Bahr, an eco-tour agency, will host THE TRIBE hike at Mount Elbanat in May, inviting hikers of all skill levels and ages from Egypt. The event is a level 2 or moderate hike, perfect for beginners—especially groups or families with young members.
Triple-Day Hike in Mount Elbanat
The TRIBE hike is one of Bahr’s activities that features the advantage of hiking as a sport and living in the mountains with no sign of modern civilization for relaxation. The hike only welcomes the Bedouin life and the quietness of South Sinai’s mountain.
Here’s the full itinerary from day 1 to 3:
Day 1 (Thursday)
- Arrival at St. Cathrine before sunrise
- Morning break at an eco-lodge before starting the route and first hike through St. Catherines’ mountains
Reach the base camp of Mount Elanat to spend the night
Day 2 (Friday)
- Second hike to Elbanat Mountain summit to enjoy the view; hike down going through Elnabatia village to enjoy the story of an ancient civilization
- Lunch at the main camp
- Campfire and dinner
Day 3 (Saturday)
- Last lunch and breakfast
- Journey back to the city
The hike is open to participants as young as 10 years old, provided that young members and minors have accompanying guardians. Families, solo female hikers, and couples are welcome to join.
