High Dam Approx. Time: 2 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

Located near Aswan, the world famous High Dam was an engineering miracle when it was built in the 1960s! Today it provides irrigation and electricity for the whole of Egypt and, like the old Aswan Dam built 6 km down river by the British between 1898 and 1902, wonderful views for visitors. From the top of the two Mile long High Dam you can gaze across Lake Nassar, the huge reservoir created when it was built, to Kalabsha temple in the south and the huge power station to the north.
