Bent Pyramid tour


Let's start our excursion to Dahshur pyramid from the early pick up from your Cairo hotel. Transfer to the area will not take much time, but you will enjoy the authentic views whoile driving in a modern air-conditioned vehicle.

Our tour includes visit to one of the best preserved pyramids in the necropolis - The Bent Pyramid. It owes its name to its singular shape: almost half way up the face the angle of the slope passes from 50*40’ to 43*. The Bent Pyramid is King Senefru’s second attempt to build a complete smooth-sided pyramid. Archaeologists believe that the Bent Pyramid is a transitional form between the step-sided pyramid of king Djoser in the Saqqara Necropolis and smooth-sided pyramid, such as Senefru’s Red Pyramid in the Dahshur Necropolis and those of the Giza plateau.

The bent pyramid is a unique example of early pyramid development in Egypt.
