Ein Gedi is a real desert oasis and not just an expression. It lies between the dead, and I mean dead, Dead Sea with nothing live anywhere in sight, and the craggy cliffs of the Judean Desert. The Ein Gedi spring gives brilliant color and life right in the middle of this desolate and barren area. It has lush greenery, beautiful waterfalls, and plenty of wildlife especially ibex that enjoy hanging around this refreshing desert oasis.
Take the family for a beautiful hike, enjoy the vistas of the surrounding landscape, dip into its pools, or stand under the waterfalls to cool yourself on a scorching hot summer day! Here about its history as hideout for Dovid and Bar Kochba, as a rich Arfarsimon producing town and its ancient curse!
