    Stop: 8 hours
    You will be picked up from your hotel in the evening and will take a 3-hour drive to the foot of Mount Moses. There you have the opportunity to refresh yourself or have a coffee. Afterwards, the approximately 3.5-hour ascent to the top of Mosesberg begins. It is possible to cover part of the route on the back of a camel (for a fee). The last 700 steps have to be done on foot. At the summit you have an incredible view of the sunrise over the Sinai mountains. After the descent you visit the Catherine Monastery, which is embedded in mountain valleys, which is considered the oldest working Christian monastery and the smallest diocese in the world. In addition to the Vatican, this monastery also has the world's most valuable archive of Christian religious manuscripts. Your efforts will be rewarded by the magnificent sunrise over the mountains of the Sinai.

Streng, aber lohnendswert / tolle erfahrung
Nov 2021 • Couples
Gut war aufteilung in gruppen, etwas zu zügiger marschbeginn, wir hatten aber meinen "tritt" beibehalten. Aufstieg ging gut, auch weil vollmond war, die letzten 750 stufen haben es aber noch in sich

استمتعت كثيراً بالرحلة أنا وزوجتي مع مرشدهم، كان فريقهم ودود ومنظم، بالإضافة إلي دقة مواعيدهم وسهولة الحجز عندهم كانت تجربة أكثر من رائعه حيث شهدنا شروق الشمس من اعلي قمة جبل موسى، واهتموا كثيرا بالاحترازات الوقائيه في ظل الظروف الحاليه انصح بالحجز معهم بكل تأكيد

Alles in allem toll - mit kleinen Abstrichen
Mar 2019 • Couples
Drei Trips von Sharm El Sheikh aus gemacht (Stadtrundfahrt, Katharinenkloster und Sharks' Bay): Alles perfekt organisiert, pünktliche Abholung am Hotel, freundliche Guides und vor allem tolle Erlebnisse! Danke für alles! Allerdings ist die dreistündige Fahrt zum Katharinenkloster (Mosesberg) in einem Kleinbus anstrengend, wenn der Fahrer auch bei Bodenwellen und den schlechten Streckenabschnitten kaum langsamer wird. Wir wurden kräftig durchgeschüttelt. Außerdem funktionierte die Klimaanlage nicht. Dennoch ist der Ausflug alle Mühen wert. Kleiner Wermutstropfen; Statt auf der Rückfahrt Zeit zu haben, das Städtchen Dahab kennen zu lernen, wird man in einen Verkaufsraum gelotst, in dem man den üblichen Touristenkram kaufen soll. Man kann aber auch sofort wieder rausgehen, ohne der Verkausshow beiwohnen zu müssen.
