But the first one is unpaved; it starts from Cairo and is suitable for lovers of safari and adventure. The second is from Salloum on the Egyptian- Libyan boarders. And after driving hundreds of kilometers in the arid deserts, we found ourselves suddenly in a great slope, and we saw a view of the sweetest scenery and delighted, a lawns of grapes, trees and clear springs bright, and the center and also on the edges, we saw clay buildings, short and fragile, those were the houses of the people of Siwa, their homes and gleaming silver squares, which turned out to be lakes and tall buildings that turned out to be a mountain of the dead in a palm forest, and a black cloud that turned out to be the great mountain of Dakrur.

He walked on the same land and perhaps on the same road. The dates, grapes and olives were in his procession, His remains are still standing today, he reached the Amun temple, which is built over a great rock, and looks like a fortified castle. Alexander ascended to him and passed through his gates and guarded his narrow corridors until he reached the meeting room. There he was declared as a son of God.
We took the bus stop in the center of Siwa. The sun was bright and close, and the light was white as moonlight, and we went to the “Bab al-Anshal” (means: The door was lifted from its place). It was built at the castle of Shali, which is the architectural origin of Siwa. And the hotel is an environment that preserves its old architectural style. It is considered one of the distinguishing features of the present Siwa, where we ate a delicious Siwan breakfast of herbs and various desserts, and of course olive in all its forms and colors.
We drove to the “Mount of the Dead”, which is a high plateau with lots of tombs of the Romans and the Pharaohs, and then we headed to the Temple of Amun, then Clepatra’s Bath, and then area of Dakrur mountain, which is famous of healing bone diseases by covering the body with hot sand.
