Hike to the top of Mount Sinai and marvel at the incredible sunrise from the summit. Browse through manuscripts at St. Catherine’s Monastery.

Highlights: 

  • spend some time at St. Catherine’s Monastery and discover its old treasures

  • ascend to the Mount Sinai where God told Moses the 10 Commandments

  • explore the 6th-century church located by the side of the burning bush

Includes: 

  • Sharm el-Sheikh hotel pick-up and drop-off

  • air-conditioned vehicle transfer

  • water and soft drinks

Please note: minimum 2 people. Bring passport, warm clothing, hiking shoes, jacket and food.

You will be picked up from your hotel in Sharm el-Sheikh city between 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM. Then you will travel in an air-conditioned vehicle for around 4 hours to reach the Moses Mountain. 

When you arrive at Mount Sinai, you will start your trekking tour to the sacred place where the Prophet Moses received the 10 commandments. Reach 2,285 meters by climbing up 750 steps, strolling through the night (approximately 2-3 hours, depending on the customers).

Depending on the performance of the group, you may arrive at the summit earlier than expected. This will give you a chance to really relax and marvel at the rising sun slowly scattering across the mountains in all its splendor. 

While gazing at the sunrise, snap awesome photos or pray if you wish to, then begin the descent back down. Remember, it will take around 2 hours to reach the bottom. Enjoy some time to rest after the long trail and then have breakfast. 

Next, visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. Catherine's Monastery. Browse through the old manuscripts displayed in the library and icons excavated from the Vatican. It is the oldest functioning Christian monastery in the world situated on the Sinai Peninsula along with the Monastery of Saint Anthony which is located across the Red Sea in the desert of South Cairo.
After you've finished touring the monastery, you can relax on the drive back to your hotel in Sharm el-Sheikh.
