Valley of the Kings

The west bank of the Nile and the Valley of the Kings , where 64 of Egypt ís Pharaohs have their royal tombs hewn into the sheer rock.















And as we leave, we pass 


Working with native stone - 





And now for the Queen



Smaller tombs on each side in the clifts




The famous 5,000 year old tree


More views and the long, hot walk 













The long, long, hot, hot walk back



The impressive Deir El Baharl Colossi of Memnon, two huge seated statues of Amenhotep III, with the Valley of the Kings on the horizon
