Only 10 km south of Saqqara, in the middle of nowhere (= desert), the bent pyramide of Dahshur. Only few tourists come here. The only attraction is the pyramide. Climbing a steep limestone stair, followed by a wooden one, leads to the entrance nearly halfway...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.
