Arrive in Aswan, where you are met by your tour guide and begin your day of exploring by visiting the majestic Temple of Philae. The temple of Philae was considered to be the most sacred temple among the whole ones by both Egyptians and Nubians peoples, so this is because God Osiris was buried on the island where the temple stood. Osiris, also called Usir, one of the most important gods of ancient Egypt. This dual role was in turn combined with the Egyptian concept of divine kingship: the king at death became Osiris, God of the underworld; and the dead king’s son, the living king, was identified with Horus, a god of the sky.
Next, awaits a visit to the High Dam – With a reservoir capacity of 132km³, the Aswan High Dam provides water for around 33,600km² of irrigation land. It serves the irrigation needs of both Egypt and Sudan, controls flooding, generates power, and helps in improving navigation across the Nile.
A sailing on the Felucca too is exciting while in Aswan. Settle into a traditional white-sailed boat with a skipper, and sail to Elephantine Island and the Aswan Botanical Gardens on Kitchener’s Island. Enjoy the scenery and sounds of lapping water, and disembark to stroll the exotic gardens, planted by Lord Kitchener in 1899.
Post the various exciting excursions return to the cruise and check in. All the meals are to be served on board the cruise.
