Colored Canyon

It lies between St. Catherine's Monastery and the town of Nuweiba. It is a natural formation of sandstone and limestone of various colours worn away over the centuries by rains draining from the mountain top.

Exquisite patterns have been formed of a myriad colours forming patterns of all shapes and sizes. Some resemble woodgrain – others surrealism paintings – but these are note man made. Different shapes and colours greet you upon every turn.

It has become a popular safari trek and The strange rock formations and the rainbow- hued colored canyon walls are dramatic and the silence within -only adds to the oddity. Great for walking or rock-climbing
