After 10 years of restoration Chephren Pyramid opens

After conflict and the uprising last year, Egypt has suffered a significant decline in tourist visits. Now, with the reopening of one of the great pyramids of Giza, the country is hoping to lure back travelers.

 After 10 years of restoration, the Pyramid of Khafre, the second largest pyramid in Giza Necropolis, has been reopened. Supposedly built as a tomb for Pharaoh Khafre of the Fourth Dynasty of ancient Egypt, the pyramid rises to a height of about 136 meters. Also expected to open six new graves in the near future.

 This was not the first time that the pyramids were closed for restoration. In the 1990s, a plan of management of archaeological sites, found that the large number of visitors received for years had provacado humidity levels inside elevasen structures are up to 80%.

 In fact, the research found that every visitor who enters the pyramid releases about 20 grams of water vapor through sweating, causing damage to the plaster walls.

 Even with this news, and some others, of which we have been echoed in Traveler's Journal, even today there are many travelers who are hesitant to visit the land of the Pharaohs. We hope to get everything back to normal soon.
