Hiking there was not easy, it was around 14km walking in rocks and water, climbing hills, with a weather that started cold and cloudy, even raining lightly, and ended with a sun in blue sky, but it totally worth it! Be sure that you bring comfortable clothes, fruits, sandwiches or cereal bars to eat during the walk and your camera.... More

What an amazing view of the wilderness! However do be careful of the bedouins who are nomads. They will try to sell you different accessories ranging from scarf, belts and bangles. The children could be quite pushy as tourists are their only source of income. This place is where Jesus describe the parable of the good Samaritan. It also gives... More

Wadi Quelt is a great place for hiking. If you are foreigner and love arabic culture, then a great start point is Jericho, AubergInn highly recommended. I entered Jericho with rental car without any problem - currently (spring 2017) about 50% of cars in Jericho have Israel number plate. AubergInn has a closed parking lot, you feel absolutely sure there.... More

The 2-day hike to St. George Monastery with a night at the camp was the highlight of our trip. If you are ready to jump, climb and crouch, be sure to bring sunscreen and a good amount of water. You might also want to bring a swimsuit and flip-flops. The sandals will be of help when you need to cross... More
