Remember to buy a separate photo pass if you want to take pictures in the tomb. Its worth the extra cost.

This tomb has beautiful artwork and still contains the sarcophagus. You can also see a lot of evidence of what was done by tomb robbers. Wear good shoes and light clothing, it's hot and steep!

According to Egyptian lore this son of Ramses was sent to bring back the Israelites to Egypt and stop the Exodus. He was caught and drowned when Moses closed the Yam Suf. The sea gave his body back to be buried. Amazing!

A tomb for one of Ramesis II sons, the colours are still vivid on the walls. You can see the traps that were laid for the tomb robbers. Take good shoes are the tomb is steep and stuffy.

One of the tombs in the valley. You can pay extra for more tomb visits but some are more elaborate than others. Research which ones to see in advance.
