Not much to see or do at the 3rd and smallest of the 3. Quick walk by or drive by on the way to the panoramic area for great photos.

This pyramid is entered by a long low passage that opens into a beautiful quiet chamber before the burial chamber of red granite. A very peaceful resting place. Definitely worth a visit.

The pyramid of Menkaure is the smallest of the trio and yet, it stands there in the desert, an imposing structure and a symbol of a great civilization. You can actually descend down into the burial chambers via a steep drop supported by planks. Descend into greatness and the feeling you get once you do will last you a lifetime!

You should go inside this pyramid if you don´t want to crawl the very long and narrow way to se the inside of the Cheops Pyramid. It is also much cheaper.

Even the smallest of the Giza pyramids is still a wonder to see. Room around and take in the grandeur!

No words to descibe and so accessible. It can be seen from all over Cairo. One of those Bucket List Items everyone should take care of.
