This trip starts form Luxor to Luxor
Dendera Temple complex, is located about 2.5 km south-east of Dendera, Egypt. It is one of the best-preserved temple complexes in Egypt. The area was used as the sixth Nome of Upper Egypt, south of Abydos.
Lying about 70 kilometers (42 miles) north of Luxor, the Ptolemaic temple at Dandara is one of the bestpreserved monuments in Egypt and well worth a visit. Several hotels in Luxor offer boat trips to the site, departing early in the morning and returning that evening. The drive from Luxor, in spite of the convoy system imposed by Egyptian security, is pleasant and takes one past several interesting villages. Thirty kilometers (18 miles) north of Luxor on the East Bank lies Qus, ancient Apollinopolis Parva, with a fine twelfth century mosque. Forty-one kilometers (25 miles) north, Qift, ancient Coptos, lies at the mouth of the Wadi Hammamat, one of the principal routes to the Red Sea and to the mines and quarries of the Red Sea Hills.
