A good news for all the hikers and nature lovers who wish to travel to the scenic land of Egypt is the newly opened Red Sea Mountain Trail. Wholly owned by the local tribe of Maaza, the main objective of this trail is to convey an authentic experience of the rugged mountainscapes coming together with the Egyptian winds and the Bedouin tribes. It keeps getting better from here.
In fact, if it wasn’t for the local folks, we wouldn’t even be knowing about this trail as it is the commonly used passage by these tribes for various purposes such as hunting and trading. Passing on their knowledge to all the travelers, the communities also benefit as it helped to create this Egyptian long-distance hiking trail, thereby employing their people for the same.
As per a statement made by one of the main founders of the trail, Ben Hoffler, this trail is about redefining the tourism of Hurghada region and gradually increasing the role of Bedouin folks as leaders, presenting them a chance to portray their heritage to the entire world at the same time.
What’s special about this hike is that not only will there be Bedouin cameleers and guides accompanying the travelers throughout the route, authentic cuisine will also be provided for an extravagant experience. Taking down a walk into the glorious past of this region, especially via this trail takes around 10 days to cover the entire hike. If this hasn’t enticed you yet, we don’t know what will!
