Although smaller then the big one it's still quite big and impressive. The inside is less of a stunner though since there is no big gallery.

Stunning to see. The three pyramids rose majestically around each other. Khafre was a son of Khufu and his is the second largest known pyramid in Egypt, only approximately 10 feet shorter than the Great Pyramid.

Just as spectacular as the Giza pyramid and the top of the pyramid still has the limestone (I think) covering that the pyramids were finished off with. The lower levels have the limestone chipped away and hence we can see the stones inside. Originally, the entire pyramid was covered by the limestone and the inner blocks are not visible.

We chose to go inside this pyramid to save money (Giza pyramid costs 2.5X) and it was nothing special - Don't expect it to be like the Valley of kings. The tunnel is small and the walls are bare. the burial chamber is also bare but a welcome relief since it's cooler than the tunnel. Nothing amazing from inside but you can go in to see what it's like - it's not too expensive.

We were so impressed with the pyramids in general, but the extra cost of entering this one was not worth it. You walk, crouched over, through a passageway which terminates in the burial chamber to find nothing but an empty sarcophagus - no carvings, hieroglyphics, etc.
