The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Going there visiting them and seeing them with your own eyes is a different experience. The scale of these buildings can only be appreciated when you are there, standing in front of them, it will get you thinking how did they build those huge pyramids! Every stone is so big and not uniform in size or shape.
There’re three pyramids in three different sizes, and a trip to see the pyramids is not complete until you experience what it’s like inside the oldest pyramid in the world. But if you suffer from claustrophobia it’s not recommend to go inside!
Unfortunately we only got inside the big one because we didn’t have enough time. They close at 4 pm so if you’re planning to visit, you may wanna go early in the morning to be able to explore and enjoy it all.
Going inside the pyramid, We thought we’re gonna find a grand hall and see the highest point in the middle, well that guess wasn’t even close! There was a narrow small tunnel going up and it got smaller and smaller we couldn’t even stand! finally we reached to the last ladder which led to the King’s chamber that was built from huge stones and there we found the king’s sarcophagus which was made out of a single, hollowed-out granite block. It’s still a secret how they built the pyramid but going inside and seeing that room and how it was perfectly built and how the stones were precisely fitted together is another whole story.
There was a lot of tourism companies that suggested to take us on a tour but we preferred going on our own to discover and enjoy our time there and we had so much fun.
On our way out we passed by Abulhool, The view was phenomenal as you can see in the picture below.
Overall, I loved our trip there and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to be there and explore the pyramids myself but I don’t think I’m gonna do it again, for me it’s more like a trip that happens once in a lifetime.
