Aswan Full Day Tour Phile Temple Unfinished Obelisk High Dam

Overview

Start your tour to the High dam of Aswan which was completed in 1964, an engineering miracle when it was built in the 1960s. Containing more material than used in the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Dam is 11,811 ft long, 3215 ft thick at the base, 364 ft tall and is carved into from the existing granite, providing irrigation and electricity for the whole of Egypt. Continue to the Unfinished obelisk in the granite quarries of Aswan where much of the red granite used for ancient temples and colossi came from. The Unfinished Obelisk still lies where it was carved when a crack was discovered as it was being hewn from the rock. Proceed your trip to visit the majestic Philae Temple which was carefully moved to its current location (around 500 meters from the original site)d. At the end of your tour you will be escorted back to your hotel.
