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.

  • Valley of the Kings was pretty decent, a little bit busy but not packed! we were able to see 3 tombs which were fairly well intact which was nice. If you do however love the tombs here and wish you could see them in more detail they have the Nefertiti tomb in the valley of the queens, it is amazing! do be warned the people at the font of the tomb selling books etc aren't always selling factual information, the valley of the kings book we got was way off!

  • The Valley of the Kings is truly amazing and a must see! I would advise getting there VERY early, to avoid lots of queues and people but also for the heat. Trust me, you do not want to be there when it gets too hot. You get a ticket for entry into 4 tombs (if I remember correctly) and you can pay slightly more to go into King Tut's tomb. There is a little train that you can buy a ticket for that takes you from the ticket booths to the tombs and I advise spending a few pounds on this as its well worth it, especially for the return journey, as you are likely to be very hot and tired after looking at the tombs. Wear comfy shoes and take water with you! Enjoy

  • Great place but hot as hell, prepare yourself for 50 degrees Celsius in shade (if you find any shade outside tombs). The valley is filled with tombs of Pharaohs and the most known tomb here is the one of Tutankhamen, one of the youngest and not so important ruler of the Egypt. But fortunately, the fact this wasn't well known Pharaoh and that rock-slide has blocked the entrance to the tomb thus hiding it from the grave robbers this was the best preserved tomb with numerous golden and other artifacts including Tutankhamen Mummy and golden death mask. You can see these artifacts in Egyptian Museum in Cairo. In short, definitely worth seeing it.

  • Valley of the Kings is along the mountain on the other side. I didn't buy a camera ticket, which I think is $40, thinking I could take photos inside anyway. I was wrong, security is tight inside and people who buy a ticket have to hang it on the camera, so it's impossible to take photos without buying one. Entering the tombs is one of the most special experiences in my life. The colors, drawings, everything about these tombs is very special. Extremely well preserved. Certainly a must.

  • Give yourself time to explore several tombs. An entrance ticket gets you access to 3 tombs. You have to pay extra for a few of them including Tut's tomb. It is very hot here. Bring water and a hat. You can now but a pass to take photos inside the tomb. The pass is for 3 tombs but does not include Tut's tomb.
