The exclusive hike trail of mount Abbas in St. Catherine is a designed trip for those who are willing to go off the beaten track and explore the ruins of King Abbas site.
Khedeive Abbas or the King of Egypt a century ago built a castle on the top of a Mountain Peak. Fancy hah. News spread about a plague, probably ta3oon, and he wanted a place in the safest zone, hence the choice of this clear weather area on top of the mountains. He died before the castle was completed leaving this Mountain peak with great ruins that really looks awesome. The castle ruins lie on the same altitude as Machu Picchu but with no surrounding greenery, hence it’s a bit less famous.
