuttle Vans for Tour Groups

    if you are on a holyland package like us, then private vans that will fetch the christian pilgrims in your group who will wish to go up the mountain (as some do not want to climb it due to old age or medical conditions) to and from the starting point and ending point of the mount sinai climb and the ride and the camel ride to the top with the...

  • Saint Katherine Taxis

    as most of the hotels around Saint Katherine are far from the base of climing Mount Sinai, located at the Front of Saint Katherine Monastery, There are many Taxi Vans plying the route with some of them parking at front of the different hotels to ferry the mostly christian pilgrims going to Saint Katherine Monastery and Mount Sinai. Taxi Fare is...

  • Camel ride on Mt. Sinai

    When climbing or descending Mt. Sinai there is also the possibility to take a camel until/from the staircase. The camel path begins from behind the Monastery and goes up to the steps. The remaining 750 steps must be climbed on foot.Probably the best option is to take the camel when climbing.It costs USD 10- but at the end of the ride the owner will...

  • Transport to Mt. Sinai base

    Most hotels from Dabah, Sharm el-Sheikh, or Nuweiba provides various tours and bus tickets. I paid 55 EGP for a minibus tour from Dabah to Mt. Sinai departing at 11pm and return by noon. When you entered the National Parks of Egypt St Katherine Protectorate, the driver will let you off the car and buy entrance ticket for 17.5 EGP (May 2006). At the...

  • High Speed Ferry

    There is a high-speed ferry a few times a week going from Sharm el Sheik to Hurghada. It is supposed to take 1,5 hour, but when I went with it took 3 hours. The sites on board are comfortable and there is a small snack bar selling coffee (6 pounds) and tea, coke, crisps and sandwiches. If you feel seasick you better sit in the middle in the middle....

  • From Taba to St Katherine

    When you have crossed the border at Taba you will be met by taxi drivers offering to take you to your destination in Sinai. But if you walk on, less than a km, you will come to the bus station and hopefully there will be a bus for you. If not you can always ask for a taxi here in peace and quiet.I was going to St Katherine’s Monastery for which the...

  • To and from Dahab

    I came to Dahab from St Katherine’s Monastery. There is a bus from the nearby village leaving for Dahab at 1 o’clock. I wanted to leave earlier so I went down to the parking just after 9 o’clock, hoping I could go with one of the many tour buses and taxis waiting there (the monastery opens at nine and after visiting all people who came to climb Mt...

  • Road from St Katherine's Monastery to...

    It's easy to reach St Katherine's Monastery by tarred road from the east or west coast. A a normal car will do.Even if there was a tarred road, our driver Mohammed with his landcruiser went off-road, if he had any chance.

  • Sinai by four wheel drive

    In Cairo I met the other 3 members of our small international group for the ''six day off road tour'' in the Sinai. Our driver Mohammed was a very good, but also a crazy driver. When he drove off road, he pushed the accelerator down to the bottom.So at the question ''how does the landscape of the Sinai looks like?" I can only answer "Most of the...
