Amazing Travel Facts Egypt

You have all heard of the seven wonders of the ancient world, right? But did you know that only one of them has survived? It weighs 6 million ton and was built around 2700 BC.
 
Amazing, right?
 
Do you know where we need to travel to see this ancient wonder?
 
And that ancient Wonder is the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
 
The original list of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World comes from a work by Philo of Byzantium written in 225 B.C. called On The Seven Wonders.
The Great Pyramid, located at Giza on the west bank of the Nile River north of Cairo in Egypt, is the only wonder of the ancient world that has survived to the present day. It is part of a group of three pyramids–Khufu (Cheops), Khafra (Chephren) and Menkaura (Mycerimus)–that were built between 2700 B.C. and 2500 B.C. as royal tombs.
 
The largest and most impressive is Khufu, known as “The Great Pyramid,” which covers 13 acres and is believed to contain more than 2 million stone blocks that weigh from two to 30 tons each.
 
For more than 4,000 years, Khufu reigned as the tallest building in the world. In fact, it took modern man until the 19th century to build a taller structure. Amazingly, the nearly symmetrical Egyptian pyramids were built without the aid of modern tools or surveying equipment.
