Itinerary

Mount Sinai Tour

Also known as Moses Mountain by the Bedouin, Mount Sinai is where according to tradition, God gave the ten commandments to the Israelite! Surrounded by beautiful mountains in all directions, the famous St Catherine�s monastery also lies at the base of the mountain which we'll explore after our climb.

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Sharm at 08:00 pm and drive from Sharm el Sheikh to Moses Mountain for about 2 hours in a comfortable, modern air-conditioned coach.

On arrival at Mount Sinai we'll start the climb through the night to the summit of Mount Sinai, 2,285 meters which includes about 750 steps. This fantastic, almost surreal walk is like nothing you've ever done before and we guarantee it'll be one of the best memories of your holiday to Sharm! Follow the trail of torches up the winding mountain trail, stopping off along the way at the numerous huts that sell warm Egyptian tea, snacks and cold drinks.

On reaching the summit you'll get to watch the fantastic sunrise over the mountains and deserts surrounding Mt Sinai, a powerful experience and one the best sun rises you'll ever witness, you deserve it after the walk!

After this you will descent towards St. Catherine Monastery for breakfast and then journey on to Saint Catherine's Monastery.

St Catherine�s monastery

After a rest and breakfast we'll visit St Catherine�s monastery for a guided tour. Located on the very ground where god was said to have appeared to Moses in the Burning Bush, this is a very important site for Abrahamic religions that's steeped in history, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This is the oldest continuously inhabited Christian monastery in the world, with a history that can be traced back over seventeen centuries. The monastery pre-dates the divisions of the Christian world, its origins extending to late antiquity.

After your guided tour of St Catherine�s monastery you'll be transferred back to Sharm at 11am, arriving back to your hotel around 1.30pm for some lunch and well-deserved rest!

What Should I Wear? ...It is Cold?

We�ll be climbing a mountain through the very early hours of morning which can get cold in December, January and February. So if you're planning on booking our Mt Sinai Tour over these dates please bring a jumper.

Good footwear is always recommended, so please bring some sports shoes!

How Hard is the Climb!?

It's not difficult at all! The path is fairly level and well-trodden. There's lots of stops on the way so you'll get plenty of chances to catch your breath. If you do find yourself struggling, or you just fancy the experience, feel free to hire a donkey and relax as your taken up the mountain!
