The key feature of this tomb, which was originally built for Ramses V and expanded by Ramses VI during the 20th Dynasty, is its vaulted astronomical ceiling with a double image of the Goddess Nut swallowing the sun.

This was perhaps the most detailed underground tomb in the Valley of the Kings &/or one with the most hieroglyphs/reliefs. If I remember correctly, this was not originally purposed for Ramses VI. Also, it had astrological reliefs on one of the ceilings.

Both Ramses VI and Queen Nefertari's tombs are not to be skipped. Both are absolutely beautiful and worth any extra cost. Life-changing!

It is something no one should miss. Wear light and bright. Have your bottle of water and light snacks with you and be ready to spend 3-4 hours there. Avoid summer because it is very hot and Tuesdays because it is off.

I would suggest to visit Howard Carters house nearby where a magnificent copy of the tomb in all its beauty can be viewed! The Spanish government sponsored this project.

I visited a couple of years ago during the unrest and it was clear that the maintenance of antiquity sites was in trouble. This tomb is one for which you pay extra following the installation of LED lighting and it wasn't working. Here we are...More

Amazing hieroglyphics on the walls, colors still intact. Overwhelming to walk down the ramp into the cool depths and see the paintings and carvings still standing so many years later.
