Trips are available all year round.
We will take you on an all day trip to Gebel Silsila an amazing look at where the stone for the temples where quarried, Silsila is also famous for its New Kingdom stelai and cenotaphs.
During the 18th dynasty the Egyptians switched from limestone to sandstone. At this time the quarries at Gebelein were not yielding as much limestone as before. Gebel el-Silsila became a source of sandstone.The use of this stone allowed for the use of larger architraves.
Many of the talatats used by Akhenaten were quarried from here, and used in buildings at Luxor and Amarna.
