What are the numbers and averages?
|The grandeur of Deir el Bahari is perhaps best appreciated from afar. Built as if to form the base of the cliff, the main temple complex here stands square and strong. As you approach, you can almost imagine the royal dead climbing the enormous staircase which allows access to the upper levels. There are a good variety of statues and preserved paintings and hieroglyphics to get an idea of how the Egyptian saw fit to honour their dead. – Sarah|

|If you are happy to pay inflated prices, there is a café just outside the ruins which may be a place to enjoy a cold ice cream or energising coffee.|
|There is a shuttle bus/tram that takes visitors from the car park to the temple complex. However, you may want to savour the site for a little longer and approach on foot.|
|One or two of the better paintings here have been covered by cloth. Expect to either pay a tip to a lingering “guard” to show them to you, or be prepared to have a quick peak when said guard is targeting another tourist.|
