Watch sunrise from the top of Mount Sinai on a hiking trip from Sharm el Sheikh to one of Egypt’s highest mountains. You’ll climb the 7,497-foot (2,285-mt.) peak in the predawn darkness, see first light illuminate the mountaintop chapel and mosque, then descend to the 6th-century Monastery of St. Catherine, built where Moses is believed to have seen the Burning Bush. With round-trip transport from Sharm el Sheikh, this is a great way to experience Mount Sinai and St. Catherine even if you have limited time in Egypt.

This was an amazing experience, but I must say it is the most demanding physical thing I've done, including running a marathon. There is a steady climb to the top, unsure footing, darkness,, cold on the way up and hot on the way down, and pretty strenuous for 3 hours. We did not utilize the camels for the first part, but might not be a bad idea.
We went in May 2017.
