Mount Sinai (Moses) & Saint Catherine

For many of the visitors of St. Catherine’s Monastery, at the foot of Mount Sinai, the trek to the mountain's (2,285 meters) summit is the highlight of their visit. There is a chapel at the top, reached by either following the camel trail or climbing the 3,750 Steps of Repentance. Whichever way you prefer, the final stretch is a gruelling 750 rocky steps to the top, where you’ll be rewarded by spectacular views, plus the knowledge that you are standing on the spot where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Most visitors climb the mountain before dawn, arriving in time to catch the sight of the sun rising over the desert and the surrounding peaks. To make things less physical and enduring, use the camel trail on the way up, and the steps on the way down. Pick up time will be at 23:00 PM, and the drive to the destination will be approximately 2 hours by bus. The visit of monastery starts at 09:00 AM till 11:00 AM including a Bedouin guide.
