Est. reading time:

This video from the Valley of the Kings is the fifth from a cruise on the Nile from Aswan to Luxor. The stops: Aswan – Kom Ombo – Edfu – Esna – Luxor.

The Valley of the Kings is situated outside of Luxor in Egypt. “Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis” is no. 87 on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Filming is not allowed inside the valley so the video contains some photographs of the outside and even inside some of the crypts. In addition comes scenes from Queen Hatshepsut’s mortuary temple complex not far from the Valley of the Kings, and from the statues called Colossi of Memnon standing guard on the way from Luxor to the Necropolis.

Audio: “Ancient Sunrise” performed by Gerald Jay Markoe.
