The key feature of this tomb, which was originally built for Ramses V and expanded by Ramses VI during the 20th Dynasty, is its vaulted astronomical ceiling with a double image of the Goddess Nut swallowing the sun.

It is something no one should miss. Wear light and bright. Have your bottle of water and light snacks with you and be ready to spend 3-4 hours there. Avoid summer because it is very hot and Tuesdays because it is off.

I would suggest to visit Howard Carters house nearby where a magnificent copy of the tomb in all its beauty can be viewed! The Spanish government sponsored this project.

Amazing hieroglyphics on the walls, colors still intact. Overwhelming to walk down the ramp into the cool depths and see the paintings and carvings still standing so many years later.

Our tour group visited Valley of the Kings as one of the last in 10 days, and it certainly left the best till last. The blue ceiling at the bottom of this tomb was nothing short of overwhelming. Sorry no photos from inside, not permitted

When you visit the valley of the kings you get a ticket to visit 3 tombs. The tombs of Ramses VI, Tutankhamun and Seti I are extra. We only visited Ramses VI but it was well worth it, more interesting than the others that we...More
