There are plenty of resting places along route, with an area at Elias Garden for teas and coffee, just before the 720 steps of repentance to the summit. Camels can be hired to take you most of the way up the mountain, although you will need to dismount when you reach the steps. This is a beautiful climb, which offers a taste of the serenity and magnificence of southern Sinai's high mountain region. (B)
