Exploring Egypt and Its Pyramids

The song “Pyramid” was composed for a reason. Pyramids are the most sought-for locations when exploring Egypt, and it’s no wonder, because Egypt is the only country with them. While there are 138 discovered in the country, my favorite ones are these:

The Pyramid of Djedefre is, in my opinion, the most interesting one among the listed pyramids in this article. Located in Abu Rawash, it was thought to be incomplete, until scientists found out it was originally about the size of the Pyramid of Menkaure, which could have made it one of the largest pyramids. It may look like a big pile of rubble, but believe me, it is (that is, was) a pyramid.

More Pyramids to See While Exploring Egypt

When exploring Egypt, another one of the great pyramids you could visit is The Step Pyramid of Dyoser. It looks like a pyramid with steps on it, thus its name. The Pyramid of Dyoser is the first pyramid built, and it is believed to be the first stone monument in the world!

However, if you long for the traditional pyramid-shaped pyramid, unlike the previous two, you might want to go to the Red Pyramid. While it’s really not colored red, it is the first ever perfectly shaped pyramid, near its imperfect cousin in Dahshur, The Bent Pyramid.

Another great sight to see is the Pyramid of Khafre when exploring Egypt. Although this one is shorter than the pyramid of Khafre’s father, Khufu, it’s still a wonderful tourist attraction and something worthy of pictures.

A Must-See Pyramid When Exploring Egypt

But you know what pyramid you have to visit when exploring Egypt? The Great Pyramid of Giza (The Great Pyramid of Khufu), as it is Earth’s largest pyramid. Moreover, it is actually the only 1 of the original 7 Wonders of the World that’s still standing today.

Now, isn’t that song “Pyramid” worth singing to now?
