True bucket list experience. The magnitude of this Pyramid can't be appreciated until you see it in person. I recommend the camel ride. They take you out a little ways for a great view.

Khafre’s Pyramid is younger than Kuhufu’s but looks taller because of it’s placement on a higher platform. It is unique in the sense that it still retains the smooth limestone casing at the top. Just imagine how great the spectacle would be if all the...More

Here you can see how the limestone outer covering has worn away. The blocks are smaller, but it does dominate the space.

It is amazing to see the pyramid up close. The top is smooth, which at one time they were all smooth on the outside. Our guide told us that the stones were stripped from the outside and used to build the Citadel downtown.

All you can do is look at this pyramid from the outside. It is not as well constructed as the Great Pyramid. It is somewhat smaller although you can reach a perspective where it appears taller. Part of the outer coating remains at the top...More
