Great stop. Easy trail up to series of waterfalls coming down the cliffs as spring fed stream makes its way to dead sea. Crazy how much “life” concentrated around this small source of water. Tons of Ibex (super cool to see them climbing in trees),...More

We had an amazing time hiking the short and easy trail to Nahal David. We stopped several times on the way, taking pictures and enjoying the little waterfalls leading all the way up. Looking forward to go here again.

We enjoyed our time in Ein Gedi so much. The best advice is to go early as the heat is so intense that it is difficult to hike easily. We saw the lower pools and these had plenty of people around. Then we hiked up...More

Well we just hiked to the small waterfall which would have been a breeze except for the fact that it was like forty degrees Centigrade under a blazing sun with little shade. Lots of tourists, and some interesting vegetation on the way like the thorn...More
