Serabit el-Khadim سرابيط الخادم is located 60 KM after Ras Sudr, in the southwest Sinai Peninsula, Egypt, where turquoise semi-precious stones were mined extensively in antiquity, mainly by the ancient Egyptians. Archaeological excavations, initially revealed ancient mining camps and a long-lived Temple of Hathor, the Egyptian Goddess who was favored as a protector in desert regions.
The area is a remote untamed desert mountain, surrounded with breathtaking sand dunes & rock formations. The area also has a religious background as it overlooks the Tieh mountains جبال التية where the Jews were lost in the Sinai desert for 40 years.
The mysterious Hathor temple is based 850 meters above sea level on top of the Serabit mountains, a scenery that not many people in the world has laid eyes on.
The Serabit Challenge will be the first of its kind, involving a long hike, walk run, and climb going through the temple area on a rocky terrain, crossing from one side of the mountain to the other.
The objective of this event is to have a fitness challenge that sheds the light on this historical area and create awareness about its deserted magnificence. And the plan to make this an annual challenge.
So, join us on December 15th, and be the first to participate in this unique adventurous experience.
