El Fayoum from Cairo Stunning Day Tour

At 42 metres below sea level, Wadi El-Rayan is a natural reserve in the western desert of Egypt. It comprises of two lakes joined together by the only waterfall in Egypt. In order to safeguard the region’s biological, geological, and cultural values, it was declared a Protected Area in 1989. The Protected Area spans 1759 km2 in El-southern Fayoum’s region.One of Wadi El- Rayan Protected Area’s most well-known features is its waterfalls. The region protects vast swaths of desert with a diversity of topographies and landforms. Along with remains of extinct animals and ancient civilizations’ cultural heritage sites, the desert of Wadi El-Rayan is home to rare and unique natural species.


The Western Desert of Egypt’s Wadi Al-Hitan, or Whale Valley, is home to priceless fossil remnants of the earliest and currently extinct suborder of whales, the Archaeoceti. The evolution of the whale from a land-based animal to an ocean-going mammal is one of the primary storylines represented by these fossils. The world’s most significant location for the display of this stage of evolution is here. The shape and way of life of these whales throughout their metamorphosis are eloquently portrayed. Such fossils are uncommon in this location due to their abundance, quality, concentration, and accessibility as well as their position in a picturesque and protected landscape.

The earliest archeocytes can be seen in the last stages of losing their hind limbs in the fossils from Al-Hitan. It is feasible to reconstruct the local ecological and environmental circumstances of the time thanks to additional fossil material found at the site.


The Fayoum Oasis is a sizable depression that is created by the terrain southwest of Cairo. Numerous lakes, Egypt’s only permanent waterfall, and the distinctive Mudawara Mountain (Jebel al- Mudawara), which is situated to the west of Al Fayoum Lake, are all found in the region. There are three different peaks, along with one or two other lower points to the west, despite the fact that it is more of a rock structure than a true mountain. Your attention is drawn to it by its lovely layered appearance and the feature’s seeming symmetry.

Interestingly, despite El Fayoum’s surface elevation being 118 feet below sea level, the peak offers a number of enjoyable scrambles, each of which provides a stunning view of the surrounding landscape.

A temple dedicated to the cobra-goddess Renenutet was built at Medinet Madi, a location in southwest Egypt’s Fayoum region with ruins of a Greco-Roman town, during the reigns of Amenemhat III and Amenemhat IV. It was later enlarged and renovated during the Greco-Roman era.
