Are you up for a Real adventure ?

Get a chance to enjoy the sun rays between the peaks of Moses mountain from 2,285m above sea level and take a small tour in St Katherine Monastery.

Moses Mountain is revered by Muslims, Christians and Jews, all of whom believe that God delivered his Ten Commandments to Prophet Moses at its summit at the Top of that mountain. There are two well defined trails that lead up to its summit. Both trails, The Camel Trail and The Steps of Repentance meet at about 300m below the summit in a plateau known as Prophet Elijah’s Basin. The plateau contains a 500 years old Cypress tree, marking the spot where the Prophet Elijah is said to have heard the voice of God. Then, it is a steep series of 750 rocky and uneven steps to the top, where there is a small chapel and mosque (however these are kept locked).

St Katherine’s Monastery is established in the 4th Century around the site of Moses’ miraculous Burning Bush from which God spoke to Moses for the first time and ordered him to take off his shoes as he is in The Sacred Sacristy. Today it is considered one of the oldest continually functioning monastic communities in the world, and its chapel is one of early Christianity’s only surviving churches, and it has the Codex Sinaiticus which is the world’s oldest near-complete bible which was taken after that to Russia and sold to the UK.
