This was perhaps the most detailed underground tomb in the Valley of the Kings &/or one with the most hieroglyphs/reliefs. If I remember correctly, this was not originally purposed for Ramses VI. Also, it had astrological reliefs on one of the ceilings.

Both Ramses VI and Queen Nefertari's tombs are not to be skipped. Both are absolutely beautiful and worth any extra cost. Life-changing!

It is something no one should miss. Wear light and bright. Have your bottle of water and light snacks with you and be ready to spend 3-4 hours there. Avoid summer because it is very hot and Tuesdays because it is off.

I would suggest to visit Howard Carters house nearby where a magnificent copy of the tomb in all its beauty can be viewed! The Spanish government sponsored this project.

I wish you could take pictures inside, but you can't. This was so amazing and the art work inside is well preserved. Gorgeous!
