Start your journey on Masar Ibrahim in the midst of nature. Palestine’s central position at the crossroads between Africa, Asia and Europe makes it a pathway for the biannual migration of over half a billion birds - a true birdwatcher's paradise. On this hike, a demanding yet exciting path will take hikers through Al-’Auja Valley, home to an impressive array of plant and animal life - look carefully to spot a Mediterranean turtle. In Al-’Auja we will meet the Bedouin communities and learn about their habits and traditions. Later, visit Jericho - the lowest and one of the most ancient cities in the world - and taste the delicious Medjoul dates grown in the area. Walk through serene desert landscapes stretching from the Sea Level Community towards Bethlehem. Along the way we will have the unique chance to spend a night in a cave located in middle of a desert, a place where the stars seem to shine their brightest. Towards the end of the journey we will encounter a breathtaking view of the Mar Saba monastery, clinging to the edge of the Kidron Valley. Behind the valley is Bethlehem, where you will be greeted by local families with open arms and a warm meal.
