4-7 March 2019, Masar Ibrahim - Spring Northern part

The Masar Ibrahim al Khalil offers travelers a rare opportunity to go beyond the headlines and the stereotypes, to get away from the ordinary Holy Land tours, and to explore for themselves the remarkable landscape, hospitable people and culture of Palestine, breathtaking landscape and ancient historical sites. The Masar (‘The Path’) provides a rare chance for visitors to be welcomed into ordinary Palestinian homes, to share a homemade traditional meal and listen to stories of traditions and customs, and to learn about the daily lives, concerns, and hopes of the people. Palestine is an extraordinary land. Take that first step to walk the Masar, and it is guaranteed that you will be rewarded with a life-enhancing experience.  The northern trail starts in Nablus and ends in Taybeh, and is based on four days of walking with mini bus transfers to and from the trail.  More information: http://masaribrahim.ps/en/
