Mount Sinai trek & St.Catherine Monastery – day trip.

Depart Dahab early morning, approximately 08.00 a.m.Traveling north and then heading west into the vast desert towards St. Catherine's Monastery. The Monastery was built in the 6th century at the foot of Mt. Sinai in honor of Catherine, a Christian martyr who was sentenced to death by the Romans. Greek Orthodox monks have been taking care of the Monastery for centuries now.
We will start by visiting the Monastery. Afterward we will climb up Mt Sinai reaching the top of the mountain, which stands at 2,285 meters and includes about 750 steps on the way, in time to experience the fantastic sunset at the summit. According to biblical terms it is said that God delivered the Ten Commandments to prophet Moses right there.
After sunset we will descend towards St. Catherine Monastery to be collected and taken back to Dahab.
