I tried to visit the place from west bank via Edouf and went with taxi from Luxor. First I visited el Kab. After I returned to Taxi, the driver told me that people at el Kab told him that it is not advisable to drive west bank of the river for security reason at the moment.
I was not with them when they told him so that I am not sure if they actually told the driver so or if the driver simply decided he did not want to go.
So I did not go and went back to Luxor after el Kab.
Also when I was looking for good taxi driver, one driver said it is necessary to get permission to drive through west bank and all the other drivers said no need at all so I was not sure which is true...
Anyway, I should have asked tourist police before hand.
It seems that it is a difficult place to visit I wonder.
