Dahab Discovery

A visit to the canyon provides instant recognition of where it gets its name. The walls of the canyon, which reach up to sixteen stories, are easily the most colorful and intriguing rock formations in all of Sinai. They were created by the erosion of water upon sandstone and limestone. In some places the deep coloration of rocks gives the canyon walls a prismatic and metallic sheen; in others, the stone is so smooth that it appears soft and pillow.

Drive by Moto to the blue hole area is amazing ride in the desert it’s enjoyable part in this trip

I was lucky enough to visit the area of Masbat like 15 years ago as my nephew used to live there. He rented one of these cafes and he invited us to visit him. The place looked totally different than any other resort I have been to all around Egypt. Everything is this area is simple. Tourists from all over the world gather, sing, and dance in an unusual atmosphere you rarely find all over Egypt. I was lucky as well to visit Dahab three years ago and yes the place has developed tremendously. A lot of new hotels and resorts were opened and a lot of services and facilities were added to the city.

Colored Canyon History

Millions of years earlier, the Sinai Peninsula resided beneath the surface of the Red Sea, and as the waters receded they carved out deep grooves in the surface of the land. The canyon provides visitors with the striking evidence of this long-ago activity, and it also illustrates the composition of the canyon walls, which are primarily sandstone and limestone in a wide variety of shades, colors and hues.
When History Tell you That from Millions of years ago, Sinai was covered by the sea, and nowhere has the ancient ocean left a more brilliant legacy upon the landscape than at the Colored Canyon, near Nuweiba. A visit to the canyon provides instant recognition of where it gets its name. The walls of the canyon, which reach up to sixteen stories, are easily the most colorful and intriguing rock formations in all of Sinai. They were created by the erosion of water upon sandstone and limestone. In some places the deep coloration of rocks gives the canyon walls a prismatic and metallic sheen; in others, the stone is so smooth that it appears soft and pillowy. The canyon mouth is accessible by car, and its short length [about 700 meters] makes for perfect hiking. As one ventures into the canyon, the walls narrow in width to just a few feet in some places, giving the channel a close and secretive atmosphere. The canyon is most commonly compared to the Jordanian city of Petra, although here the spectacle is completely natural. You will said What a place for visiting!

Blue Hole Area

Blue Hole Area the most popular and astonishing area in Dahab is definitely the Blue Hole. This place is really mind-blowing as it consisted of a huge hole inside the sea. This hole was the result of a failing star that smashed into the earth in ancient times and caused this huge blue hole that is 100 meters deep with a radius of 50 meters.
Professional divers come to the blue hole from all countries of the world because of the challenging adventure and the dissimilar sea life the place offers. However, diving in this area needs quite a huge diving experience.
