Trek 19: Jebel Mileihis (1-2 days)

Jebel Mileihis is an impressive mountain towering above wide sandy Wadi Ghazala. From its top you can even see a bit of the sea at Nuweiba. It is a moderate trek despite the tough look – the climb is actually not that difficult. At the foot of the mountain the secluded basin of Moyat Mileihis with its springs is a magical spot. From this area you could carry on to the sea at Nuweiba or at the Abu Galum Protectorate.
