Day 1: Adh-Dahriya to Beit Mirsim

The final stage of Masar Ibrahim will take you on an interesting hike between Adh-Dhahriya and Beit Mirsim, both located southwest of Hebron. On the way, you will encounter the ruins of a Byzantine church. The compound served as the main religious center for the neighboring locations and includes parts of mosaic floors and the remains of a wine press and an impressive grain mill. Later the trail leads to the suburb area of Adh-Dhahriya, where small shops can be found – a great place to refill supplies of cold water for the rest of the day. The trek also passes next to an amusement park and garden where hikers can take a break and rest in a shady spot. The final part of the trail leads through the picturesque Wadi Nufakh, a valley that becomes a river during the rainy season. Beit Mirsim is the final location on Masar Ibrahim al-Khalil. After finishing the hike, you will be transferred to the Lamar Guesthouse located in a beautifully restored and renovated 300 year old building in the Old City of Hebron.
