Aswan High Dam

High Dam or El Saad al Aali in Arabic was an engineering miracle when it was built in 1960s. It's not to be confused with old Aswan Dam, which is much smaller and 6 km downstream. To visit High Dam, we need to pay EGP 5 each as admission was not included in tour package.

A view from the vantage point in the middle of High Dam towards the "Lotus Flower" tower which honouring Soviet-Egyptian friendship and cooperation. The vantage point in on the dam itself, so you won't be able to have a full view of the dam itself.

Nile after the Aswan High Dam. As we were on top of High Dam, there were the best scenery other than Lake Nasser behind the dam. To the right you will find a lot of power generators.
