With their majesty and historic heritage, the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza are undoubtedly Egypt's most popular attractions. However,if you prefer something a bit quieter and more exclusive, this country can still offer some equally beautiful hidden gems, often known only to the locals...
White Desert
Location: Farafra

Located about 45 km away from the town of Farafra, the White Desert National Park was established in 2002 as a protected area for the Egyptian wildlife. However, its chalk rock formations also create a very picturesque scenery, allowing every visitor to experience a unique and surreal landscape continuously shaped by wind erosion.

Pyramid of Djoser
Location: Saqarah


Although it may not be as famous as the ones in Giza, the pyramid of Djoser is considered the oldest intact pyramid in the world. Often referred to as the step pyramid due to its non-conventional structure, it was built between 2630 and 2611 BC as the tomb of pharaoh Djoser. Its influence on the design and construction of future pyramids made it a key element in the revolution of Egyptian architecture.
Desert Breath
Location: Hurghada

This spiral of 178 cones was created in 1997 to represent the perception of infinity and time in the desert. Arguably one of Egypt's most recent landmarks, this art installation will soon be no longer visible due to the weather conditions that have been slowly deteriorating it since the moment of its creation, making it an unmissable attraction.

Nilometer
Location: Roda Island, Cairo

Dating back to 861 AD, the Nilometer was the ideal structure to measure the Nile River's water level and predict potential floods. With the construction of Aswan's High Dam, the Nilometer fell into disuse and slowly turned into one of Cairo's hidden attractions both for its ancient purpose and its Turkish-style pencil-point dome.
