En 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 En 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.

  • Definitely worth the walk. Is an oasis, including historical context (David fled from Saul). In the mood can go on the route increased as well, but if you spend all day. We were in short, spend some 2 hours.

  • A pleasant walk along the Gorge along the warm waterfalls, you can swim in them. Ibex and the hyrax come close and posing for photos. Better come in the morning and not to rush.

  • Simply just beautiful! The path through the area is left partly very nature and it goes beyond "Hill and Dale". The water is clear and offers a welcome refreshment on the usually warm days. Simply a must if you are ever in the area! We would come back any time.
