Khafre's Pyramid or originally known as Chephren's pyramid is actually the second largest of the three famous Giza's pyramids. It is three meters shorter than the largest - Khufu's [Cheops] pyramid. However it is built on higher ground [10 meters] to give this effect. As part of the pyramid complex it can not be missed on a visit. You are... More

44 feet shorter than his father's pyramid, but no less impressive. Built on the highest part of the plateau, it seems bigger than the Great Pyramid, clever boy!

Further south of the Pyramid of Khufu is the Pyramid of Chephren (Pyramid of Khefre). The fee to enter this Pyramid is LE 40, but it was closed to visitors when we went.

This is of course a MUST SEE and my main reason for visiting Egypt. It is absolutely worth the visit. The history is unbelievable and the fact that it so well preserved and that it was built without any modern technology we have today with such precision is just hard to believe. It is worth visiting the inside as well... More

I am giving the site 5/5 because how can you not? Just be forewarned that everyone from the guards to the camel drivers to horse buggy drivers will harass you in some form or another to get you to buy their services or tip them or have them take your photo (for money) - there was absolutely no way to...

The pyramids are not as the movies make them out to be, but the fact that it was built 4500 years ago will blow you away. Good experience but locals try to sell you things and are constantly requesting tips.

Visited Khafre's Pyramid few days after arriving to Cairo. I entered the Pyramid and was very overwhelmed by how ancient Egyptians built those Pyramids, how long it took them, those Pharahos were geniuses.

Again excellent Pyramid , the Khafre's Pyramid is second tallest 136 meters high , only second to his fathers Khufu's Giant Pyramid . It's peak is covered with polished lime stone casing. It's east side view gives you good photo opportunity. Over the time most of valuable granite stones are removed and used in other palaces and mosques.
