(91) NOVA l PBS - a 360˚ view fit for a pharaoh.

Sorry, to see the 360-degree view you'll have to go to the facebook page.


It's a 360˚ view fit for a pharaoh.

From this 45-story-tall perch atop Khufu's Pyramid, you can see Khafre's Pyramid just to the left of the setting sun. Farther to the left is the Sphinx and Khufu's three Queens' Pyramids. The bustling city of Cairo lies beyond, its 10 million inhabitants living and working in the shadows of some of ancient history's most iconic ruins.

Take in this rare vista—climbing to the top is prohibited, but we managed to get permission to scale the ancient wonder to share it with you.
