    The Houf Pyramid is the only survivor of the seven wonders of the world so far and the largest pyramid. According to Herodotus, it was built by 200,000 workers in 20 years, using about 2.2 million pieces of limestone, each weighing two and a half tons. The original height of the pyramid was 146 meters, but now it is only 137 meters. The ticket to the pyramid is 80 pounds. If you want to go inside the pyramid, you need to buy 250 pounds of tickets. The pyramid has three halls at different levels. The bottom floor is not yet accessible. After entering the corridor at the entrance, the main hall is at the end of the corridor. From here, through the slope, into the Grand Art Gallery, you can come to the funeral hall where the Pharaoh's sarcophagus is preserved. In Egypt, there are many surprises waiting for you every day. Ancient historians, Roman emperors, Arab tourists, explorers, and millions of tourists heard a call from a distant place to experience the grand, ancient and mysterious ancient civilization for themselves. It 's a rewarding trip. I highly recommend it. It's just that the management inside is too messy. By carriage and camel, Chinese tourists will be pitted. Five dollars for a ride in a carriage, and ten dollars more when you get down, or you won't get down. I hope the Egyptian Tourism Bureau will be rectified.

    The Houf Pyramid, the largest pyramid in the world, is the only remaining building among the seven ancient wonders. Here we can climb the pyramids, so we can go up high to take pictures. This kind of ancient building will not exist forever. Many places have been weathered. You can also go underground to see Pharaoh's mausoleum. It's too crowded, narrow and choking. I didn't dare to go for safety. It's a wonder of the world to be able to take pictures here and see it with your own eyes.

    Khufu Pyramid, Egypt's largest pyramid. When you buy tickets, you can see the pyramid of Houf. It's very big, spectacular and shocking. This can only be felt in person. It's much worse to see the photos. In Egypt with group tours, the tour guide took us to buy tickets, and all the luggage on the bus came down for security checks. After passing the customs, we got on the bus and put down our luggage for a visit. We went there in the afternoon. The pyramid of Houfu is a bit of a backlight, but don't go to the side. It's occupied by the local people. As long as the past can only be photographed by them, and then you can ask for money, several of our regiments have been pitted between 50 and 100 yuan. Actually, the tour guide will take us to the back for a photo tour. We were also pursued by several deceivers who pretended to be staff members, and we refused to take us to the back. The pyramids are really worth seeing, but these flies are really annoying. They trick you into taking photos, riding camels, riding horses and so on. They are tireless.

    The old city of Cairo can see the pyramids from the west. Visiting the pyramids is a must-see scenic spot in Egypt. Three pyramids are scattered on the desert Gobi. The management system in the scenic area is incomplete. Many vendors play a good role in it and ask for tips. If you go to Egypt, you are advised to bring some medicines such as cool oil, wind oil and essence as tips. Yes, it's better to exchange Egyptian pounds or small denominations in advance. In Egypt, 93 [%] people believe in Islam! Almsgiving became one of their lessons, but now it has developed into a demand for almsgiving.

    The Houf Pyramid is the largest pyramid in Egypt and one of the Giza Pyramids. The height of the tower is 146.59 meters. Due to the weathering, the top of the tower has been peeled off for 10 meters. Now it is 136.5 meters high. The tower body is made of 2.3 million huge stones, weighing 1.5 to 160 tons of different sizes and weighing about 6.84 million tons. It is the largest pyramid ever found in Egypt and the oldest and only remaining building in the seven wonders of the ancient world. Because the surface of the pyramid is ladder-like, many tourists will climb a section in the lower part of the pyramid.

    Egypt has hundreds of pyramids, the largest of which is the Houf Pyramid. It took hundreds of thousands of laborers to build it in nearly two decades. Each stone weighs tens of tons and is transported from Aswan. Paying 200 Euros can climb inside the pyramid, which can't be photographed and monitored. I can't help but take a few pictures. It's estimated that climbing the tenth floor is so high. The passageway is so short and straight that it's time to exercise. At the end of the coffin, it's supposed to be Pharaoh's tomb.

