Where is the first cataract located?
Regarding this, where is the second cataract located?
In Sudan: The Second Cataract (or Great Cataract) was in Nubia and is now submerged under Lake Nasser.
Similarly, what does cataract mean in ancient Egypt? The cataracts are sections where the river tumbles over rocks and have long kept boats from going up and down the river from Equatorial Africa to Egypt. The cataracts are also significant because these define river segments where granites and other hard rocks come down to the edge of the Nile.
Also question is, where are the cataracts in Egypt?
The cataracts of the Nile are shallow lengths (or white water rapids) of the Nile River, between Aswan and Khartoum, where the surface of the water is broken by many small boulders and stones protruding out of the river bed, as well as many rocky islets.
How did the cataracts help Egypt?
It deposits rich soil every year. How might the Nile's cataracts have both helped and hurt Egypt? Nile's cataracts helped and hurt Egypt by flooding every year and bringing down boulders and trees. It made attacking Egypt very hard.
