Welcome to Begrawiya (Meroe)
One word: awesome. The one sight that is seen by almost all of Sudan's few visitors are the deeply romantic pyramids of Begrawiya (Meroe). Although they were declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2011, these splendid ancient structures have been largely overshadowed by their better-publicised Egyptian counterparts and remain so far a hidden treasure. No mass tourism here – you'll probably feel like an explorer wandering among untouched, mysterious ruins, with very few souvenir sellers in sight. One thing is sure: visiting Begrawiya is a memorable journey back in time.
