LOCATION OF THE TOMB OF KHAEMWASET IN THE VALLEY OF THE QUEENS
At the entrance of the Valley of the Queens are a police checkpoint and an official who checks your entry ticket.
The ticket gives admission to a total of three tombs.
After passing through the entrance, a single main road leads into the valley (5).
When I started my exploration of the valley in 2004, part of this road was paved with asphalt; the remainder of the road was covered with gravel.
The asphalted part of the road and all paths in the valley were covered with a new layer of gravel in 2010, during a thorough renovation of the Valley of the Queens.
As you walk along the road, on your right-hand side you will see the tomb of Queen Nefertari (QV66) (6).
Further along the road, a path to the left will lead you to the entrance of the tomb of Khaemwaset (7) (8) (9).
If you go straight on at this point, you reach the tombs of Queen Titi (QV 52) and Prince Amenherkhepshef (QV 55).
The tomb of Khaemwaset (QV 44) is located in the south-eastern corner of the Valley of the Queens.
To the left of the entrance of tomb QV 44 lies the entrance of the tomb of Prince Sethherkhepshef (QV 43) (10) (11) (12) and (13).
To the left of the entrance of tomb QV 43 lies the entrance of the tomb of Prince Paherwenemef (QV 42) (14) (15) and (16).
Photo (17) gives a beautiful aerial view of the tombs in the south-eastern corner of the Valley of the Queens.
On the left-hand side, you see the path to and the entrance of QV 44, the tomb of Prince Khaemwaset.
On the right-hand side the entrances of the tombs of Prince Sethherkhepshef, Prince Paherwenemef and many others are visible.
The Princes Sethherkhepshef and Paherwenemef were brothers or half-brothers of Prince Khaemwaset.
The entrance of the tomb of Prince Khaemwaset lies at the end of a path that ascends slightly (9) (17).
Photos (18) (19) (20) (21) (22) (23) and (24) show the approach to the entrance of the tomb.
Standing at the entrance of the tomb of Prince Khaemwaset, you have a beautiful view inside the tomb (25).
The vestibule, the entrances of both lateral annexes, the burial chamber and the rear annex are clearly visible.
