Coloured Canyon

Colourd Canyon

The strain of this trip is medium to hard. Not for overweighed and unfit persons because of the climbs and the bottlenecks to pass!

The famous Coloured Canyon is about 90 km north of Dahab. We start the trip in Dahab by a 4x4 car, since the road is very bad, and drive towards Nuweiba till you can see the oasis Ain el Furtaga. The tracks leads uphill through sandy wadis directly to the starting point of the canyon walk. There is a Bedouin cafeteria in this area, where we can stop for a rest. A small path leads down to the canyon and you can start the walk.
We will bring you directly to the canyon by 4x4 car. You need good shoes for the hiking and you need to be in good physical shape. You have to climb down several meters in the canyon and you have to pass some bottlenecks. It's a great adventure! The best time to do the walk is in the late morning when you will have the best sunlight.
At the end of the trip you have to re-climb the plateau. Have a break at the Bedouin cafeteria where the car is waiting for you.

Go PRO PADI

Ain Khudra and Fersh Birgha

The strain of the trip is medium to hard. Especially the ascent back to the asphalt road may be difficult. 

The oasis of Ain Khudra is about 53 km noth of Dahab. We drive towards Nuweiba and close to the St. Katherine junction we will turn west. After a few kilometers the narrow valley widens to the overwhelming landscape of the Fersh Birgha. Beside the road there are several Bedouin cafeterias and that's where we start the trip to Ain Khudra. The view down to the oasis is really beautiful. Alternatively, you can go there directly by a 4x4 car via Nuweiba.
Our car will bring you to the starting point. After a walk to the edge of the plateau we shall walk downhill to the Khudra valley. There are a lot of palm trees in this very beautiful oasis.
If you are fit enough choose the White Canyon trip for ascend, which is harder but more beautiful. Or you can use the direct way up to the asphalt road.
The car is waiting for you at the asphalt road to bring you back to Dahab.

Saint Catherine's Monastery

Saint Catherine's Monastery

If you do not want to walk uphill to Gebel Musa the strain of this trip is minimal. But for the hike to the peak you should be in a healthy condition and physically fit.

The monastery of St. Catherine, founded in the 6th century, is one of the most famous Greek-orthodox religious centres. Pilgrims from all over the world used to travel to this holy place since many years. Today tourists come to this area either to visit the monastery or to enjoy the overwhelming view from the Gebel Musa. The distance from Dahab is about 120 km. There is a very good asphalt road.
We have to start early in the morning or even in the night time if you wish to climb the peak of Gebel Musa. The car or minibus will bring you to the monastery's parking area and from there it only takes ten minutes to walk to the monastery.
To walk up to Gebel Musa you can use the traditional monk trail with its 3750 steps all the way up to the peak, which is at a height of 2285 m. There is a longer and more comfortable way up where you can ride a donkey or a camel.

The 400 km distance is best handled by plane from Sharm. Due to the size and variety of archaeological sites Luxor is only suitable as an excursion for several days. At least once in your life you should have been there. We take you to Sharm Airport and pick you up from there.
