Proceed Sailing towards Kom ombo (approx 02 hours)
Guided tour to Visit kom ombo temple, which is a double temple dedicated for two gods,
Sobek god of evil and Horus the good god,
Sobek was represented as crocodiles,In Ancient Egypt, crocodiles laid their eggs above the impending high-water line of the
Nile s annual flood, the pivotal event being that water enriched fields and allowed Egypt to be born again year after year.
“Crocodiles were magical because they had that ability to foretell. “The news of a good flood, or a bad one, was important to
farmers. And so in time crocodiles became symbols of Sobek, a water god of fertility, and Kom Ombo temple was erected in
one of these places in southern Egypt where the swelling flood was first observed every year. In that sacred space, near the
riverbank where wild crocodiles lay sunning themselves, captive crocodiles led an indulged life & were buried with due ceremony
after death, but in the same time Ancient Egyptian were beleiving that it is apower of evil and they have to controll it, evil because
the big crocodiles attacks animals and farmers

So the same temple was dedicated also to Horus, the falcon-headed god,the son of Osiris the god of the other life & Isis godess
of magic. Isis gave birth to Horus after Osiris was murdered and hid him from his wicked uncle Seth by concealing him under her
magic hair. Horus was king of the living. He is often identified with protection and associated with pharaohs.
After visiting Kom Ombo temple which stands by the Nile just south of Gebel el-Silsila, proceed sailing to El Souk (El Souk) in
arabic language means (animals & vegetables market), sailing time approx 02 hours
Sailing to Kopania (approx 05 hours)
Sailing to Aswan (approx 03 hours)

Overnight in Aswan

Day - 6: Wednesday
Disembarkation & visit Aswan Tourist sites, Philae temple which was located on Philae island,The Egyptian island of Philae was
the center for worship of the goddess Isis and attracted pilgrims from all over the ancient world.
The original island is now completely submerged under the waters of Lake Nasser. But in a spectacular rescue operation, the
great temples and monuments of Philae were pulled out of the water and re-erected on a nearby island, now renamed Philae,
After philae temples tour, go to visit the High dam of Aswan, Aswan High Dam, rockfill dam across the Nile River, completed in
1970, at a cost of about $1 billion. The dam,(111 metres) high, with a crest length of (3,830 metres) and a volume of (44,300,000
cubic metres), impounds a reservoir, Lake Nasser, that has a gross capacity of (169 billion cubic metres), Building Aswan High
Dam created a big lake, Nasser lake, creation of Nasser reservoir necessitated the costly relocation of different Ancient tourist
sites such as Abu Simbel & Philae temples.

Proceed the tour to visit Ancient Egypt granite quarries,where you will see one of best tourist sites in Egypt showing us how ancient
Egyptian were working to cut the obelisks from the granite quarries.

No rock speaks such volumes as Hatshipsut queen Unfinished Obelisk, it speaks of the power of the pharaohs, of the triumphs
of quarrying and its unimaginable failures. Had it ever made it out of its stone cradle and assumed its position before Karnak (or
wherever its creator planned to place it), it would have been the greatest obelisk ever raised, a monument worthy perhaps of
"Wonder of the Ancient World" status. As it is, the Unfinished Obelisk is the obelisk raisers most grievous tragedy, a lasting
reminder of the limits of human engineering.
After visiting Aswan tourist sites, ( OPTIONAL LUNCH ) and transfer for any other direction in Aswan such as Aswan hotels or
airport or train station.
You can change the last day itinerary in case if you want to go to visit Abu Simbel Temples (Optional tours), then after coming back from Abu Simbel go tho visit the ex tourist sites of Aswan.
