Discover Egypt’s Untouched Beauty in the Heart of the Mountains

Discover Egypt’s Untouched Beauty in the Heart of the Mountains

Like a surreal painting where time stands still, the city of St Catherine in Egypt’s South Sinai has become a destination for all of those who are in pursuit of inner peace, and sanctuary for the soul.

Resting 1600 meters above sea level and surrounded by Egypt’s highest mountain chains, the city of St Catherine is famous for its tourism which varies from religious to adventure travel.

Considered to be rather secluded, the city of St Catherine along with its inhabitants have not been touched by many features of modernity, including the hard feelings that brew out of the daily pressures of the big cities.

While some people prefer to spend their stay at one of St Catherine’s camps and eco-lodges, the majority of its visitors would rather hike up Egypt’s highest summit Mount St Catherine, or Mount Sinai. Despite the overwhelming pleasure of being surrounded by the grandeur of nature, it is almost indisputable that the people of the mountain are core to the joy of visiting the city and it’s mountains.

To explore and narrate how the beautiful souls coexist with the rigid life of the rocky trails, Ahmed Atef, founder of DeeeVa, produced a short video narrating snippets of life in St Catherine through the eyes of its people.

So sit back, and indulge in beautiful footage from one of Egypt’s most serene places.
