The highest sand mountain in Egypt is Mount Catherine at 8,625 feet (2,629 meters), and there are many other peaks in the same area over 2000 meters. Mount Catherine can be reached via Wadi el Arbain or Wadi Shag, either way a full day. Usually the trek makes a circle, with sleeping at the top. There is a small orthodox chapel at the top. The monastery constructed a small stone hut where trekkers and pilgrims can stay for overnight in the harshly cold weather. From the peak there are spectacular views over Mt. Sinai, and on a clear day you can see as far as Sharm el Sheikh and the Red Sea.
