Pick up from your accommodation in Khartoum and then departure northward. After 5 hours’ drive across the Nubian Region we catch the sight of the Jebel Barkal,Jebel» means mountain in Arabic) an improbable landmark in the desert.  The small town of Karima is situated nearby. Just after our arrival, we start the visit of El Kurru where there is one of the necropolises of the ancient capital, Napata.  Here we can visit one tomb, which are excavated in the rock under pyramids – partially collapsed – and are totally decorated with images of the Pharaoh, of the gods and multicolour hieroglyphic inscriptions. Not far from here there is an interesting site of Petrified Forest, an ancient forest with hundreds of huge trunks. In the evening return to Karima, accommodation at the Nubian Rest House, dinner and overnight stay.
