This is the 2nd pyramid or the Pyramid of Khafre where we entered a mortuary which was not easy because we had to stoop down while walking for 45 meters down and up again and there was a short but level floor where we can stretch our backs and continue to stooping down while walking again till we reach the tomb. On our way up the guy in front of me slipped and I thought for a while that I had to catch him so we won't fall down 'cause there were more than twenty people behind me. Wish I can show you something about the tomb but it was picture-taking was prohibited. People who are asthmatic and claustrophobic are advised not to go inside.

We were just at the entrance, JJ! Very far from this one but the previous one most probably around 15 meters. Thanks for the comment!

It's too bad you weren't allowed to shoot a pic or two....

Yes, but I saw a picture in a book I bought there. I'll try to find a link if I can just you'll see how difficult it was to just see a tomb with no mummy inside! LOL

Oh my… clausterphobic and asthmatic? … how about people with sore backs or sprained ankles?… I fall into that category. :)

Definitely not advisable to go down, too! It was a very narrow passage and stooping will affect your back all the more! Lots of the older people didn't try to go down anymore but I did even if I am not that healthy. :)
