Lake Nasser Egypt

Lake Nasser is a man made lake and one of the largest man made in the world. Divided into 2 parts with the majority of it belonging to the Egyptian side at 83% and the rest belonging to the Sudanese territories.Known as Lake Nubia, it rescues many Sudanese migrants who were flooded out of their homes after the great floods of the Nile. 


Approximately a 3 hour drive from the City of Aswan, 6 hours from Luxor, or 1 hour flight from Cairo to Abu Simbel at Lake Nasser. 


The Nubian communities who lived along the Nile for thousands of years lost their homes, land and much of their rich culture to the dams and lake, but many of the ancient monuments were relocated to drier ground, with help from the international community. These include the little visited Temple of Mandulis at Kalabsha. This healing Temple, dedicated to the Nubian fertility god Marul (Mandulis in Greek), was mostly rebuilt during the Ptolemaic-Roman period, which is obvious from the blend of styles on the fine wall carvings. Next door is the photogenic Ptolemaic Kiosk of Kertassi and the small rock-hewn Temple of Beit al wali. This was built in honour of Ramses II, who is shown on the colourful reliefs in a battle with the rebellious Nubians. The interesting but more remote temple groups of Wadi al Sebua, Dakka and Amada and the fortress site of Qasr Ibrim can only be visited on a luxury cruise, although new roads are being built. Fishing trips are increasingly popular on the blue waters of the lake, which is home to a few crocodiles, the elusive tiger fish and the huge Nile perch one of the largest freshwater fish.Fishing has also become a very popular pastime at Lake Nasser with several international competitions being held each year.
