What You'll Do
  • Stand in the place where Moses received the 10 Commandments
  • Climb Mount Sinai as the sun sets and descend as the sun rises
  • Visit the historic monastery of Saint Catherine
Overview
For a truly awe-inspiring experience, climb Mount Sinai as the sun sets and descend as the sun rises. Witness the place where Moses received the 10 Commandments, and visit the famous Saint Catherine's Monastery.
What to Expect
Embark on a nocturnal adventure to the place where Moses received the 10 Commandments. Witness the sun setting and rising over the mountains, and feel a sense of awe at your sublime surroundings.

You will be collected from your hotel in Sharm el Sheikh at 22:00. The transfer time to Saint Catherine’s City is around 2.5 hours, and you will travel by deluxe air-conditioned bus.

Begin to climb at 02:00. Your expert guide will help you climb and talk to you about the history of Mount Sinai. Retrace the footsteps of Moses. The summit of the mountain is the site of many religious structures. Here you will find a Greek Orthodox chapel, constructed in 1934. The chapel encloses the rock which is widely considered to be the source of the biblical tablets of stone.

You will begin to descend at 07:00. Watch the sun rise over the Sinai Mountains. This is truly awesome experience as the sky glows pink and gold and melts into a pale blue light of morning.

Once back on flat land, visit one of the most famous monasteries in the world–Saint Catherine’s Monastery. This UNESCO World Heritage site lies at the mouth of a gorge at the foot of Mount Sinai, and is the arguably the oldest continuously-operating Christian monastery in the world.
