- Day 1:
After crossing the border at Taba, you pack our gear on Jeeps and drive towards “The Colored Canyon”, where we hike through the colorful gorge. Then we drive to St. Catherine’s Village, where we have lunch in the local Bedouin Restaurant. Our gear is taken to the local Sheikh’s House, where it is being loaded on Camels that will accompany us during the Sinai-Trek, just like in Biblical times. A short hike on some ancient camel-roads brings us to a Bedouin Garden, where we spend the night.
Hike through Wadi Tal’a, where many Palm-Trees can be seen. A steep ascent through Wadi Shag brings us to a natural spring, where, in years with sufficient rain, there is a swimming opportunity. Then we climb through the narrow gorge of Wadi Sagr, after which we set our camp in a Bedouin Garden nearby.
In the morning we visit the Bedouin Holy Site Sheikh Santa, which gives us an insight to the way holy places were attended in Biblical times. Then we continue on a well-frequented Camel-Road to Wadi Tinya ("The Wadi of the Figs"). Another well-built road brings us up Jebel (Mt.) Abbas Pasha. An ancient path, used also by the Byzantine eremites brings us to our next campsite, in a Bedouin Garden as well.
Today we ascend the famous Mt. Moses (the famous mount of God) where Moses received the Ten Commandments over 3000 years ago. But we climb it from behind, on a less known route, which enables us to see some ancient hermitages, dated back to the times of the first Christian monks. Except for the majestic landscapes, this area enables us to understand the roots of Monotheism and Christianity. After three hours climbing, we will be enjoying and experiencing the unforgettable experience for the sun rise from the most spiritual place.
We descend Mt. Moses on the "Stairs of Repentance" (Ca. 4000 stairs) to visit the St. Catherine Monastery. This monastery is the oldest continuously active monastery in the world, and hence famous for its large rare collection of ancient icons and manuscripts dated back to the sixth century.We will also be able to visit the traditional site of "The Burning Bush" and "Jetro's Well". Then we drive back to the village, where our camels await us with our luggage. On our way down toward the Red Sea we can visit the "Rock of Inscriptions" where pilgrims left their marks during centuries, and also view the Oasis Ein Hudra (Biblical Hatzerot?) from an Observation-Point nearby. In the afternoon, drive back to the border.
