Sudan: Nile Third Cataract

The third cataract of the Nile is located north of Tombos and is the most spectacular off all the Nile cataracts – shallows of the river where the mighty Nile turns to whitewater. The view is stupendous from a high ground of a cliff above the river where ruined Ottoman fort still stands. The panoramas are a total 360 – you. And see the Nile both up and downstream and also several volcanic features and mountains for miles in all directions. The cliff with the fort itself has some columnar basalt features.
