WELCOME TO MORGENLAND VILLAGE
The town of St. Catherine is in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt at an elevation of about 1600 meters from sea level, at the foot of the Sinai High Mountains. Many visitors come to visit St. Catherine's Monastery, the oldest continuously inhabited monastery in the World built on the site where Moses (Prophet Musa) talked to God in the miracle of the Burning Bush, and to climb Mt. Sinai (the Biblical Mt. Horeb, known locally as Jebel Musa) where Moses received the Ten Commandments.
Most tourists, up to a 1000 each night, arrive on organized tours from the resort towns of Sharm el Sheikh and Dahab in the evening, climb the mountain at dawn, visit the Monastery in the morning and leave right afterwards. They don't know what they are missing out on: the area has much more to offer than the otherwise indeed spectacular sunrise .