    Tickets are 80. Super hot. There are many camel renters and souvenir vendors in the scenic area. It's very annoying to follow you. But the pyramid is a must-see spot in Cairo. The Solar Boat Museum charges. It's about two hours. Metro giza, opposite the bus 2001, foreigners 2.5 pounds, will take you to the door.

    After half a day's bus ride, he finally arrived in Cairo. After lunch, he visited three of the most historic churches in the old city of Cairo. The hotel he stayed at night was next to the Pyramid of Khufu. The King of Egypt, also known as Pharaoh, was the largest slave owner in ancient Egypt. With Supreme power, they are regarded as the incarnation of gods. They built huge mausoleum pyramids for themselves, and the pyramids became the symbol of Pharaoh's power.

    The pyramid is the tomb of the ancient Egyptian pharaoh. The largest and tallest pyramid in the world is the symbol of Egypt. It is also the oldest and only remaining building in the seven wonders of the ancient world. Approaching the pyramid, touching each boulder the same height as human beings, a kind of shock permeates the whole body like electric current, and can feel its greatness deeply. The feeling of being in this situation is so wonderful that people can't forget it! ____________

    The first stop is the pyramid in Giza, Cairo. The tour guide said that the pyramids were the tombs built by the ancient Egyptian king for himself. There were 96 pyramids found in Egypt, and the largest were three pyramids in Giza, a suburb of Cairo. The Great Pyramid is the tomb of the second King of the Fourth Dynasty, Hufu. It was built in 2690 B.C. at a height of 146.5 meters. It is 136.5 meters tall because of its weathering. Its base is 230 meters long, its triangular slope is 51 degrees, and its floor area is 529,000 square meters. Its body is made of 2.3 million stones, and the average weight of each stone is 2.5 tons. Legend has it that it took 100,000 people 20 years to build it. The second pyramid is the tomb of King Harvard, the son of Hufu. It was built in 2650 B.C., 3 meters lower than the former, but its architectural form is more perfect and spectacular. In front of the pyramid, there are temples and other ancillary buildings and the famous Sphinx figure. The third pyramid belongs to King Menkaura, Hufu's grandson. It was built around 2600 BC. Because it was during the decline of the Fourth Dynasty, the pyramid buildings began to decline, so the height of the Menkaura pyramid suddenly dropped to 66 meters, the internal structure was chaotic. On the way, tour guides also told us a lot about the mysteries of the Houf Pyramid: how do these boulders from Aswan in the South transport? How did they rise to such heights? Without any glue, how did the stones close together? How did the huge base get horizontal? At the same time, he gave some mysterious data about the Hoover Pyramid: 1.1 billion times the height of the Pyramid is exactly equal to the distance between the Earth and the sun; 2.2 times the height of the Pyramid by 2 times the base area is exactly equal to the circumference (3.14159); 3. The meridian line across the pyramid divides the earth's land and ocean equally; 4. The center of gravity of the pyramid is the center of gravity of the continents. Of course, the tour guide also mentioned that some people thought the pyramid was a masterpiece of aliens, but he told us absolutely that it was impossible. At this moment, a sense of national pride arises spontaneously. In this way, with wonder and longing, we embarked on the sacred journey of the Egyptian pyramid experience. After security checks, we enter the scenic spot. The tour guide guides us to the high places to enjoy the panoramic view of the pyramid. In the sunshine, against the buildings of the distant city of Cairo, on the sandy land, three huge pyramids stand tall in the history of more than 4600 years. We can't help but be shocked by the magnificent scenery in front of us, one of the ten wonders of the world. Everyone took pictures from different perspectives, and tourists from all over the world continuously expressed their admiration of different sentiments. The tour guide then led us to the second largest pyramid and the mausoleum of King Harvard at zero distance. Absolutely a small number of mainland Chinese tourists have bravely climbed the steps of the pyramid to take pictures with ancient buildings. Local children lead camels to invite tourists to take pictures while many children are selling souvenirs. These scenic spots seem to be very similar to foreign tourists in third world countries.
