Aswan High Dam

The High Dam is a must-see in Aswan. This huge dam was built to provide electricity and secure irrigation water, but it also helps prevent flooding of the Nile River. The scenery from this area and the surrounding ruins and temples are also must-sees.

The Temple of Queen Hatshepsut was built for Hatshepsut, the only female Pharaoh of ancient Egypt. You will be overwhelmed by the scale that stands in front of you.
