Wadi El Rayan is a small valley and a unique nature reserve southwest of the Fayoum oasis, about 65 km southwest of Faiyum city and 80 km west of the Nile River.
The reserve is composed of Upper lake and Lower lake which were formed in 1973 as a result of excess agricultural drainage water from the Fayoum region.
Valley of Wadi El Rayan consists of two lakes connected by Egypt’s only waterfall.

The young Egyptians enjoy getting into the water, but elderly women enjoy to look at the children who did water play and enjoyed it.
Wadi El-Rayan is a protected area famous for its waterfalls and is home to many historically significant sites including, Roman and Pharaonic ruins.
