Mt. Sinai Approx. Time: 4 hours
Activity Level: Most Strenuous

It is 2285 meters high. On its highest summit there is a small church and a mosque. To reach the summit where the Chapel of the Holy Trinity stands, one must ascend 750 steps – but the breathtaking view makes it worth the effort. Visitors are keen on climbing the mountain to watch sunrise. It is called Mt. Moneiga where God spoke to his Phrophet Moses. It is recommended that you at least take the steps down, as they will lead you past the fountain of Moses, a small chapel of the Virgin, and two arches - the Gate of St. Stephen and the Gate of the Law.
