Our SPT Tours certificated tour guide will pickup you from your hotel and start the tour with High Dam.
Before the High Dam was built, even with the old dam in place, the annual flooding of the Nile during late summer had continued to pass largely unimpeded down the valley from its East African . These floods brought high water with natural nutrients and minerals that annually enriched the fertile soil along its floodplain and delta; this predictability had made the Nile valley ideal for farming since ancient times. However, this natural flooding varied, since high-water years could destroy the whole crop, while low-water years could create widespread drought and associated famine. Both these events had continued to occur periodically.

between 1960 and 1970, The High Dam was Built as the world's largest embankment dam built across the Nile in Aswan, Egypt, . Its significance largely eclipsed the previous Aswan Low Dam initially completed in 1902 downstream. Based on the success of the Low Dam, then at its maximum utilization, construction of the High Dam became a key objective of the government following the Egyptian Revolution of 1952; with its ability to better control flooding, provide increased water storage for irrigation and generate hydroelectricity the dam was seen as pivotal to Egypt's planned industrialization. Like the earlier implementation, the High Dam has had a significant effect on the economy and culture of Egypt.

After Visit The High Dam, our tour guide you will move you to The temple of Kalabsha
The current location of the Kalabsha temple on the banks of Lake Nasser is not the original location of the temple, as it was moved in 1970 to the new place which was called (New Kalabsha). The transfer also included some of the effects of the seizure, which was threatened by drowning. The temple was dedicated to the cult of the Nubian god Mandulis, the god of fertility and the sun for the Nubians, and the temple began to be built by the Roman Emperor Octavius Augustus (30-14 BC). Where the temple was considered at the time one of the largest temples in the Egyptian Nubian style. The temple design is the most popular design in that period of the Ptolemaic period. It contains an edifice, an open courtyard, a pillar hall, in addition to three rooms for the Holy of Holies. It is believed that the temple was built on ancient buildings dating back to the reign of Ptolemy IX, which is evident from the temple shrine. Inside the courtyard, which surrounded one day between its side a row of columns on three sides. On the wall separating the courtyard and pillar hall is an inscription by Aurelius Pisarion, ruler of Ambos and Aswan (circa 249 AD), that is declared in the inscription that pigs are expelled from the town for religious purposes. On the back of the corridor are scenes depicting a Ptolemaic kings offering offerings to Isis and Mendolis. There is also a view of King Amenhotep the Second, who founded the original temple, depicting him offering offerings of wine to the God of Maine and Mendolis. After the vestibule there are three rooms where the temple sarcophagus is located, as well as various scenes showing the king surrounded by the gods of Upper and Lower Egypt, where there are Amon, Ptah and Min. The king also receives the holy water of purification from Thoth and Horus. There are also other scenes depicting the king offering offerings to Osiris, Isis and Mendolis.

After Visiting the temple of Kalabsha, you will discover another Nubian temple for goddess Isis which known as Philae temple.

Philae,  is an island in the reservoir of the Aswan Low Dam, downstream of the Aswan Dam and Lake Nasser. Philae was originally located near the expansive First Cataract of the Nile in Upper Egypt and was the site of an Egyptian temple complex. These rapids and the surrounding area have been variously flooded since the initial construction of the Aswan Low Dam in 1902.[ The temple complex was dismantled and moved to nearby Agilkia Island as part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign project, protecting this and other complexes before the 1970 completion of the Aswan High Dam.
