Abu Simbel Tours

Abu Simbel is a village located 280 km south of Aswan and only 40 km north of the Sudanese border. It is a very small settlement with very little to attract visitors other than to explore the two temples, and to watch the Sound & Light show which is considered the most spectacular in Egypt. To see the show one must stay overnight in Abu Simbel. There are many hotels and Nubian houses.
 
With the construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s, the temples were threatened with submersion under the rising waters of the reservoir (Lake Nasser). As a result, a project sponsored by the UNESCO and the Egyptian government disassembled both temples and reconstructed them on top of the cliff, 60 meters above the original site.
 
The weather in Abu Simbel is very dry and hot in summer. Between June and September the average temperature is 47°C (117°F) during the day. In winter, between October and May, the temperature average is 26°C (79°F) during the day.
