How Deep?

diagram of descending passageThe descending passageway that leads to the Unfinished Chamber is long, narrow, steep and, without any windows, very dark! When you arrive at the burial chamber, you'll be 20 m (66 ft) beneath the foundation with over 6 million tons of stone piled above you!

The descending passageway is usually closed to visitors, but you can take a virtual tour of the passageway and the unfinished chamber.
