The view from on top of the Great Pyramid

Cheops raskalov_vit:

I want to tell you a little story about how we climbed to the top of one of the seven wonders of the world.We had to hide from the guards at the Tomb near the foot of Cheops. Climb the stone slabs on the most ancient structure of humanity to the sounds of prayers. It was one of the most intense nights of my life. Many thanks to good friends who accompanied and supported the idea.

While I can’t condone the climbing of these beautiful and ancient structures, the view from the top must be magnificent. I’ve been to the Great Pyramids at Giza and some things are striking – how massive they are and how close the city of Cairo actually is, for example.
