I visited Cairo in November of 2017. I have wanted to see the pyramids forever and decided that this was the time. They did not disappoint!
The Red Pyramid of Egypt is the largest of the three pyramids of Dashur. It is located in Cairo, Egypt. Though the third largest pyramid n Egypt overall, the Red Pyramid is special because it was the first successful attempt at constructing a smooth-sided pyramid. The pyramid is so named because of its red limestone exterior.
What makes this pyramid super cool is that you can actually go inside of the pyramid. This is not for the faint of heart. You must climb the stone steps until you reach a 3 foot by 4 foot entrance. You then scale 200 feet down into the pyramid at a 27 degree angle. This was super scary for me, as evidenced by the video I took:
Here are a few shots of the entrance. I still can’t believe I went in there.
