Hike At Ein Gedi

Hike At Ein Gedi

This hike is very flexible. You can choose from many different trails, from one hour to six hours in length.  During the hike, there are many places to rest, swim and explore as much as you like. The Ein Gedi Nature Reserve is an oasis with a rich variety of vegetation and wildlife and even the remains of an ancient community.

Nachal Arugot and its springs, along with other abundant water sources has attracted both people and animals since the chalcolithic period, about 4500 BCE. Due to the sweet water and the high temperatures of the region, there is vegetation such as oleander, reeds, ferns, and tropical fruits.

You may see wildlife: capra, rock hyrax, river crabs and more. The highlight of the hike is the impressive hidden waterfall. Take a dip and stand under the pounding water for a natural massage! The stream burbles over rocks and shallow pools offer refreshing respite from the heat. If you’re adventurous and have water shoes, you can hike in the streambed, climbing the boulders and wading in pools.
