Arrived in Luxor our first visit will start in the Karnak temple. The Karnak Temple is the largest temple complex in Egypt on the eastern bank of the Nile. One of the most important construction areas of the temple is the large columned hall. The temple complex consists of three areas surrounded by walls. The first is the Amun (ancient Egyptian Ipet-sut "place of election"). The second area is the Month area and the third area is the Courage area. The oldest remains of the temple that are still visible today date from the 12th dynasty under Sesostris. Until the Roman Empire, the temple complex was repeatedly expanded and rebuilt. Outstanding among the ruins are the temples of Amun-Re with its ten pylons. Among other things, you will see the sacred lake, it has a size of 120 × 77 meters and is located south of the central temple building, the lake is fed by groundwater.

Stop At: Valley of the Kings, Luxor City, Luxor 85511 Egypt
After lunch we drive to the Valley of the Kings, which is located about 5 kilometers northwest of the city of Luxor. In ancient Egypt, the Valley of the Kings was known as the “Sechet-aat large field”. In the Valley of the Kings there are over 70 graves carved into the rock. In the Valley of the Kings, in particular, the tombs of the rulers of the new empire (approx. 1550 to 1069 BC) were 18 to 20 dynasties. To protect the mummies, they were removed from the tombs in the 22nd dynasty and hidden in other tombs. In 1922 the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered largely intact. The systematic search and opening of graves began with Napoleon's expedition to Egypt. The Valley of the Kings is one of the main draws for tourists in Egypt. Only a small part of the graves can be visited, as a changing part is closed for conservation reasons. Since December 2009, photography and filming are no longer permitted. Since 2018, photography without flash was allowed against the purchase of a photo permit at a price of around 15 euros.
