Mt Sinai Sunrise and St Catherine Monastery Tour from Dahab

2 reviews
Travel through the night from Dahab to see the sunrise atop Mount Sinai. Leaving late in the evening, you will travel on a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle to St. Catherine’s Town and begin climbing the mountain in the dark of night. Watch the sun rise atop the mountain, the same place where Moses received the Ten Commandments. After descending, tour St. Catherine’s Church, the oldest monastery still in use, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After breakfast, head back to Dahab with your group.

The trip itself is very difficult: you walk a long distance at night, not sleeping a minute, and it's very cold, and crowded (taking pictures-wise), at the top. And yet it's a worthwhile experience and you get some great views and challenge yourself. In the end you get a short visit to St Catherine Monastery (not much to see there). The company itself in Dahab doesn't do much - it takes you to the St Catherine Protectorate by a small minibus and brings you back in the morning. Any food, drinks along the way is at your expense. The guide is a local bedouine guide in any case. But they can hook you up with other travelers, and not too much of them, so it's good. There are many other travel agencies in Dahab but I cannot vouch for them.

dress warm for the top. Gloves are key. There are cafes along the way up the mountain so you can stop and get a coffee. Bring small bills.

TRIP #1By email with Joseph Nazir & Annet, set up a private 4WD tour with Bedouin guides to St. Catherine's Monastery, then 4WD trip in desert with hike, cooked lunch on desert. Cost was $400 US for 2 people all day, but worth it. We were picked up about 8, driven to St. Catherine's for 1 1/2 hrs, then off road in the desert & mountains. Stopped in beautiful place, one guide took us on a hike (we are experienced hikers, but were only promised a short hike)--But our guide was willing, we hiked for 3 hours, to the top of a ridge with beautiful views north and south. When we returned, the other guide had prepared a meal, hummus,pita bread, nice salad, 1/4 of a chicken for each of us roasted over a fire he had built. Great food, great experience with Bedouin guides talking about their lifestyle & culture (parents/grandparents nomadic life in this area, now most live in towns, etc.)
