The Coloured Canyon is one of the most visited sites in the Sinai, but most people get there by 4x4s via Nuveiba and Wadi Watir. It can also be reached from the coast at Ras Shaitan on foot, visiting other places of interest along the way, including Wishwashi Canyon. If you get to the Coloured Canyon in the afternoon, the tourist groups are likely to be gone and you can have the site for yourself, or you could camp in the desert before the canyon and visit the site early in the morning. From the Coloured Canyon you can either return another way or by a vehicle (best to organise it in advance), or continue on to other attractions further along. It is an easy-moderate trek with only one bigger climb at Naqb el Kohla.
