Such a nice drive here from Eilat. The scenery is beautiful. Try to come here no later than 10 a.m before all the buses come over as the amount of people will destroy your experience. Easy walk, really beautiful scenery. Highly recommend.

Scenic park for walking; easy path through a canyon sculpted by a river many years ago; easy to reach from Eilat; trails are marked; trails commence from the parking lot; parking lot is reached from highway 12 along a gravel road.

Perfect experience of the mountains in Eilat! We enjoyed climbing down the ladders in the sandstone gorge with all its beautiful colours and formations.

10 min by car from Eilat and you're in heaven :) The most breathtaking part of the route is quite short but still must see. I love it.

This hike was beautiful and not as difficult than we thought. Some ladders but not too scary. Nice photo opportunities. We recommend that you park your car close to the canyon and not immediately off the main road unless you want a long extra hike...More

If you can climb some stairs up and down, then you would probably be ok.
