The scenery on this hike is breathtaking and indescribably beautiful. You will be hiking through the desert like mountains of Sinai and seeing a completely different side of Egypt that you have never seen before. Depending on which part of the trail we are taking, this could be around the mountains or closer to flat land and desert lakes.
The 3 nights are spent camping as we make our way through the pristine Sinai Trail. We usually sleep inside sleeping bags in the open space, but you still have the option to bring your tent if you want.
The desert environment can make weather a bit extreme. That's why were are heading towards Saint Catherine as the city itself is at an altitude of 1500-1600M and we will be on an average altitude of 1700-2000M so it's colder than the see level weather. And we have the natural pools that we pass by to refresh and recharge. Make sure you always carry water for hydration, at night you can enjoy the cool desert breeze.
You will be treated to 3 extremely delicious meals on a daily basis
