Group events on the Sinai Trail 2019

The Bedouin cooperative of the Sinai Trail operates trips on the trail. Sometimes, these are special hikes of the whole trail; other times, they are shorter events. Creating work on the Sinai Trail is important for the project: this is what gets people working and this is what really supports local communities.

THRU HIKE 2019

This time we’ll be walking the first 38 days of the trail and we’re breaking the route down into THREE parts: PART 1 and 2 of 12 days each and PART 3 of 14 days. The first part is from Ras Shetan on the Gulf of Aqaba coast to Ein Kidd where there is a beautiful oasis with palms and bamboo. This first section of the route will be guided by the Tarabin and Muzeina tribes. On the second part the route continues from Ein Kidd to the highlands of St. Katherine. You will walk through narrow wadis, cross high passes and climb some of the highest peaks in Egypt with the Awlad Said and Jebeleya tribe. The third part runs from St. Katherine to Serabit el Khadem via some of the Sinai’s most remote wadis and mountains, with the Jebeleya, Awlad Said, Gararsha, Hamada, Sowalha and Alegat tribe.  Read More

SHORT TRIPS

29th – 30th March 2019 – Three Peaks Egypt Challenge: 
The Three Peaks Egypt Challenge is the Sinai’s toughest mountain challenge: 40km, with over 5000m of ascent/ descent, taking in three of Egypt’s most iconic peaks. The Three Peaks Egypt Challenge is a community-founded hiking initiative that seeks to kick-start mountain tourism and get more people out into the beautiful mountains of the Sinai. The Three Peaks Egypt was founded by the same team that founded the Sinai Trail – voted one of the best new hiking trails in the world – including Salem Abu Ramadan and Faraj ‘The Fox’ Mahmoud of the Jebeleya tribe and the UK’s Ben Hoffler and it has been open to the public and completed by people from Egypt and all around the world since 2015. Now is your chance to give it a try!

29th – 31st March 2019 – Culture & Walking Trip – Women Only
This is a special trip just for the ladies! The aim of this fantastic new trip is to bring a group of women to visit the ladies and families of the Hamada tribe. We want to support the Bedouin women in having a stronger presence on the Sinai Trail. We will take you to the village of the Hamada tribe, inland from Serabit el Khadem, where we will stay with local families and live like Bedouin for 3 days. The Hamada ladies will take us on interesting walks each day and we will return to their homes at night. They will tell us stories, teach us about the area, the plants and daily life. In the evening you can watch/help them make their traditional bread, tend to the goats and enjoy true Bedouin hospitality.
