Location of “Valley Of The Kings” :Luxor,Luxor Governorate,Egypt.
The Valley of the Kings, otherwise called the Valley of the Gates of the Kings, is a valley in Egypt where, for a time of almost 500 years from the sixteenth to eleventh century BC, shake cut tombs were exhumed for the pharaohs and ground-breaking nobles of the New Kingdom.
Beauty Of valley of the kings:
A MUST VISIT while in Egypt and Luxor, the Valley of the Kings is situated on the West Bank of the Nile. The Valley contains 63 tombs for Kings and Queens over a time of almost 500 years from the sixteenth to eleventh century BC.
There are surrey trains which will take you to the tomb territory and there is some simple strolling included to get to explicit tombs.
We figured out how to visit 4 tombs – most remarkably King Tut’s tomb (which requires an extra charge) and Ramses IV tomb which is extremely bright and mysterious. Ruler Tut’s tomb even has his preserved body shown on the left while on the correct side are dividers painted with monkeys and rulers and divine beings. What is fascinating to note is that as of late, scientists have established that this divider is probably going to have 3 extra chambers and they are suspecting that there could even be another tomb covered up – perhaps Queen Nefertiti’s tomb?
A portion of the tombs, for example, Horemheb’s tomb are extremely somewhere inside the mountains and we needed to move in any event 25 feet to 30 feet down.
Word of warning In Valley of Kings and Queens:
they are fairly exacting about the no photographs arrangement particularly inside the tombs and we saw a German visitor being found snapping a picture with his cell phone inside the bright Ramses IV tomb. He was fined about USD100 by the casually dressed gatekeepers who do their rounds masked as voyagers or guests.

Overview Of Valley of Kings and Queens :
The Valley of the Kings in Upper Egypt contains a considerable lot of the tombs of pharaohs from the New Kingdom, including Tutankhamun and Ramesses the Great. The Valley of the Kings really has two segments – the East Valley and the West Valley. It is the East Valley which most vacationers visit and in which the greater part of the tombs of the New Kingdom Pharaohs can be found. (The West Valley has just a single remote tomb open to people in general, that of Ay who was Tutankhamun’s successor.)
One of the issues for the ordinary traveler is attempting to choose which tombs to enter. The typical ticket licenses three tombs and that will presumably get the job done for one visit. On the off chance that you surge, you won’t acknowledge or recall the subtleties of every tomb. The tomb of Tutankhamun requires a different ticket (the cover of Tutankamun can be found in the Cairo historical center).
Not all tombs are open and authorities at times close specific tombs for reclamation. The style of the tombs underwent changes all through the New Kingdom and one should attempt to see models from the range of 500 years that the Valley was being used.
The tomb of Tuthmose III is at the furthest part of the bargain Valley and is one of the most punctual in the Valley. Its entombment chamber is in the state of a cartouche (oval-molded) and its engravings are scattered with stick figures.
