Your hotel pick-up in Sharm El-Sheikh will take place between 8 and 9 PM. Enjoy a relaxing 4-hour journey in an air-conditioned vehicle as you head to Moses Mountain. Once you arrive at Mount Sinai, you will start the trekking part of your tour to the place where Prophet Moses received the 10 commandments. Your journey includes climbing up 750 steps and reaching a height of 2,285 meters. This will take approximately 2-3 hours, depending on the fitness level of the group.
If you reach the summit early, you will have the chance to catch the spectacular sunrise that scatters light across the mighty mountains. This is also an incredible photo opportunity, so don't forget to keep your camera at the ready. You can also use this time to pray. Once everyone is ready, you descend back to the bottom. This will take about 2 hours, and you get to enjoy some resting time after the long trail, along with breakfast.
The next stop is the UNESCO World Heritage Sire of St. Catherine's Monastery. As one of the oldest monasteries in the world, it is home to hundreds of old manuscripts that are displayed in the library. Admire some of the mosaics here, said to be the world's earliest icons. Once you've finished exploring the monastery, you can relax on the drive back to your hotel in Sharm El-Sheikh.
