Nahal Gov and Scorpion’s Ascent: Canyon Playground!

Autumn is here, and we are back doing what we love: hiking!

This hike will take us to the Hatzera ridge, where we will descend through a ancient ascent named the scorpions ascent, a ingenious feat of engineering covering 450m of vertical descent in a series of steps, stairs and switchbacks.

 

After descending to the valley of Zin and admiring the watchtowers and small forts we will see the narrows of Nahal Gov ahead of us

 

From there we will climb the canyon, overcoming obstacles with ladders and ropes

This canyon features a lot of climbing fun.

 

After ending the narrows, we will climb the big dry waterfall of the stream, using ladders along the way

 

The end of the hike will give us panoramic views of the sunset over the Zin valley.
