About Abu Simbel

Abu Simbel is a village in Upper Egypt that's home to a world-renowned archeological site, the Abu Simbel temple complex. The massive two-temple system is a bucket-list-worthy attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Abu Simbel complex features massive ancient temples that were carved into solid rock thousands of years ago, including the Great Temple of Ramses II and the Temple of Hathor. Visitors will enjoy amazing views of the temple complex on Abu Simbel cruises docked in Lake Nasser -- a vast reservoir in the River Nile.
