En Gedi Nature Reserve, Dead Sea Region

Unwind at David Falls and admire an ancient mosaic of the synagogue at En Gedi Nature Reserve, a tranquil nature resort featuring two year-round streams. Covering 1,400 hectares (3,459 acres), the area's convenient facilities and diverse plant and animal life make it one of the most popular nature sites in Israel. Take a dip in a pond of a limestone cavity, climb cliffs overlooking the Dead Sea, and explore Dodim Cave with a window on the lake. Acacias and palm trees provide necessary shade, and you might encounter Nubian ibexes at close quarters. Bear in mind, all the while, that you are at an elevation of 423-200 m (1,388-656 ft) below sea level. Plan a Dead Sea Region trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • I liked the En Gedi Nature Park. Since I stayed in the highly recommended hostel next door, I could be there very early and enjoy the hike in peace. Partly quite steep and slippery paths. Good shoes, hat and water are a must. But there are great views, many ibex and water to cool down again and again.

  • Ideal on a hot day. Play wonderfully in all waterfalls. Climbing and clunting so not suitable if you are in a bad leg.
