Mount Sinai, Saint Catherine

#2 of 16 in Historic Sites in Red Sea and Sinai
Must see · Mountain · Religious Site
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. Put Mount Sinai into our Saint Catherine tour itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Saint Catherine.
