On this first day we will be meeting at the village council of Rummana, you will have a small welcoming ceremony by the local families after that a small debriefing about the program will be arranged by the guide.

Rummana literally means pomegranates, and is approximately 17 km northwest of Jenin in the northern West Bank. This hike is one of the most amazingly challenging and extremely superb hikes in Palestine. You start walking through the ancient village on a hill slope and you come across traces of ancient remains, including cisterns and caves carved into rock. After that, you come across a village called Ta’ennek in the northwest of Jenin. There you will be welcomed and hosted by their village consulate and some local people. Ta’ennek is a very calm and quiet village that has a very simple way of living. 

We continue walking towards Burqin, a small agricultural village. Walkers will have the chance to purchase fresh fruit, olive oil and other organic products locally produced.   Burqin hosts the Church of St. George, said to be one of the oldest in the world.
