Are tourists allowed to enter or touch the pyramids in Egypt?
Question

I am very curious about the pyramids in Egypt as I always see them in photos and in movies. Are the sizes of the pyramids the same and how far are they from each other? Are tourists allowed to enter or touch the pyramids?

The Pyramids of Egypt are one of the most famous ancient structures in the world. They were built over 4,500 years ago during the Old Kingdom period of Ancient Egypt.

The sizes of the pyramids vary, with the Great Pyramid of Giza being the largest and the Pyramid of Menkaure being the smallest. The Great Pyramid of Giza stands at a height of 147 meters (481 feet), making it the tallest among the three pyramids. The Pyramid of Khafre stands at a height of 136 meters (446 feet) and the Pyramid of Menkaure stands at a height of 65 meters (213 feet).

The three main pyramids in Giza, Egypt are located close to each other, with the Great Pyramid of Giza being the largest, followed by the Pyramid of Khafre, and then the Pyramid of Menkaure. The distance between the Great Pyramid and the Pyramid of Khafre is around 136 meters (446 feet), while the distance between the Pyramid of Khafre and the Pyramid of Menkaure is around 103 meters (338 feet).

Tourists are allowed to enter the Great Pyramid of Giza, but access to the other two pyramids is limited. Visitors are not allowed to touch the pyramids due to the risk of damage and erosion. However, tourists can explore the surrounding areas and take photos near the pyramids.
