Daraw, situated south of Kom Ombo, is primarily known for its camel market, Souq al-gimmal, where visitors can see thousands of camels in one place brought from Modurman in Sudan, Abu Simbel from the north, and Wadi al-Alagi. Goats, cows, and other livestock are also sold here. Nubian men in tuk-tuks sell Egypt’s spinach, molokheya, and mint. After experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime attraction, there are a few places just outside of Daraw worth a visit. These include the ancient temple of Contra-Ombos, the quarries at Gebel el- hamman, and El-kubaniya, a quaint village with several early Egyption cemeteries.
