Jebel Abbas Basha

Trek 4

Approachable on foot from the town of St. Katherine, Jebel Abbas Basha is located in the centre of the high mountains with stunning views all around, to the mountain ranges, the lowlands and to the town of St. Katherine with Mt. Sinai (Jebel Musa). The unfinished palace of Abbas Pasha is on top, its massive walls still stand firm. The best time to visit is either early in the morning or before sunset. Next to the black massif of Jebel Abbas Basha stands the massive red granite dome of Jebel Abu Mahashir. Hidden in it is the secluded green basin of Farsh Abu Mahshur. Climbing Jebel Abbas Basha is a moderate trek: steep climbs, but good path. However, reaching Farsh Abu Mahashur involves some scrambling and the path is a bit difficult.

Other names/spellings: Mt., Mount, Jabal, Gebel, Gabal, Djebel, Djabal – Abbas Pasha, Abas Basha, Abbass Basha
