Picturesque short hike with lots of ladders and hand rails to help negotiate the narrow steep canyon walls.

Nice walk with some climbing parts. Might take 2-3 hours in the sun, so take water. No entrance fee :-)

We should have read better before visiting. We entered the hike at the first parking spot, and followed a black trail, which was not for beginners and we had to leave one behind, and we never made it to the canton before sunset. A quick...More

There are parts that require a fit adult. The Park just north of Eilat , Timna, is a better alternative as you can drive your car to approx 7 locations that you can walk to and view... including the famous King Solomon’s... More
