Day Trip to Wadi El-Hitan & El-Fayoum Oasis from Cairo
Many people consider visiting Egypt to explore what was left of the oldest mankind civilization known as the “Pharaonic Civilization”. What many people do not know is that Egypt has way older attractions to offer such as the valley of the whales’ (Wadi El-Hitan).
Day Trip to Wadi El-Hitan and El-Fayoum oasis from Cairo shall take you to the very beginning of the planet earth 200 million years ago to explore the early whales’ fossils and wander around the bottom of the ancient Tethys sea. Isn’t it a wonder to explore an open-air museum which was once under the water?.
In addition to the open-air museum at Wadi El-Hitan, this trip also featured another very important museum that is “The Climate Change Museum” recording the whales’ evolution as well as showing some examples of extinct creatures and displays its fossils as well.
Lake Qarun is another interesting story, from the kingfisher, seagull, and egret birds flying above the lake, to the open scenery of Qatrani mountain on the northern side of the lake! Not to mention the fishing activities and the perfect climate.
A visit to Wadi El-Rayan is a well-worth break after stopping at/or climbing Mudawara mountain to enjoy the view of the two natural lakes of the valley, as well as capture photos of the waterfalls at Wadi El-Rayan.
There is no doubt this trip to El-Fayoum oasis from Cairo is a perfect Escape-the-city tour that every traveler needs after a longer Egypt Tour Package.
