Once the ancient kingdom of Kush, Nubia houses archeological sites of great interest: temples, fortresses and tombs. The constructionof the High Dam  brought up a great danger of overflooding the temples of Philae, Kalabsha and Abu Simbel. One can enjoy a cruise in Lake Nasser to explore the New Nubia after relocating the flooded temples.
Situated 280 km south of Aswan, the two temples of Abu Simbel are the most magnificent temples in the world. The first temple was built by the mighty pharaoh Ramses II and the other for his wife Queen Nefertari. Their allocation is an achievement that was supported and managed by UNESCO
