From USD 70

This stage extends from the village of Arraba which is located in the north of the West Bank, 13 kilometers southwest of Jenin. Arraba has an elevation of 350 meters above sea level and lies near Sahl Arraba; a plain that lies between Mount Carmel and Nablus. The history of Arraba traces back to the ottoman period.

When starting to walk on the land of Arraba, you will pass from the ancient stately palace in the village historic center, and then cross through serene countryside, olive groves and orchards

The stage ends at Sanur’s hillside lookout tower. Sanur, which is approximately 26 kms south of Jenin, is originally a tall tower at the top of a mountain. During the late Ottoman era, Sanur served as a fortified village of the Jarrar clan and played a key role in limiting the power of the Ottoman sultanate.
