Explore Aswan and discover this most popular site on this guided tour to theHigh Dam, Unfinished Obelisk and the alluring Temple of Philae, set on its ownisland in the Nile.

Your day starts with a visit to the magnificent Aswan High Dam.Although it was constructed several millennia after the majority of Egypt’siconic landmarks, the High Dam is equally as impressive. A miracle of modernengineering, the dam is 364 feet high and spans for over two miles and containseighteen times the material used to build the Great Pyramid of Cheops. Once,the largest rock-filled dam in the world, today the dam provides irrigation andelectricity for the whole of Egypt.

From here, you continue to the Unfinished Obelisk. Muchof the granite used for Egypt’s temples was quarried in Aswan and in theNorthern Quarry you will find an unfinished obelisk that has remained in situever since a crack was discovered as it was hewn from the rock. Possiblyintended as a companion to the Lateran Obelisk that once stood proud at Karnak,if completed the obelisk would have been the largest piece of stone everhandled.

Your tour concludes with a visit to the beautiful Temple of Philae.Dismantled and reassembled on higher ground after the completion of the AswanHigh Dam threatened its existence, the temple is dedicated to the goddess Isisand is set on its own island. The temple is widely regarded as the prettiest inEgypt.
