En Gedi - an oasis in the middle of the desert. This beautiful national park should be part of every Israel trip. An oasis of peace with beautiful hiking routes and a beautiful flora. The waterfalls offer wonderful photo motives, the small water holes invite you to take a bath and the different lookouts offer a wonderful view of the Dead Sea. An absolute must on every Israel trip!

This area is mostly a nature reserve. It is HOT in the summer, but in February it was rather cool and there were warnings about land slides due to all of the rain. There are many paths and waterfalls if they allow you to walk deeper into the area. It makes for a pleasant afternoon and if you are lucky you can see the Ibex or goats that roam around. This is great for hiking, but you need full mobility to handle this area.

When we went to the Ein Gedi nature Reserve it was a public holiday in Israel and so the research and the waterfalls were very crowded with lots of tourists and families...so it was less than ideal but it is still a very beautiful place. We did the shorter walk which ends up at King David Waterfall. It is a reall pretty walk and not too difficult. If there weather is warm I would definitely recommend taking your swimming costume and a towel with you as the clear water looks very inviting. It was a little cold when we visited. The walk we took doesn’t take very long and so an hour should be enough time to see the main part of the park. If you are lots more energetic than us then you might like to take the longer walk which takes about 4hrs and features lots more climbing up stairs but you will get some amazing views from the top of the mountains. If you are planning on visiting lots of Israeli National Parks then you should purchase one of those Israel National Park Vouchers. You can choose from a 3, 6 or Unlimited package and it is much cheaper than paying for individual entires.

A really nice nature reserve. The "hike" to the small waterfall is easy accessable with younger children. We didn't do any other hike.

This is a great stop on your way down or back to the Dead Sea. It has some wonderful trees and plants. It also has some wonderful waterfalls. It is an oasis in the desert for real. It is the supposed sight of David's flight from King Saul. It is very interesting to hike and see the wildlife and views. Very well maintained.
