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

There are many different hikes to sit different levels of expertise. All of the bus loads of tourists make the lower waterfalls less enjoyable. Hike at least to the middle and you'll be rewarded. The views across the dead sea are spectacular and the are...More
