Gebel al-Mawta

ADD TO MY TRIP

Gebel al-Mawta or Mountain of the Dead is near the center. You can go walking or using a donkey charriot. In the second war world the inhabitants of Siwa hided themselves in this mountain during three years. They found a big necropolis.The rock-cut tombs found here date from the 26th dynasty through the end of the Roman era and all bear resemblance to ancient Egyptian burial practices. It has beautifull frescos.
