The Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid are close to an off-limits military zone but should be visited to give you a clear idea of the first attempts of pyramid construction. I climbed up to the heart of the Dahshur pyramid and on a clear day you can clearly spot several pyramid ruins in the distance (inside the military zone). Together with Saqqara, I feel these deserve a WHS listing
