Just west of Luxor, you will find the mysterious Valley of the Kings. It’s in this harsh environment - for five centuries - the tombs of the rich and powerful were carved into the surrounding limestone cliffs. While there are many tombs available to see (over 60 discovered to date), it’s recommended that you take the time to study only a few, carefully exploring in detail, the chambers within the tombs, and the fascinating frescoes and wall reliefs.
