Cairo Travel Guide


Dashur is one of the most tranquil and awe-inspiring pyramid sites, with five pyramids dating from the Old and Middle Kingdoms—three of them are obvious, but only one can be entered. At this writing, the site is undergoing active restoration, supported by the Egyptian government, the United Nations Development Program, the World Trade Organization, and UNESCO. The plan is to have the Dahshur pyramids sufficiently supported

so that their interiors can be reopened to the public. Currently, only the Red Pyramid is open. No information is available at present regarding whether or not ticket prices will rise upon the completion of the restoration work, or when the work will be completed.
