The monuments in the Valley of the Kings can be preserved in the long term only by careful management of the number of visitors, the locations they visit, and the facilities provided for them. The factors to be taken into account include transportation to, from, and within the Valley; parking; waste disposal; signage; electricity, septic, and water lines; diversion of floodwater; size and location of the shopping area; sales of food and drink; construction of a comprehensive visitors center and exhibit space; security; rules for cameras; improved toilets, shelters, and rest areas; and improved protection and lighting in the tomb interiors.
