Sharm El Sheikh / Mount Sinai and St Catherine Monastery / Sharm El Sheikh

We will pickup you from your hotel at approximately 22.00 PM. From there it will take approximately 3 hours (depends on the location of your hotel, approximately 230 kilometers from Sharm el Sheikh) to drive to Sinai Mountains. On this sunrise tour you will watch the sun rise over the Sinai Mountains, and retrace the footsteps of Moses when he climbed Mt. Sinai to receive the 10 Commandments. Note that the descent is not too steep, but there are around 500 steps at the very summit. On your journey back down the mountain you will stop at St. Catherine’s Monastery, built between 527 and 565 A.D. The monastery is believed to have been built around the site of Moses’ Burning Bush.
During your visit you will visit the chapel of a Greek Orthodox church to see famous icons and the Mosaic of Transfiguration. Please note: St. Catherine’s Monastery is approximately 142 miles ( 230 kilometers) from Sharm el Sheikh.
