Take the trek up Mount Sinai, said to be the peak on which Moses spoke to God and received the Ten Commandments. The 2,285 m (7,497 ft) mountain has two routes: most visitors prefer to take the easier Camel Path on the way up, and descend via the challenging 3,750 Steps of Penitence. A small chapel on the top and a World Heritage-listed monastery at the foot of the mountain mark this out as a place of pilgrimage, while the barren, rocky landscape has an evocative, reverential atmosphere all its own.
