Lake Qaroun is Egypt’s largest salt lake. Despite having shrunk over the past few thousand years, it’s about 215 square kilometers.

The lake was historically a freshwater lake, but since it receives drainage water from the canals in Fayoum, it has turned salty. It is considered an excellent site for water sports such as windsurfing and rowing, fishing and bird watching. For example swans – WAC -elderberry – rare falcons.

Lunch and Qasr Qaroun

• Non-Catholics can enter the Vatican and non-Christians are welcomed at churches around the world. While not all the holy mosques of Egypt are off-limits to non-Muslims. All the historical mosques are open for the visit of Muslims/non-Muslims alike like Mohamed Ali Mosque within the Citadel, Amr Ibn El Ass mosque, Ibn Tulun mosque, El Refae mosque, Madrassa of Sultan Hassan and Al Azhar mosque. However, there are protocols which must be followed. Always remember a mosque is a place of prayer and worship for Muslims. It is not a museum.

The answer is between yes and no. in most of the sightseeing it is allowed to take photos and make your trip memorable but there are other places in which you can not take even your camera with you for example Egyptian Museum, Valley of the kings, inside any of the Pyramid, inside the tombs in Sakkara, tombs of noblemen in Luxor, valley of the queens in Luxor.
