One simple question. Is it possible today to visit Dahshur and to enter Bent and Red Pyramid of Sneferu?

I last visited Dahshur in 2015 and I was allowed entrance to the Red Pyramid. Did not try the Bent Pyramid.

The Bent Pyramid is not open to the public. The entry into the Red Pyramid is possible (and physically demanding). It costs 40 LE (area Dashur and Pyramid, October 2016) plus a fee for a car.

But you should go to the Bent Pyramid also, to see it from outside (it is around 2,5 km from the Red). And also, not to forget, the remains of a chappel with two stela and an offering stone / altar in form of a "hetep - hieroglyph", on the northern side of the Pyramid :



Greetings, Lutz.
