Had very little time in Jericho and the tour bus made a break close to the Cable car. It's a shame we didn't have time to visit the monastery on top! But just climbimg to the top of the Temptation mountain was amazing!

We took the cable car up to the old city of Jericho also known as temptation mountain. They have a restaurant on the mountain with a great view. You also have the option to hike up to the mountain or back down.

This was beautiful to see and explore. However you must be willing to walk and hike to the top. It’s worth the effort.

You should be able to park on the street right in front of the entrance to the cable car service. It was not too crowded when we were there. Jericho is a smaller city. It is not congested.
