Always worth a visit – a wonderful desert landscape including the cultural heritage of the valley of the Whales, Wadi El Hitan. It is a paleontological site in the Fayum Governorate of Egypt, some 150 kilometres south-west of Cairo. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in July 2005 for its hundreds of fossils of some of the earliest forms of whale, the archaeoceti.

The new museum at the entrance will provide you with additional information about the evolution of the surrounding valley and the whales that used to live there.

The walk through the remains of the sea-world in the middle of the desert is a “must see” in Egypt.
