The Valley of the Kings is stark. No plants grow anywhere; it is just tan dirt and rock. The tombs are fantastic. We bought Seti I and Ramses VI, and a general admission ticket for three tombs. I purchased a photography ticket. We entered the Seti Tomb first. Seti was the 13th son of Ramses. We immediately liked the tomb. Detailed carvings and colorful paint covered the walls. The ceiling is painted in bright colors of stars and gods and depictions of creatures. The tomb descended 184 meters. Each room held our attention.. Glass covers most of the carvings in the tomb. The paint is vibrant. The 1000 E£ ($55 USD) is expensive but worth the visit. I loved the winged gods over the doorways and the many boats for the ‘crossing over’. The last room reveled drawings covering the walls in preparation for the carvers and painters. It was unfinished.
