  • This is the second largest pyramid in Egypt, it is fascinating and one must go inside the pyramid on a great spiritual path.  more »
  • Getting inside this pyramid is as much exciting as getting into the Great Pyramid. By the way, Khafre's pyramid IS NOT the Great pyramid, although it seems larger than that of Khafre's father, Khufu.....  more »
  • Looks taller than the "great" pyramid as it is on a higher elevation. This one does not have an entrance to it like the great pyramid does  more »
  • Such an amazing attraction. What's really interesting about it, is the mystery about the way it was constructed with these massive rocks. It's really marvelous especially in the morning/day time. It's one of the best attractions I have been to, it's worth while. Make sure to wear sans suitable/walking shoes so that you are able to enjoy the whole experience. It's a must go attraction, don't miss it.
  • It's amazing to these structures in person, photos don't do it justice!!
  • You definitely have to visit this. Although other pyramids further away have less tourists and are more in the desert thus you have a different experience more. Relaxing which I appreciated very much. I am thinking of dashour. Do note one thing, it is horrible how the camels and horses are treated at gizah. I find it criminal to pay for these services. Even if you're not specifically interested in these subjects, look it up, you will see beforehand and if you don't believe me, look inside. Please. Don't condone this. One thing is animal exploitation another thing is animal cruelty. Think it twice. Believe me I walked around the pyramids and I think it's a great experience because you get closer, you are not running but really taking them in and although they will insist that walking is not doable because it's too big, that's completely false, most of the people inside actually walk around.
  • I can't give this place what is deserve
  • You can go inside the pyramid, cool !
