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 - 

Alabaster

                    

                   

 

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
