On the way to Elba

One of the very few Egyptian travelers who got a permission to access Gebel Elba. The trip was meant to raise awareness of the Nature of Mount Elba and Halayeb Triangle, a place that very few Egyptians visit due to the restrictions since its a disputed land between Egypt and Sudan. The travelers also supported the bedouin families and the only school in the area. A sustainable travel project is when travelers interact with the locals and they support each other in all kinds of ways, it raise awareness and improves the place.
