This quarantined valley is surrounded by the pyramid shaped mountain called Al Qurn which translates to the Horn. There are 63 stunning royal tombs in the valley of the kings. Over the years these toms have suffered greatly due to the floods, treasure hunters and the overflow of tourists which have affected the paintings which were made over the limestone. Due to this, the Department of Antiquities have developed a rotation system where only a limited number of tombs are open to public at any given time. you should be aware and remember that photography and video is not allowed inside the tombs!
