Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • The way to the big waterfall and back takes about one and a half hours. We would recommend to take bathing suit. On the way to the big waterfall, there are still small waterfalls, where you may be in the water. Beautiful scenery and breathtaking nature! At the exit, there are restrooms and dressing rooms, as well as a kiosk where you can buy something or eat. Tickets cost 28 shekels, which is about 6 euros per person and it is worth. Large free car park.

  • This is the area that David hid out in while running from King Saul. It's very beautiful with waterfalls and crystal clear waters. You can see the caves where David hid out. 
  • The road to the dead sea. We took the car skated themselves. Range of desert. Only oases of date palms. Ein Gedi is the first stop from Jerusalem. Scoop. Ticket includes shower-WC-pereodevalku. Another delivery to the sea tractor, and finding in the territory, though all day. But we do not want. Bring towels. 19 shekels to buy the cheapest. Necessarily need Batts, izrežete salt feet. Best slippers against coral. We bought cheap. Shower rather dirty. In pools of mud we have not ventured. Only reached the sea and purchased. The dead sea is unusual, of course. Fat, hardly is washed off. We were staying in a long time, salt. Do not swim, of course, I'm from the lying position feet dip and could not itself) that surprises-Turks here Super resort would have done. And here is the real scoop. A few chairs, a primitive shower-WC on the beach. Yes and the beach is not. In General, checkmark.
