I visited a couple of years ago during the unrest and it was clear that the maintenance of antiquity sites was in trouble. This tomb is one for which you pay extra following the installation of LED lighting and it wasn't working. Here we are...More

Amazing hieroglyphics on the walls, colors still intact. Overwhelming to walk down the ramp into the cool depths and see the paintings and carvings still standing so many years later.

Our tour group visited Valley of the Kings as one of the last in 10 days, and it certainly left the best till last. The blue ceiling at the bottom of this tomb was nothing short of overwhelming. Sorry no photos from inside, not permitted

the size of this tomb is just crazy, very impressive to see how everything is still in place and how the colors are almost untouched by time

All of the Tombs in the Valley of the Kings are wonderful and should be seen if visiting the area. It is hard to believe the age of this Tomb.

Probably one of the best Tombs you will see in Egypt. It is big and the sarcophagus in the burial chamber is very impressive. A lot of drawings with great importance. You need a tour guide to understand everything
