Coloured Canyon

Canyon in Sinai Coast

This canyon derives its name from the layers of bright, multicoloured stones that resemble paintings on its steep, narrow walls. It's magnificently beautiful. As the canyon is sheltered from the wind, the silence is one of its most impressive features. It's a favourite day trip from both Dahab and Sharm El Sheikh, so unfortunately the ambience can be destroyed somewhat if a couple of large bus tours arrive at the same time.
