Welcome to the Hidden Pyramids of Meidum, Hawara, and Lahun Tour! On this fascinating day trip from Cairo, you’ll have the opportunity to explore some of Egypt’s most intriguing pyramids, which are often overlooked by visitors in favor of the more famous Pyramids of Giza.
You tour begins when you meet your tour guide at your hotel in Cairo, to begin your transfer to the Fayoum Oasis, where two pyramids are located, the Hawara and Lahun pyramids. As you journey through the beautiful desert landscapes of Egypt, our knowledgeable guide will provide insights into the country’s ancient history and the significance of the pyramids.
Your first stop is at the Hawara Pyramid in the city of Crocodilopolis. This pyramid is known for its labyrinthine internal structure, which includes a complex network of corridors and chambers. It was built as the final resting place of the pharaoh Amenemhat III, one of Egypt’s most powerful rulers.
You next stop is at the Lahun Pyramid in the village of Lahun, which is notable for its well-preserved mortuary temple and for being the final resting place of the pharaoh Senusret II. Our guide will provide a detailed explanation of the pyramid’s history and significance, and you’ll have plenty of time to explore the site and take photos.
Your final stop will be at the Meidum Pyramid. The Meidum Pyramid was originally built as a step pyramid with three layers, but during construction, the architects decided to convert it into a true pyramid by filling in the steps and creating a smooth outer surface. However, this conversion was not completely successful, and the pyramid suffered from structural problems over the years, including collapses and damage from earthquakes.
After a full day of exploring these hidden pyramids, you’ll return to Cairo in the late afternoon.
