    visiting st catherine's monastery

    Mount Moses Trekking, Sunrise

    The excursion to Mount Moses is a very interesting and informative journey. During the excursion, it is necessary to observe the following recommendations. First of all, no matter how old you are, be confident in your abilities: climbing the mountain, which lasts a couple of hours, under the power of anyone. You just need to calculate their strength and very comfortable to dress and shoe. Sports shoes, in the off-season – warm outerwear in a compact bundle behind your back, in summer – a dense windbreaker or wool sweater will be very useful: the top is always colder than in the foothills, and a strong wind blows.
    Dawn dazzles the Sinai Mountains in gentle golden tones, and the whole valley below you, first immersed in darkness, suddenly comes to life and lights up with the most extraordinary colors. For the sake of this moment, it is worth enduring a lot! According to the legend, the pilgrimage to Mount Moses and the meeting of dawn remove the burden of your sins from your shoulders.
