Hop a plane to the edge of Lake Nasser and visit the twin temples at Abu Simbel, the larger of which is considered to be one of the most awe-inspiring and well-preserved temples of ancient Egypt.
Enjoy a quick plane ride from Aswan to Lake Nasser and take a tour of one of the few Egyptian sites that largely escaped damage from past invaders. Carved out of a mountainside, Abu Simbel's twin temples commemorate the alleged victory of Pharaoh Ramses II in the Battle of Kadesh. The temple facade depicts four standing statues of Ramses II himself, and the stunning interior is remarkably well preserved.
