Panoramic view of the Giza plateau, Egypt

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.
