Camels outside St Katherine's Monastery, Sinai
Egypt

St. Katherine's Monastery in the Sinai peninsula attracts a lot of visitors from around the world. Many people combine the visit with a hike up the holy Mount Sinai, also called Moses Mountain, which can be seen to the South-West. It is said that Moses received the 10 commandments on top of this mountain. The hike to the peak, more than 2200m high, takes 3 to 4 hours and is quite strenuous, so the local Bedouins provide camels for those who can not complete it on their own.

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.
