The list of superlatives at archaeological sites of world rank is long in Luxor. The Valley of the Kings, however, has a special position on this list. About 5 km north-west of the city center of Luxor, 64 tombs of pharaohs (mainly from the time between 1500 and 1000 BC) have been found here. The valley is enclosed by the Theban mountains and the tombs are partly in excellent condition. The area was famous for the only found of an untouched grave – the tomb of Tut-Ansch-Amun by the Englishman Howard Carter in November 1922.
The visit takes approximately one hour.
