Friday, June 24th: Join Hiking the Holyland and expert hiking guide Ben Zaltzman on an adventure in the beautiful Jerusalem Mountains. This 8 kilometer trail will take you on a unique journey through diverse Jerusalem Mountain terrain. The trail begins in a woodland near Nes Harim. Together, we’ll travel past vineyards and a freshwater spring to an ancient Crusader Fortress. Much of our hike will take us through a shady (dry) riverbed, Nahal HaMeara, under a thick canopy of trees. After a stop at a natural rock slide, we’ll continue on to the Twins Cave where we’ll scout out a freshwater spring and see hundreds of bats nesting in the darkness.

On our journey, we’ll stop for a break with hot tea made from freshly picked herbs on the trail.

Bring a flashlight, hiking boots, and lots of energy. This 5 hour adventure is going to be awesome.

Space is limited, so register early. Due to the length of the trail and the type of terrain, this hike is not for first time hikers. The smooth rocks of the (dry) riverbed can be slippery in some places. Hiking poles are recommended for seniors.

Transportation from Jerusalem available for 80 NIS per person, round trip. Contact us for special pricing for couples. We reserve the right to cancel at any time for a full refund.
