Majrasa – Wet Hike
Imagine a walk through the wet jungle in the Amazon. Spanish is not the mother tongue in the Majrasa wet hike, but the experience is pretty similar. You are in different world lost among the majestic vegetation as you wade through the water. The trail runs through a lagoon created by a number of Golan Heights rivers, and into the Kineret. It is one kilometer long and can take roughly an hour and a half to complete. The water is around a foot deep but depending on the rain season can get much deeper than that. There are points where you go out of the water and walk on the bank alongside the water.
The banks are filled with Aravot and mint leaves that add a nice fragrance to the air. At the end of the trail you will be surrounded by eucalyptus groves. You will pass through lilac and chasteberry. Fish enter the lagoon from the Kineret, butterflies dance through the air, and exotic birds including owls fill the air. The Majrasa is everything you’d expect, and we’ve heard more than once that it was the kids favorite trip during their stay in Israel!
