Nevertheless, Dhahriya’s historic core, with its narrow streets and small domed stone houses, is a well-preserved example of an architectural complex that dates to Ottoman times in Palestine.

Cependant, le village ottoman de Rabud est en ruine depuis les années 1970. Pour autant, les ruines sont parmi les exemples d'architecture les mieux préservés dans les montagnes autour d'Hébron. Le nouveau village de Raboud est construit à proximité. Plus tard, une longue partie du sentier traverse le pittoresque Wadi Nar pour atteindre Ad-Dhahriya. Selon la tradition locale, Ad-Dhahriya a été fondée au XIIIe siècle par le souverain mamelouk Al-Malik al-Dhahir Baibars, qui a donné son nom au village. Cependant, les découvertes archéologiques confirment que le site était habité avant cette époque. Une forteresse bien conservée de la période hellénistique ou du début de la période romaine se trouve également dans le village. Néanmoins, le centre historique de Dhahriya, avec ses rues étroites et ses petites maisons en pierre en forme de dôme, est un exemple bien conservé d’un ensemble architectural datant de l’époque ottomane en Palestine. Avant la construction des maisons, probablement aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles, les villageois vivaient dans des grottes qui se trouvent actuellement sous la vieille ville.   Emplacement pour faire tamponner son passeport de randonneur : Adh-Dhahriya Distance à pied: 13.5 km Temps de marche: 5 - 7 heures Difficulté: difficile  Recommandations: Chaussures de randonnée légères Bâtons de marche Au moins 4 à 5 litres d'eau et des collations pour la randonnée Crème solaire et chapeau Votre caméra Inclus: Un guide de randonnée local expérimenté Déjeuner en route Non inclus: Les transports jusqu'au point de départ et à partir du point d'arrivée

LUNDI 25 NOVEMBRE 2019 – D’ADH-DHAHRIYA A BEIT MIRSIM – RANDONNEE DE MASAR IBRAHIM

La dernière étape de Masar Ibrahim emmène les randonneurs dans une randonnée de 19 km entre Adh-Dhahriya, située à 23 km au sud-ouest d'Hébron, et Beit Mirsim, située à 30 km au sud-ouest d'Hébron. Six kilomètres plus loin, on peut voir les ruines d'une église byzantine située à environ 300 mètres à l'est du village d'Anab al-Kabir (à 22 kilomètres au sud-ouest d'Hébron). Le complexe servit de centre religieux principal pour les localités voisines et comprend des parties de sols en mosaïque, les restes d’un pressoir à vin et un impressionnant moulin à grains. Le circuit traverse également des zones peuplées et se trouve juste à côté de l'école primaire d'Anab al-Kabir. Si vous faites la randonnée une journée d’école, il est fort possible que les étudiants qui rentrent de l’école fassent avec vous une partie de la randonnée. Après Anab al-Kabir, le sentier fait demi-tour vers le nord et mène à la banlieue d'Adh-Dhahriya, où se trouvent de petits magasins - un lieu idéal pour faire le plein d'eau froide pour le reste de la journée. Le trek passe également à côté d’un parc d’attractions et d’un jardin où les randonneurs peuvent faire une pause et se reposer dans un endroit ombragé. La dernière partie du sentier traverse le pittoresque Wadi Nufakh, une vallée qui devient une rivière pendant la saison des pluies. Les pentes de la vallée sont riches en arbustes variés, notamment le germand felty (Teucrium polium), en arabe jedeh (الجعدة), qui est largement utilisé en médecine populaire pour le traitement des maux d'estomac. Une petite oliveraie, idéale pour se reposer à l'ombre, est située au milieu de la vallée. Avant d'atteindre le village d'Al-Burj, célèbre pour abriter les vestiges d'un château fort et d'une église appartenant à la période des Croisades, le sentier passe juste à côté de la barrière de séparation israélienne. Le mur est également visible plus tard depuis Beit Mirsim, le dernier emplacement sur le sentier Masar Ibrahim al-Khalil. Le village est riche en patrimoine et comprend des sites historiques tels qu'un pressoir à olives byzantin et le sanctuaire du prophète Handal (Maqam al-Nabi Handal). Près du village, se situe Tell Beit Mirsim, un ancien site archéologique datant du XVIIIe siècle av. Le site est maintenant situé de l'autre côté du mur et est inaccessible depuis la Cisjordanie. Emplacement pour faire tamponner son passeport de randonneurs : Conseil du village de Beit Mirsin Distance à pied: 19.8 km Temps de marche: 5 - 7 heures Difficulté: difficile Recommandations: Bottes de marche légères Bâtons de marche Au moins 4 à 5 litres d'eau et des collations pour la randonnée Crème solaire et chapeau Votre caméra   Inclus: Un guide de randonnée local expérimenté Déjeuner en route Non inclus: Les transports jusqu'au point de départ et à partir du point d'arrivée
