Luxor, EgyptVisiting Luxor will be the true highlight of any trip to Egypt for Austr alians or other visitors. With the exception of the Pyramids and the Sphinx, which are located near Cairo, Luxor contains the vast majority of the Egyptian sites and temples that tourists generally want to see.
After a short flight or overnight train to Luxor from Cairo, the first stop on the tourist itinerary is usually the Valley of the Kings, where most of the pharaohs of ancient Egypt are buried. Perhaps the most famous tomb in the Valley of the Kings is that of Tutankhamun, although it is really one of the least impressive to visitors. More impressive tombs can stretch for thousands of feet underground and are covered with ancient friezes whose bright paint colors are still visible to this day.
Another important tourist destination in the Luxor area is Deir el-Bahari, an enormous ancient temple complex carved into the side of a small mountain. Many of the paintings and etchings at Deir el-Bahari are among the country's most famous, although today the site is perhaps best known for being the site of a massacre of tourists carried out by Islamic militants in 1997. The Luxor area also features Karnak, arguably one of the most impressive monuments of Ancient Egypt just in terms of its sheer size and complexity, and a must-see attraction. While Luxor may not have the glitz and glamor of Cairo, its huge number of ancient Egyptian sites certainly makes up for it!
