Sinai Trekking Charity Challenge, Egypt
Ancient civilisations and desert cultures are combined with hiking to the heights of Mount Sinai & snorkeling in the Red Sea on this inspiring challenge which captures the pulse of this fascinating country. Accompanied by our Bedouin guides we trek high into the mountains of the Sinai, including a climb on Egypt’s highest peak, Mt Catherine as well as a dawn ascent of Mt Sinai where we climb in Moses’ footsteps. After a relaxing day by the Red Sea coast we fly back to London.
World Expeditions operated its first trip to Egypt in 1982 and we continue to find this destination fascinating.
This itinerary can be lengthened with extra time in Cairo or on the trail. Due to current regulations camping is currently not permitted in the SInai. When this ban is lifted we suggest the camping version. On the non camping version we return to the town of St Katherine's each night and stay in dorm style accommodation at a Bedouin village. Sleeping bags are not required on the non-camping version.
