Pyramids of Meroë
Hillat ed Darqab, Sudan
An epic adventure from start to finish, I joined a tour group from Dubai for a two night trip to Sudan. The highlight of the excursion to this Saharan country was taking in the Forgotten Pyramids of Meroë. Camels and children greeted us as we approached the site to these ancient tombs. We first saw them at sunset and had the site nearly to ourselves!
Sudan has more pyramids than Egypt. Though the structures are smaller, they are thought to predate and maybe inspire those in Egypt.
This is one place I feel completely fortunate to have seen and will not forget my exploration of the Forgotten Pyramids. #photography #history #architecture #ancient #siteseeing #sahara #adventure #tomb #royalty
