Meroe Pyramids, River Nile State

#1 of 17 in Historic Sites in Sudan
Witness the often-overlooked World Heritage Site of Meroe Pyramids, built to hold the tombs of kings and queens that used to rule in this area. Lying in the vast desert next to the Nile, the pyramids number more than 200 and are split into three groups. With their narrow bases and steep sides, they cut an unusual profile. You can walk among the brick structures and inspect the scriptures and wall reliefs. Make sure to bring lots of water and wear proper attire for an outing in the desert.
