Pyramid hunting

As some of you guys probably know I have spent the past 2 weeks travelling in Sudan and Egypt. Two countries that are very famous for their ancient pyramids and pharaos. Egypt of course more than Sudan, but it is surprisingly Sudan that has the most amount of Pyramids in the world.

Of course my trips did not stop with the famous Pyramids of Giza. The countries contain so many interesting pyramids very few have ever heard about. I started hunting.

I had such a great pleasure hunting pyramids that I wanted to know where to hunt next. I was surprised to see that there is no complete list of all pyramids in the world anywhere on the internet. Even Wikipedia does not list them all.

One of the reasons might be that it is hard to distinguish between an actual pyramid and a ancient temple. Another reason is, that many natural rock and mountain formations that looks like pyramids are either included or excluded, and if excluded there might be theories out there saying it is a man made pyramid. Basically there are many conspiracy theories about pyramids everywhere (which I find fascinating)!

Long story short my research gene took over and I started to make a list of my own. I was so surprised to find so many interesting pyramids many of them just recently discovered. I also included modern pyramids.

Basically, my definition of a pyramid is that it vaguely has to resemble the appearance of a pyramid (4 triangular walls leaning on each other). Of course most non Egyptian pyramids do not have an apex and I have accepted this shape as a pyramid as well.

Enjoy the list, it is one of a kind on the internet! Maybe you will be surprised to see your own country have a pyramid!

Basically, this list is for myself feeding into places I want to visit in this world. That is why I have only included sites that actually is interesting for me. This includes all man made pyramids and few natural formations which have some kind of claim or conspiracy theory out there attached to it saying it is a man made pyramid.

Green ones are those I have already visited.
Red ones are those so damaged that it is hard to recognize it as a pyramid anymore. If you go to a red one you have to be very interested in archaeology I think!

Do you think I missed any? Let me know in the comments! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Another informative and very interesting information you have provided for us. I honestly didnโ€™t even know that for example, Sudan had so many Pyramids! I assumed places like Egypt or some South American countries but that would be the extent of my knowledge. I also enjoyed the pictures and videos that you posted on your Instagram account. Inshaโ€™Allah always be traveling to these wonderful places and share them with us! ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿš–๐Ÿ›ถ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ›ณ๐Ÿš€

  3. I was wondering about the greens and reds, then my questions were answered.

    Your genes are dominant ๐Ÿ™‚ the reason why going to places is second to none to you. Researching and hunting for pyramids simply shows that they are not just for archaeologists nor for film directorโ€™s imaginations, e.g. Indiana Jones. They are for anyone who have interests in and have the guts to travel into what is almost โ€œunknownโ€.

    Your article has enumerated many pyramids I have not even heard about. There was a time I thought of turning my back on Instagram. By โ€œstayingโ€ I have discovered and read many things from various individuals, one of them is you.

    Keep your fire for adventure burning.

    Kind regards.
