Mt.Sinai & St.Catherine

We offer two different trips - overnight and day excursions. In summer time overnight trips are most popular. In winter day trips are preferred due the colder evening conditions...
MT. SINAI & VISIT TO ST. CATHERINE'S MONASTERY (NIGHT TOUR)

•Depart  Dahab late evening from Penguin hotel - approximately 23:00 p.m.. travelling north , then head west into the vast desert towards the Mt. Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments.

• The strenuous trek up Mt Sinai, may have some of you huffing and puffing up the trail (approximately 3 hours), but once at the summit, you can rest. The dawn of a new day and the changing hues of the horizon, are well worth the effort.

• The climb down is much quicker. On your descent you will visit St. Catherine's Monastery, in honour of Catherine, a Christian martyr who was sentenced to death by the Romans. Greek Orthodox monks take care of the monastery, which
was built in the 6th Century at the foot of Mt. Sinai. We return to Dahab for a noon arrival.
