    Going inside the pyramids?

    inside chepren pyramid

    Favorite thing: If you really want to visit the pyramid of Cheops, because of the gallery, i advise you to go early as only 120 people are allowed to go inside per day. Furthermore if you’re claustrophobic I advise you not to go inside. It’s free to go in the smaller pyramids, like the queen’s pyramids, but there isn’t much left of them. I couldn’t even find the entrance! Also don’t go in the summer, ‘cause it’s get really damp and sweaty the more you climb down the stairs, so I can’t imagine how it must be in the summer . The “stairs” in Chepren is really narrow and people go up and down on the same stairs. You can’t walk upright, you have to bend your knees and walk a little crutched. If you’re ok with all these things, then go for it! There is nothing special inside the pyramid except a sarcophagus and the graffiti of G.Belzoni. It’s more the idea of: ”I’ve been in a pyramid.”

    Fondest memory: What I’ll never forget is seeing the pyramids for the first time. When your in a taxi driving up there, and all of a sudden you see 2 small pyramid tops in a far distance. But yet we had to wait another 5 to 10 minutes before we were actually there. I really didn’t know where to look when we entered the gates. Those big pyramids are so close to the city! And they’re so big that you really have to look up.

    "New" style of traveling?

    Favorite thing: How about having some fun on these? Some of my friends actually ride on the camels (not pictured here). Well, if you don't mind to haggle & the distinctive smell of the animals, you'll have lots of fun :-D That's what they claimed, lol...

    The Great Pyramids

    by Sharrie Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walk around the GREAT PYRAMIDS - 3 of them, namely:

    (1) PYRAMID OF KHUFU: 755 feet square at its base, 449 feet high. The entrance was on the north side & the corridors were aligned with the circumpolar stars everpresent on the horizon to ensure immortality.

    (2) PYRAMID OF KHAFRE (CHEPHREN - Son of Khufu): 446 feet high, the one with the white 'cap' at the apex.

    (3) PYRAMID OF MENKAURE (MYCERINUS): Smaller than the other 2.

    Fondest memory: Just feeling amazed over the ingenuity of the ancient Egyptians & the wonder of the ancestors in preserving this wonder & many more in Egypt for so long...especially life seems so unpredictable these days & we've had 2 world wars!

    Egyptian Mountie at the Pyramids..

    Favorite thing: A machine gun toting Egyptian mountie patrols around the the Pyramids of Giza.

    Unlike their Canadian cousins, these guys obviously prefer camel to horse back to make their appointed rounds....

    Pyramids

    Favorite thing: Traffic in Giza is often hectic and noisy, especially on the roads leading to and from the Giza Pyramids. Some gardens offer the peace and tranquillity that is missing out in the streets.
