    Ferry across the Nile.

    by illumina Written Jan 12, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is perfectly possible and easy to take the local ferry across the Nile from Luxor to the West bank.
    Use the map in your guidebook, and don't listen to any of the touts trying to tell you where the ferry is as they will undoubtedly take you to a private boat and charge you far more than the 1LE the trip should cost on the public ferry.

    How to get the Temple

    It is possible to reach Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut by bus or by car. Parking and entrance in Djeser-Djeseru are on the distance about a kilometer from the Temple. This distance can be overcome on foot. However the heat does not allow to make it with pleasure.

    Therefore some car-wagons go between the central entrance and the place where survey of the Temple begins. Travel is free-of-charge and takes several minutes.

    How to get in the West Bank

    The Bridge across the Nile

    Luxor is situated on the East Bank of the Nile. Several years ago and in ancient times you could get there only by boat crossing the Nile. Access to the West Bank is now easy to arrange.

    There is now a new road bridge over the Nile, some 7 km south of Luxor main city. Many package tourists now get to the West Bank by buses.
