Mount Sinai is renowned as the principal site of divine revelation in Jewish history, where God is purported to have appeared to Moses and given him the Ten Commandments. The mountain is also sacred in both the Christian and Islamic traditions.
You will be picked up from your hotel in Sharm El Sheikh by our private vehicle to drive to St.Catherine, a 3 hrs drive. Start climbing the Moses Mountain begins at 2:00 am and coming down at 7:00 am. Then proceed to visit St. Catherine Monastery which is considered one of the most famous monasteries in the world and it was dedicated to one of Alexander's rulers, Saint Catherine who was tortured to death for the sake of her new faith.
Alternatively, you can move from Sharm Elsheikh to Mount Sinai after sunrise and visit the monastery first before climbing the mountain which would mean avoiding the crowds. Please note that this is recommended in colder months to avoid the sun's heat.
