The Desert Trek

During the Desert Trek, we will cross over the entire desert from where it begins in the West to where it ends in the East. It goes from the Yehuda Mountains, to the lowest point in the world, The Dead Sea. This two-day hike includes a spectacular overnight adventure in the depths of the desert. One of the most unique desert hikes in Israel, The Desert Trek gives you a real sense of accomplishment! The Dead Sea which you can see from a distance when we start the hike becomes closer until eventually you can literally touch the water! During the trek, we will hike through a very impressive canyon named Nachal Takoa traveling deeper and deeper into the canyon throughout our trek. Eventually we will reach the middle of the desert, surrounded by miles of mountains and empty space. Just imagine gazing upon complete nothingness. No civilization in sight. Complete silence. A unique experience to say the least. As we cross through the desert, we will likely meet the local Bedouins, a very friendly bunch, known for their hospitality. In addition to the locals, we will likely spot some donkeys and camels together with the wildlife found in desert. When you hike The Desert Trek, two days alone with no civilization around, surrounded by the clear starry sky at night and the bright sun and glowing desert by day, not only will this adventure be the highlight of your time in Israel but will remain in your heart and mind for years to come…
