the trip to Saint Catherine takes about two and a half hours, driving along the seascapes and sandy beaches of the Sinai Peninsula.
Upon arrival around 1 am, we immediately begin climbing the Mount of Moses. The region where this high mountain (locally called Jebel Musa) is located is the center of the Sinai Peninsula. It is considered the most important one in the Biblical story of the Book of Exodus. This is where Moses veiled his face in the presence of God during the revelation of Mount Sinai when the Torah was handed down. Numerous paths wind up this mountain, frequented by hundreds of travelers and pilgrims climbing up to see the formidable sunrise from the top. The area has an abundance of enchanted spots, fruit laden orchards, and refreshing water pools.
This high mountain region is located at about 170 km from Taba, and about 35 km south of Nuweiba.
In the morning we will climb down the mountain for a brief rest and freshening up. Afterwards we will tour the famous monastery (for a supplement you can also visit the museum located within the
monastery). We will go to a nearby hotel for lunch, and then proceed to Nuweiba for a short tour and some free time to roam around the Bedouin markets of the town. Late afternoon we will drive back to the Taba border crossing.
In summer we can conclude the tour with a sea dip on the enchanted beaches Nuweiba.
