Not an activity to do place for anyone, it is a mountain where you will find graveyard for pharaonic colored drawings on walls. Take sun umbrella or hat with you as it is a very sunny place, and drink lots of water.

The area needs to be cleaned to be fit for visitors. Just a little bit of care and explanation of history will make the place worth visiting.
