8 Things to do in Egypt

The mighty Nile takes you on a journey (in Egypt trip) of this incredible desert that takes pride in being one of the oldest civilizations of the world.

With its magnificent monuments, massive Pharaonic temples and impressive pyramids, Egypt is a story that entices people because of the treasures that remain buried beneath the ground for centuries.

To uncover this “Gift of Nile”, make sure you must indulge in the following things in Egypt:


1.The Great Pyramids & Sphinx

It’s not the size or the shape of the Pyramids that blows the minds of the visitors in Egypt trip, but it’s the precision with which they were built that makes one wonder about the great engineering and architectural skills of the people of that time. From the many theories that revolve around the existence of the pyramids, one of the most believed is that the pharaohs thought they would go in the afterlife and hence filled their tombs with the things they would need in the next birth.
