The best pyramid, in my opinion. It stands alone in the desert, so it's easier to see and appreciate the size of it than it is the pyramids at Giza.

Both pyramids at Dahshur are interesting , and quieter than the other ones. You can really get a sense of how intricate and what a real feat these pyramids are when you enter. It’s quite a climb down the narrow tunnel into the guts of...More

A must-do visit to understand the evolution of pyramid building. Standing at teh foot of the bent pyramid is quaite daunting. I recommend a visit to Dashir before you visit Giza pyramids.

The bent pyramid and the red pyramid at Dahshur were the highlights of the pyramid sites for us. There was no one at the red pyramid, and I went inside to visit the chambers completely alone. It was eerie, scary, but once in a life...More
