Pinsteps. Nahal Bokek's Coffee Ritual: Savoring Desert Moments
Places to visit in ישראל. Languages: en, ru

Coffee culture in the desert is a cherished ritual, offering a moment of serenity amidst the vast expanse of sand and sky. It's a tradition that involves the simple pleasure of firing up a portable gas burner and brewing coffee in a cezve (Turkish coffee pot) with cardamom. The aroma of the coffee blends with the desert air, creating an experience that is both grounding and invigorating. Sipping this strong brew from tiny cups, filled just halfway in the Bedouin manner, is akin to partaking in a time-honoured communal rite that emphasizes hospitality and companionship.

Bokek Stream adventure Uncover History! Hiking near the Dead Sea on Jan 11, 2024

Your day hike along the Bokek Stream promises to be enriching and exciting. Starting from Tsuk Tamrur, a name that testifies to British oil exploration attempts in the 1930s, you will proceed towards Bokek Fortress near the Dead Sea. Along the way, you'll encounter stunning landscapes and learn many stories, including the region's geological past. This journey offers insights into human activities and natural phenomena, such as the Syrian-African Rift, which led to the formation of the Dead Sea Valley.

As the sun sets behind the mountains in the evening, you'll descend into the Dead Sea Valley. This part of the route is awe-inspiring due to its dramatic elevation drop of about four hundred meters. The view from the observation deck is breathtaking, especially during twilight. This unique blend of history, geology, and incredible natural beauty makes the hike along the Bokek Stream an unforgettable experience.
