Pinsteps. Campsite in the Judean Desert near Nabi Musa

At the southernmost point of a paved road in the Hyrcania Valley, you can stop and set up an overnight camp. Admittedly, it is possible only when it comes to 4X4 vehicles and a large group of travelers whose safety is assured both in terms of the number of people and their experience and weapons and in terms of security coordination with military officials of the nearby base. The trough of Kidron creek crosses in front of us. Its water descends from Jerusalem. From here, you can descend to the Dead Sea seashore to the Cliffs reserve or ascend to Hyrcania Fortress and the Holy Lavra of Saint Sabbas. It is appropriate to spend half a day on each of the tracks in rugged 4X4 SUVs. Please note that there is no cellular network coverage, and you must be equipped with the detailed topography map.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

The Monasteries of the Judean Desert

A beautiful day trip in the Judean Desert starts in the monastery of Euthymius the Great. It leads us to the water source of Ein Mabuah in the Prat creek, where a spectacular overlook to Wadi Qelt is open. Afterward, it takes us to the Good Samaritan museum with the magnificent mosaic collection, paves the steps to the St. Georgius Monastery in Faran creek, and ends in Nabi Musa - place where Moses was buried by Muslims tradition.
