Amazing Rock-cut tombs that belong to the Middle Kingdom of the Ancient Egyptian time. Place is out of beaten track and difficult to reach but totally worth it.

We had an incredible visit to Beni Hassan and El Minya. The tombs are magnificent and the colours almost like they were painted yesterday! The wrestling scenes are very detailed!

While the village itself is of no value, the tombs are really great. Apart from their historical value, they exhibit marvelous wall paintings and reliefs. However, you need to climb more than 140 steps, while sun is not really tender. No access for handicapped, unfortunately!!

The tombs here date back to around 2000BC and are interesting because they show the development of tombs from the earlier Old Kingdom mastabas towards the later tombs of the New Kingdom. They are rightly celebrated for their paintings including scenes of everyday life and...More

Yes walk at the side of the stairs. Much easier. Most likely you will be the only people there. It’s worth the climb.
