The basics

Among the most important destinations on Luxor’s West Bank, the Temple of Hatshepsut is an included stop on many tours; since it’s a 30-minute drive from downtown, it’s worth visiting other destinations while you’re in the area. When you arrive, enter through the great court then continue up a long ramp to a series of terraces and colonnades. Portions of the temple are still unreconstructed, and there is little signage inside, so visiting with a guide is a good way to understand what you’re seeing.

How to get there

The Temple of Hatshepsut is located on Kings Valley Road on Luxor’s West Bank. If you’re visiting as part of a tour, transport will be taken care of. Independent travelers can book a taxi for the 30-minute trip from downtown, but be sure to agree on a price and other details before departure. A wheeled tram shuttles visitors from the entrance to the temple site and requires an extra ticket.

When to get there

As with other Luxor sites, the Temple of Hatshepsut gets very hot in the afternoon, and it’s worth visiting early to avoid the heat of the day. If you’re hoping to photograph the temple, sunrise and sunset are especially scenic times—the cliffs seem to glow in the morning and evening light.
