Anywhere you look in Egyptology, you’ll come across the concept of afterlife- the journey of the soul from one world to another! That’s one of the reasons they’re mummification process was so exact and precise. The Valley of the Kings is essentially a burial ground. All the kings and pharaohs of Egypt of the New Kingdom period were buried there with all the possessions they could possibly need in their journey to the afterlife. With over 63 tombs, each tomb is different from the others; the murals lining the walls, the embellishments on the actual coffin/casket couldn’t be any more different.

  • It is a spiritual experience! An ancient place to put your own foot on is giving you this undescribable feeling. All is well organized, so wide public is capable to visit. A hot and dry weather is the same like Sacramento, CA!

  • Awesome experience. All the hieroglyphic inside the tombs are still intact and colourful. Most important is the tomb of Tutankhamun where you get to see his mummy.

  • This place really lives up to the legend! You can visit three tombs with the regular ticket except those that require special fee. It's really worth it as those catacombs have carvings and colors that are still visible after thousands of years! Don't forget to take a lot of water with you as in the tombs it's really hot and humid.

  • Such a great place. One of my favorite places we visited in Egypt. With one pass you get to access 3 tombs (there are numerous). Definitely check out Ramses IV tomb, it is the best one in my opinion. Stunning color is still preserved so you get a sense of just how beautiful and ornately decorated these tombs would have been in their prime. Not allowed to take a pictures inside
