Gizeh Pyramids, Cairo
It is really GREAT and wanderful!!!!!
In Giza Plateau, where Sphinx is located, is very, very hot. I don`t know, how the people in ancient Egypt could work there so hard.
There is no shortage of opportunity to ride a camel near the pyramids. I think we paid LE160 for my husband and daughter for about half an hour. We probably overpaid but what the heck!
No. It is not small like that. The highest is the oldest. Keops' pyramid or The Great Pyramid is about 146 meters high. On the picture is Koefren's one.
The third one is the smallest. It belongs to Koefren's son Mikerinos. It is the only one which is open for tourists.
For entering in Mikerinos pyramid you have to pay 10 Egyptian Pounds (7 Egyptian Pound = 1 Euro). You can buy a ticket in the kiosk close to the pyramid.
The second largest pyramid in Ghiza is Koefren's. Koefren was the son of Keops. On the top of it, there are still alabaster with which which all pyramids were covered.
The Keops Pyramid is on of the Seven World Wonders. In fact, it is the only one which exists today. It is the largest one of three pyramids in Ghiza.
Entrance on Ghiza plateau coasts 20 Egyptian Pounds (7 Egyptian Pound = 1 Euro). Only outside seeing is included in the price.
The Spinx have body of lion and face of pharaoh Chephren. Length of the Sphinx is 57m and it is 20m high.
I think that Pyramids are not so close to Cairo, but as we saw – they really are very close to capital of Egypt! :-)
At first we saw Pyramids through the buss windows. Unforgettable sight!!!
It is a little bit younger than the Great Pyramid. Still having part of the outer case right on the top. By the tim eI was there it was closed.
It was built 4500 years ago. It used to have an outer case of polished limestone, the case was removed about 600 years ago to build cities and mosques.
It is about 137 meters high.
Hi there the pyramids are an awsome sight and i think to venture down into is also awsome we bribed a guard etc not sure if its normally a done thing , but money talks here.
Everyones image of Egypt, the sphinx sits between the city and the desert, his face has seen better days and his mysteries have not all been explained, but he is very beautiful
From this photo you can see just how close Cairo is to the Pyramids. Enlarge the photo for a better view.
