Sinai Peninsula

SinaiApproximately 20 million years ago, what are today Egypt , Sinai, and the Arab Peninsula , were all united in a single block. Then a huge earthquake separated the land, isolating the southern Sinai Peninsula, about 300 miles east of Cairo , and giving rise to two large gulfs. The Gulf of Suez lies to the west and is 315 feet deep, whereas to the east, the Gulf of Aqaba is 5,905 feet deep. The mountains in Sinai range from 2,461 to 85,301 feet above sea level. The most impressive and renown mountains are Mt. Sinai (Moses' Mountain), that reaches 7,400 feet in height, and St. Catherine's Mountain, which stands 8,665 feet high.
