Natural Wonders: Hiking Above the Dead Sea



Meeting Time:06:15

Completion Time: 20:00


We are heading down to the Dead Sea Transform for a beautiful, Saturday hike that will take us above one of the world’s most fascinating natural wonders.

The day will start by climbing one of the Judean Desert’s most challenging ascents – Ma’ale Mazin. From there we will hike upon the fault cliffs of the Dead Sea Transform.

At the top, we will be surrounded by beautiful panoramic views of the Great Rift Valley and Dead Sea with the Moab Mountains of Jordan off to the east.

Along the way, we will learn about the area’s geological, biblical and modern history and discuss the rapidly changing environment and the changes taking place in one of the country’s most isolated areas.
