Historic sites only accessible by sailing boat

Sail the Nile - Gebel SilsilaOne of the many joys of a sailing Nile cruise is the ability to visit the smaller Pharonic sites that have no mooring for the larger cruise boats. A particular favorite is Gebel Silsila where you stay the night directly in front of the floodlit Speos of Horemheb. As well as the Speos there are many chapels along the bank of the Nile and of course the fantastic quarries themselves.  Stunning to see the marks of Pharoahs workforce and to wonder which temple that block went to.
