Ein Gedi is a kibbutz (communal village) situated next to the Dead Sea and two sweet water streams (Arugot and David). The entire kibbutz is also a botanical garden, so your tour, although marked on a map, is essentially a tour of the kibbutz. The...More

Go directly to the David Waterfall and stand right underneath the pouring water. It is cold and refreshing. Don't mind the crowds or boisterous people. Just go straight up and make your way to the most exciting part of the climb.

Justifiably popular with locals and tourists alike. Walk to the King David waterfall or take a wider circuit to the top of one of the plateaus. Take your swim suits and water.

This extraordinary place features a vast array of trees, plants, and flowers in midst of a desert landscape- the beauty being almost surreal. All of this grows and thrives in midst of a Kibbutz, a working agricultural communal village founded around 65 years ago by...More

Not the same. They are about 4 miles separated. You could walk and there are buses but I have no idea the bus schedule.

Yes David, There is a very nice and not in-expensive hotel in Ein Gedi. You need to call to make reservations, as they do not take volunteers anymore. The number is 972-8-6594222.
