The Kidron Valley separates the old city and the mount of olives, the valley is clear to see and very moving when you think of it in its biblical context. A must see. You can stand at the Mount of Olives and see it too

It's amazing to walk in the valley of Judgement spoken about in the Bible. There is a hushed serenity about the place, from which you see on one side, the majestic old city and on the other, the Mount of Olives.

It is great to read about this place in the Bible then walk it in real life. This isn't a 'valley' as much as a little dip before a hill. It is an easy walk though

The Kidron Valley is easily seen if you exit the Old City of Jerusalem through the Zion (Armenian Quarter) or Dung gates (Jewish Quarter near the Wailing Wall) on the Southern side, and it is jaw-dropping to say the least. The Mount of Olives rises...More

Although the Tomb of Absolom is in a desperate state, filled with construction and other garbage, it was nonetheless interesting to take a walk in this ancient cemetery. We absolutely enjoyed getting out of the Old City (Dung gate, near the Western Wall) and taking...More
