Ein Gedi contains the historical and archaeological remains of its first inhabitants, who discovered the magic of the place more than 5,000 years ago it has also served as a landmark in the history of the Jewish people throughout history. David took refuge in Ein Gedi when he was pursued by King Saul, and rebels fled there from Jerusalem. Valuable persimmon oil and rare perfumes were produced there, and temples and synagogues were established here to strengthen the Jewish stronghold in the area.

An oasis in the Dead Sea

Although it is difficult to find life near the Dead Sea, this nature reserve is the exception. It has waterfalls, streams and plenty of animal species. This is due to the perennial fresh water springs that flow from the mountains of the Judean desert. There are plenty of trails to walk, you could spend an entire day easily following the paths of interest.
