Lake Nasser Every Tuesday
   Day 01
The lake was created as a result of the construction of the Aswan High Dam across the waters of the Nile between 1958 and 1970 The lake is some 550 km long and 35 km across at its widest point, which is near the Tropic of Cancer.

It covers a total surface area of 5,250 km² and has a storage capacity of some 157 km³ of water.

Lake Nasser is situated in the middle of one of the largest and driest deserts on our planet; its life-giving water contrasting dramatically with the stark desert environment creating an atmosphere of tranquillity, vastness and adventure.
