Formed in the 1960’s by the construction of the Aswan High Dam in order to control the annual floods of the River Nile, Lake Nasser is the world’s largest artificial lake. Surrounded by remote desert which covers the land of Nubia,Lake Nasser is the site of many tombs, temples and churches.  

Before the high dam was constructed monuments were moved from their original sites and grouped together at four locations Kalabsha, Wadi-as-Subua, Amada and of course the famous temples of Ramses II and Queen Nefertari at Abu Simbel.  A cruise on Lake Nasser gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy

serene desert vistas and to explore the ancient Nubian temples and monuments
