Mount Sinai in Egypt is preceded by a reputation almost as towering as the mountain itself. In the Judeo-Christian faith, Moses was leading his flock to graze when he came upon a message from God commanding him to lead the Hebrew people out of oppression and to the safety of the mountain. Climbing up the sacred Mount Sinai, Moses received the Ten Commandments. For this reason, Mount Sinai is a highly popular destination for tourists hoping to learn more about their faith, or just to make the fulfilling trek up the mountain to catch a beautiful sunrise. Afterward, be sure to stop by a tiny, rustic chapel which was built atop the foundation of a church from the 16th century. In order to reach the mountain well before sunrise, you may wish to stay at one of these great accommodation options located conveniently near the site.
