Just a few months before the Egyptian Revolution of 2011, I led a walking tour to the Land of Pharaohs and had the chance to soar above the Nile in Luxor and take in these magnificent views of Hatshepsut's Temple. If you look closely you'll see a walking path underneath the multi-colored hot air balloon. One of our featured walks here starts just over the mountain in the Valley of the Kings (where Tut is buried) and ascends to the cliff high above Hatshepsut's Temple, before coming down the other side to the Temple's entrance. It's a shade-free walk but is an eye-popping way to enjoy both historic sites!
