Egypt nile valley







The Nile Valley can be considered a gift offered to Egypt because its rich soil and its water assured the existence and the development of the Egyptian civilization. The Nile river is the world's longest river, flowing on a distance of 6,650 km, from the north of the Burundi`s sources of stream till the Mediterranean Sea. The Nile valley has a beautiful shape that looks like a flower of lotus, which in the ancient Egypt symbolized the life's regeneration. The stem is represented by the Nile valley, the bud is represented by the region of Fayyum and the flower - by the delta spreading in a triangle shape. The Nile was the unique source of water for the Egypt's crops which were very rich. To control the flood, the ancient Egyptians used the irrigation canals. Due to the water from Nile numerous animals were raised and the numerous flowers brought bees from who the Egyptians obtained the honey. Today, the Nile Valley is not very much changed from antiquity's times: like a green painting surrounded by sand, offering maybe a desolation picture. The valley extends on a 750 miles area from Aswan (a town in Egypt) to the Mediterranean Sea. The most important change consists in the continuing increment of the Egypt's population, from 11 million in 1907 to more than 40 million in present. Another important change is the annual flood disappearance, due to the construction of the Aswan High dam built in 1965. If you plan to make a trip in Egypt and to enjoy the beautiful view offered by the Nile Valley, you also can choose to have a trip on Nile with a felucca – a little open sailboat that transports people over the Nile River.
