The Aswan to Abu Simbel region is often overlooked on short itinerary tours yet it holds some truly magnificent monuments. On route from Luxor there is the chance to visit Edfu. Of all the temple remains in Egypt, the Temple of Horus at Edfu is the most completely preserved. A stop at Kom Ombo temple completes the journey to Aswan. Late afternoon is the ideal time to take a motorboat trip along the Nile to the First Cataract rapids following on down to Elefantine island with your own Nubian guide who will invite you to dinner at his home with a Nubian family.
From Aswan its an early morning drive or short flight to Abu Simbel, a village in Nubia, Upper Egypt, near the border with Sudan, situated on the western bank of Lake Nasser. Driving offers the opportunity to make some further stops at the Unfinished Obelisk, Aswan High Dam,the Aga Khan's Mausoleum and the Philae Temple. The Abu Simbel temples are two massive rock temples that form part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the "Nubian Monuments" one of the true treasures of Egyptian antiquities.
