 Luxor West Bank Theban Valley Kings Egyptian shuttle train conservation entry that takes you from the visitors centre coach park to the main Tomb area thereby reducing pollution by denying all the large touring coaches entry to this fragile ecology and historically most important area. It also looks for a degree of visitor control for these days many more tourists enter this very small area coming in coach convoys from the Red Sea Resorts and not just the River Nile cruiseboats which used to be the major source of vistor numbers. This is one of the most visited places in the world probably and certainly in Egypt is this desolate desert valley beneath the Theban mountain on the West Bank of the River Nile at Luxor famous for some of the most important Royal burials of this ancient civilisation. It is possible to climb over the hills above the Valley, pass above the huge amphitheatre of Deir el-Bahri above Hatshepsut’s spectacular Mortuary Temple and come down into Deir el-Medina, the workers village using the same paths as they must have done over 3000 years ago.
