Tutankhamun is probably the most famous pharaoh in Egypt. He was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. He died at a very early age and his tomb was discovered by Howard Carter in November 1922.

His tomb lies in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt and is a very popular destination for tourists. If you are looking to go to Egypt for an adventure holiday then this is one place you must visit. Although many of the artefacts have been removed from the tomb you can still see the hieroglyphics on the walls and many of the wonders that were left in situ. Trips to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt are not cheap but are a once in a lifetime experience. Whilst there you can visit a number of other tombs as well as travelling to see the Pyramids.

When travelling to Egypt you do have to be careful as they are currently on a high level of alert for security issues involving terrorism.
