Pick up from your hotel, start your day tour to visit the High Dam, an engineering miracle used as an embankment dam situated across the Nile River, built in the 1960s. It is newer and larger than Aswan Dam; the High Dam was constructed to control the flood waters. Then a short drive and a motor boat ride will take us to Egilika Island to visit Philae Temple, its ancient name is P-aaleq which means end and creation, it is dedicated to goddess Isis, it is considered by many to be the most beautiful temple in Egypt. Philae temple was carefully dismantled to be relocated away from danger, the workers followed a technique in its dismantling to be easily collected that each block of the temple was labeled and its position carefully recorded. This rescue mission took ten years to be perfectly completed. Where your guide will first take you on a walking tour through the temple parts before allowing you free time to explore further on your own. Then visit the Unfinished Obelisk; it is the largest known ancient obelisk which located in the northern of the stone quarries, it is unknown which pharaoh created this structure. Back to your hotel.
