Dahshur Red Pyramid - The Real Pyramid Experience in Egypt

Click for fullscreen mode

If you've been to the Giza and you were not that impressed, give pyramids a second chance:

go to Dahshur, south of Giza, and you'll find 3 more pyramids (actually 2 because one is kinda destroyed). The 2 main pyramids are the so-called Red Pyramid and the bent pyramid (because of its bent sides).


These pyramids are unique for a couple of very important reasons that will make the experience completely different:

- no tourists around (or maybe just a few - not like in Giza)

- the pyramids are not surrounded by buildings like in Giza, but are in the middle of nothing, so the atmosphere is so different!

- no vendors to hassle you

- entrance is way cheaper than in Giza, and entering the Red Pyramid is included (without crowd)

What are you waiting for? Go!
