Sinai Trail

For the first time in over 100 years, the tribes are collaborating again on a travelling route.

For the first time in over 100 years, the tribes that make up the historic alliance of tribes in South Sinai – called the Towarah – are collaborating again on a travelling route. Travelling is a big part of Bedouin history; and today, the Sinai Trail is more than just a hiking route; it has become a symbol of hope and union for the tribes of the region. The agreement to work together on the Sinai Trail was made in early 2018 in a historic meeting near St Katherine, that was attended by eight tribes. This was an event full of hope and togetherness and all the tribes took an oath to work together long into the future; to resurrect their old guiding industry together and to do something that would give jobs and opportunities to all tribes. This is a big milestone and we’re looking forward to seeing the Sinai Trail be something for all tribes and communities of the region.
