Ay's tomb is in the Western Valley, up a side canyon from the main Valley of the Kings. You'll need a car to get up here and you'll have to wake the guard in his little hut. Then he will unlock the door and you'll descend down a long corridor into he burial chamber. Not eh best tomb in the... 更多
Using our Luxor Pass, we decided to visit Ay. His tomb is in the Valley of the Monkeys. This valley is not commercialised for visitors, and it's easy to imagine the way the Valley of the Kings was 100 years ago. The tomb is visited from the beginning of the Valley of the Kings, check that it is open, because... 更多
This tomb is in the western valley, which is called the valley of Monkeys also. This needs a separate ticket. When I visited it, I was the only visitor there. We picked up the site guardian on our way, who was asleep in his hut. He unlocked the tomb for me and went inside with me. The tomb is of... 更多
The tomb is not enormous, nor very lavish, however it is really worth a visit. You have to find a taxi driver who is prepared to take you up there. Some don't want the hassle, and it might be that you have to offer a bit more money. It is a bit of a drive up the almost unvisited Valley... 更多
I love going to Tomb of Ay in the Valley of the Monkeys. It's in the Western Valley of the Valley of the Kings and it's just awesome. Not allowed to take photos inside though.
I honestly don't remember much of the tomb, what I DO remember is the adventure to get there. Seek permission to drive to this little visited site, someone will call and let the caretaker know you are coming. He let us both unlock then lock the tomb at the end of our visit. Of course we got pictures, how often... 更多
This rarely visited tomb is especially interesting if you have been to Tutankhamun's tomb as it has similar paintings like the wall of baboons. The tomb is beautiful and well preserved. The long descent is very steep and you are likely to be on your own in the eerie silence of the western valley. Ask your taxi to take you... 更多
Finally visiited the tomb of Ay this year. Walked the 2 kilometres up the Western Valley which is peacefully quiet. The custodian unlocked the tomb for us as not many people visit this site. Well worth the extra effort. Beautiful wall paintings and a large granite sarcophagus make the walk here worthwhile.
I'd wanted to visit The Valley of the Monkeys for some time and we finally had the opportunity.Wow! Buy your tickets at the entrance to the Valley of the Kings, go back to the car park and turn right at the dirt road as you face the exit from the Valley of the Kings - you can walk but we... 更多
