Excursions between Luxor and Aswan – Kom Ombo

Kom Ombo Bild 1 The city of Kom Ombo is located about 210 kilometers south of Luxor and 40 kilometers north of Aswan. There, around 300 BC, there was a double temple, that is, ONE building, which was also consecrated to TWO gods (the crocodile god “Sobek” and the falcon god “Horus”). This makes this temple a special case in Egyptian history. In a side building of the temple one can still admire mummified crocodiles today.

The estimated visit time is two hours.

More informations about this place can be found at Wikipedia.

Distance from Luxor (return trip from Luxor including stay):

Road:  9,5 hours,  Schiff:  1 day

Note:  For a day trip on the road, Kom-Ombo is actually too far from Luxor. It is a good 420 km. If you book our 3-day trip to Aswan (preferably during a Nile cruise) instead of the Temple of Kom Ombo you can visit the temples of Edfu and Esna and enjoy the sights of Aswan.
