Full day to Abu Simble

Upon arrival at Abu Simble airport a local guide leads you to visit the colossal Temples of Abu Simble, which have been built by Ramses II (19th Dynasty). Lately, the temples have been saved from inundation of the Nile water.
The temples had been buried under the sand of the desert and forgotten for some 3000 years. An exciting discovery was that on February 20th and October 20th the rays of the sun penetrate the interior, precisely illuminating the statues of Ramses and his fellow gods.  
The temples were built out of a sandstone rock cliff, representing the deities are carved on his huge facade. The small temple of the King’s wife Nefertari, dedicated to the goddess Hathour.
Lunch will be served at a local restaurant in Abu Simble. Then transfer to Abu Simble airport for flight back to Aswan.
