Coloured Canyon, Nuweiba

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Nuweiba
Both color and shape define the 800 m (2,625 ft) Coloured Canyon. Changing tones of browns, bronze, yellows, and oranges highlight different parts of the canyon, given the way it's mineralized--where the rock walls are sculpted in twisting, swirled patterns. The area is known for mystical histories where travelers came to worship the moon goddess Sin, which is where the nickname "Land of Sin" comes from.
