Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, Dead Sea Region
(4.6/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Unwind at David Falls and admire an ancient mosaic of the synagogue at Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, a tranquil nature resort featuring two year-round streams. Covering 1,400 hectares (3,459 acres), the area's convenient facilities and diverse plant and animal life make it one of the most popular nature sites in Israel. Take a dip in a pond of a limestone cavity, climb cliffs overlooking the Dead Sea, and explore Dodim Cave with a window on the lake. Acacias and palm trees provide necessary shade, and you might encounter Nubian ibexes at close quarters. Bear in mind, all the while, that you are at an elevation of 423-200 m (1,388-656 ft) below sea level. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Ein Gedi Nature Reserve and many more Ein Gedi attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Ein Gedi travel itinerary maker.

  • 1976 and 40 years later in 2016. A pity that the Government has not been possible to preserve some of the original gap. In 1976, it was possible to all residents from the animal world to behold, so also the Jaguar. One need not even be present in total silence. In 2016 I don't have any living being seen, apart from a continuous stream of visitors. The gap is still as charming in its beauty, but do not look for you, but up. The vegetation on the ground carries only traces of man.

  • Climbed from one waterfall to another in the footsteps of Saul in his pursuit of David. Teeming with herds of the Ibex and tree climbing Rock Badger. Not to be missed overlooking the Dead Sea 
  • After driving through the Judean desert, this is a very unique space. The spring waters through here has created a little pocket, its own eco system. It's been a water source and a shelter for humans ...  more »
