Lake Nasser Cruises
A great way to relax and see the sights is to take a cruise along the Nile or a sail around Lake Nasser. From the decks of a felluca , a traditional wooden sailing boat, or a luxury boat you can see many temples along the way.
On the shores of Lake Nasser you can see wonderful Great Temples of Abu Simbel for Ramses II and Nefertari which date back to Pharaonic Egypt and the reign of Ramses II. They were moved in an Unesco project to their present site when the Aswan Dam caused water levels to rise. They were in danger of being submerged under the water. They were literally, carved out of the mountainside. Motorboats take visitors on shorter trips too.
