Climb Mount Sinai – Mount Catherine Summit
Egypt’s highest mountain offers trekkers a challenging experience, more spectacular views. Mount Catherine is the Egypt’s highest mountain. Largely overlooked by the tourist multitude (who instead opt to watch the sunrise from the more well known Mount Sinai), climbing Mount Catherine offers trekkers a more challenging experience, more spectacular views and relative solitude on her lofty summit.
Mount Catherine, locally known as Gabal Katrîne, is the highest mountain in Egypt. It is located near the city of Saint Catherine in the South Sinai Governorate. The name is derived from the Christian tradition that angels transported to this mountain the body of the martyred Saint Catherine of Alexandria.
