Go to Mount Sinai from Sharm al-Sheikh

Walk up the mountain to watch an incredible sunriseMount Sinai, where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments, is just a three-hour drive from Sharm al-Sheikh, Egypt.

Moses is mentioned to have been here once in the Qu”ran, while the Bible says he has been here twice (the first time meeting his wife Zippora and receiving his mission, the second time leading the Israelites to the Promised Land and receiving the Ten Commandments).

Mount Sinai is also the location of the Burning Bush, the Monks” Garden and the Ossuary (Monastery of St. Catherine), a Greek Orthodox monastery founded in the 6th century, and one of the longest-running monasteries in the world.

Walking up this mountain is an unforgettable experience – visitors can decide whether to do so early in the morning, around midday, or late at night.

The last option is the most recommended – and the most popular amongst tourists – because the sun rising over Sinai is a fantastic view that will never be forgotten.
