About River Nile

The Nile River is a river that flows through the eastern and northern parts of Africa. It is injected into the Mediterranean Sea from south to north. It is the mother river of Egypt. The sailboat on the Nile is a beautiful view of the Nile. It rides on a sailboat and blows the wind of the Nile. It is very pleasant. Visitors usually choose to visit the Nile River at night, not only to enjoy the night view of Cairo, but also to watch a wonderful belly dance or Sufi dance performance.

    Riding along the Nile River from Luxor to Aswan, along the way are stretches of farmland and trees, green crops and lush tropical plants, let us see the Nile River has been motherly to Egyptians since ancient times. Ninety-five percent of Egypt's territory is uninhabitable desert and semi-desert, so the vast majority of Egypt's total population is concentrated in the Nile Valley and the Nile Delta. The Nile gave birth to ancient Egyptian civilization. As Herodotus, the great Greek historian, said, "Egypt is a gift from the Nile". The Nile River is a magical river. It consists of the Blue Nile River from Lake Tana in Ethiopia and the White Nile River from Lake Victoria in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. The two rivers flow northward and converge into Egypt after the meeting of the Sudanese capital Kashmu, and continue to flow into the Mediterranean Sea. As the longest river in the world, the Nile River is the mother river of nine countries, but the dawn of civilization does not appear in the upper reaches of the Nile River, where grasslands and waterfalls are everywhere, but in the deserts of Egypt. Half of the Nile River flows through the vast desert without tributaries or rainwater, but instead of drying up, it creates the most fertile land in the world and sprints into the sea with surging momentum. It is a miracle of nature. The flooding of rivers is undoubtedly an unforgettable disaster for China, which has suffered from the flooding of rivers for a long time. As soon as the founding of the Republic was still unstable, the country's top leaders made a pledge to cure the great rivers. For Egypt, flooding is a blessing. Every year, the flooding on time brings endless fertile water and soil on both sides of the Nile River, and good fields turn into life, harvest and hope. Ancient Egyptians had long mastered the laws of river flooding, which could be controlled and well utilized. In the 1960s, the famous Aswan Dam was built in Aswan, and the water storage south of the dam rose to become the largest artificial lake in the world, Lake Nasser. The construction of the dam has increased a lot of cultivated land and solved a lot of power supply. But on the other hand, the Nile River is no longer flooding as before, a large number of good fields in the lower reaches are saline-alkaline and barren, many ancient buildings are flooded, and new problems are constantly interrogating modern people. Like the endless debate over the pros and cons of China's Three Gorges Dam, decades have passed since the Aswan Dam was built, and similar arguments remain unanswered. Today, standing on the Aswan Dam, looking around the magnificence of the Dam and the beauty of Lake Nasser, I think that the world is always in a dilemma. While transforming nature brings benefits, I have to swallow the bitter consequences. The process of human development has been experiencing such dilemmas and consequences. If we look at the growth process of individuals and families in a small way, in fact, how can it not be so?

    The Nile River is the world's longest river. It originates from the Kaguela River in the Great Lakes region and flows from south to north through northeastern Africa, eventually into the Mediterranean Sea. The White Nile and the Blue Nile are the two main tributaries of the Nile. After they converged in Khartoum, Sudan, they began to be called the Nile. From the source of the source of the White River, the Nile River is 6671 km long, flows through Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Congo (Jin), Sultan, Ethiopia and Egypt, with an area of 2 million 875 thousand sq km, with an annual average flow of 2300 cubic meters per second and annual runoff of about 72 billion 500 million cubic meters. Nimulay from the source to Sudan is the upper reaches of the Nile River. It is 1716 kilometers long. It has abundant water. It is regulated by lakes. The seasonal variation of water volume is small. There are many rapids and waterfalls and abundant water resources. From Nimulay to Khartoum, the middle reaches of the Nile River is 1930 kilometers long, also known as the White Nile River. Near Khartoum, the Blue Nile River flows in from the southeast, causing a huge increase in water. The Qingniro River originates from Lake Tana in the northwest of the Ethiopian Plateau at an altitude of 1830 meters. After the river runs out from the end of Hunan Province, the valley is deep and the current is turbulent, which is the main source of the main flow of the Nile River. However, the Qingnile River is mainly supplied by snow melting in alpine areas, and its discharge seasonally varies greatly, which will cause seasonal flooding in the downstream areas every year. Below Khartoum lies the lower reaches of the Nile River, 3025 km long, flowing through the arid tropical desert areas. The Aswan High Dam was built at the first waterfall, forming a huge artificial lake in Nasser. In the estuary below Cairo, the river branches into the Mediterranean, forming an estuary delta with an area of about 24,000 square kilometers. The valleys and deltas in the lower reaches of the Nile River are the birthplaces of ancient Egyptian civilization. At present, the Nile River Basin is also one of the most densely populated and economically developed regions in Africa.

    Night tour of the Nile River, by day through the old city road flying, night to see the Nile River on both sides of the top hotel rich area, completely two worlds. There is a big gap between the rich and the poor. Religious beliefs tend to smoothen people's greedy desires. Once the poor drag on their beliefs, they believe that the next life can lead a prosperous life in heaven, while the rich prefer to use money to atone for themselves and live a life of comfort. Give you everything and how, in the end, still depend on their own efforts.

    Egypt's deserts and semi-deserts account for 95% of the country. The Nile River, the world's longest river, runs from south to north. Egypt is 1 350 kilometers long. It forms a narrow valley with a width of about 3-16 kilometers on both sides. It also forms a delta of 24,000 square kilometers north of Cairo, the capital. Under the influence of the Nile River, the oasis belt with an area of 16,000 square kilometers has been formed on both sides of the valley. So the Nile River is a very important mother river for Egypt, and it also has a unique beautiful scenery. Our first stop in Egypt was Aswan, where we took a sailboat ride to enjoy the scenery of the Nile River. There are also police patrol boats shuttling around the river, and the police greet us friendly from time to time.

    The Nile, the mother river of Egypt, is a place where visitors to Egypt must visit. Night trips to the Nile River are the most popular items here. You can see the night scenery of Egypt and enjoy belly dancing. You can kill two birds with one stone. There are only a lot of prices for ships, luxury, meals, and frugality. Local children will paddle boats to find what you want to eat or give money. We will give it to them, and other tourists will give it to them.

    Egypt has a territory of one million square kilometers, of which 96% is the Sahara Desert. All people live along the Nile River, which is Egypt's mother river. From Aswan, Luxor, Alexander to Cairo, we walked along the Nile River. The Nile River is very clear. It is very beautiful under the blue sky and white clouds. If you come to Egypt, you must have a tour of the Nile River, sailing boats and night trips are very worthwhile.
