St Katherine Village Center, Sinai
Egypt
The small town of St. Katherine on the Sinai peninsula lies at an altitude of about 1600 meters. Its name derives from the famous St. Katherine's Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is located here. Many of the local Bedouins are now working in tourism, either as guides to the monastery or as mountain guides to climb the highest peak in Sinai - Mount Sinai, also known as Moses Mountain, with an elevation of more than 2200 meters.

The large areas of the Sahara Desert are sparsely inhabited. About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with the majority spread across the densely-populated centres of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx.
