What To Visit Along the Nile Rive

By Pablo Alcauter

The Aswan Dam

If you are visiting the nile river one suggestion is the Aswan dam. It was built between the 1960's to the 1970's and is located in Aswan Egypt. The landforms or geographical features in the dam is the nile river and east african traded basin. The dam was built for the for electricity and so the water would not flood into land it also had a good because it doesn't pollute the air. But it has harmed the the fish to leave so there are not a lot of fish there.
