The Colored Canyon pathway in Sinai Egypt
Egypt

One of the natural wonders of the Sinai peninsula, the Colored Canyon. It’s a maze of sandstone rocks in hues of yellow, purple, red, magenta and gold reaching up in some places a height of 40 meters.


The Canyon is located about 12 km north of Nuweiba, two hours from Sharm El Sheikh. It lies in a limestone mountain chain named El Tih, where, it is said, Moses was lost for 40 years. The area is only reached by 4x4 vehicles and you need to be accompanied by guides. The small oasis of Ain Furtaga is the beginning of the trek leading to this geological wonder of Sinai. Upon arrival to the entrance of the maze, you have a couple of hours walk ahead of you along with some light climbing.
