Oh, to learn and try to figure the mystery of the pyramids. The only thing I regret is not going inside. Next time!!

Very Distinct smell inside like cleaning solvent. Apparently the pharaoh liked things very clean and you can still smell it.

If you visit Giza, you must start at the beginning and visit Dahshour to see how it all started. Fascinating inside and out and this area has very few visitors. Once you see the progression of the pyramids, it will really make you appreciate Giza....More

We saw several pyramids in the area. Bent pyramid, Red pyramid, etc. Each one was different and are of historical significance.

If you are visiting this place before Great pyramids , you will like it. Getting to red pyramid is rather tough . You get a better view of the sahara desert from here

Get away from the Giza pyramids: at Dahshour you get two fabulous pyramids almost to yourself. I was able to climb down into the Red pyramid: no extra entrance charge, and for 1/4 of an hour had the inside of a pyramid to myself. Priceless.

Very cool pyramids. Steps inside the pyramid is a bit tricky so good shoes is a must. The steps outside are good.

.The red pyramid can be entered after a climb. Remember these are stone piles in a desert and as such can be quite warm inside even though I was there in February. You will work up a sweat. Get on a stair stepper months in...More
