Trek through Ein Avdat National Park, a deep canyon near the World Heritage Site of Avdat, known for its picturesque natural springs. The canyon and its trails veer through a dry river valley in the arid Negev desert, and as evidence shows, were once inhabited by ancient Nabateans. Christian monks also used to live in the area, finding their shelter in caves carved into the stone. Several hiking trails climbing large numbers of steps will take you to scenic viewpoints of the springs, which flow in a series of waterfalls to pools of saltwater below, fringed by poplars and saltbush plants.

  • Perhaps one of the most beautiful oasis in Israel. It is recommended to visit an Avdat of Tomb of David Ben-Gurion (very close from an Avdat) right at the entrance. You can walk right by the Valley and marvel at the nature. At the end of the trail, it has a mini snack bar (ice, beverages). I was several times alone in this valley. The last time we took an outdoor guide - absolutely brilliant! The added value (Naturkenntnise, wildlife, etc.) has paid off.
