The great structure, also known as the Pyramid of Kheops, is 138m high, weighs about 6 million tons, is composed of 2.3 million blocks of limestone, located in the Giza plateau of Egypt.

For a long time, archaeologists have always sought to discover the secrets of the enchanting corridors inside the pyramid, including a corridor completely hidden from the view of experts because it is located close to the cellar below the ground.

Access to the area was difficult, as the underground corridor was gouged deep into the rock below, until a team of experts discovered its existence in 2017.

Recently, a person named Ben van Kerkwyk, owner of the documentary channel "UnchartedX" on the YouTube platform, said that he was allowed to enter the pyramid and film for 2 hours here, according to Sputnik News Agency on December 30.

“We entered the pyramid through a passageway opened in modern times.  The interesting thing about this passage is that somehow it appears at the intersection of the up and down corridor, which is the place the ancients wanted to hide” according to filmmaker Kerkwyk.

There are a total of 3 giant granite blocks blocking the passageway, as well as an underground rock placed in a position to hidden the mysterious corridor.

While the crew headed for the Grand Gallery, the large room next to the pharaoh's tomb, the cameraman decided to take advantage of the opportunity and directed the camera towards the room below the ground.

“From here, the hallway extends down 87 meters to the underground room.  It is straight and long, really be a marvel of the construction industry", Mr. Kerkwyk praised the ability of the ancients.

The ScanPyramids project, a partnership between the Heritage Initiative in Egypt, Cairo University and the Egyptian government, continues to use cosmic ray measuring equipment to search for hidden corridors.  Another hidden inside the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Until now, although some of their locations were known, researchers have not yet clearly understood the significance of the architecture and the arrangement of the pyramid's rooms and corridors at the discretion of the ancients.
