Yes, it snows in Egypt! But only in the high mountain region around St. Katherine’s in south Sinai, which was blessed with several light snowfalls last week. Although the snow cover did not stay around long in the village, the surrounding mountaintops, include Mt. Sinai (Jebel Musa), were covered in patches of snow and ice. Above are a few photos taken on a hike through Wadi Arbaeen to the basins on Mount (Jebel) Safsafa. For more stunning images of the snow in St. Katherine’s, visit Discover Sinai’s Facebook page. You will be amazed!
