South Israel Tour last part; Short Visit to Ein Gadi Reserve

8-days Pinoy solo backpacking in Winter Israel
November 02 to November 10, 2013


En Gedi Nature Reserve is located on the Eastern edge of Judean Desert, on the shore of the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth (approximately 400m below sea level). The reserve contains vast differences in elevation over relatively short distances and as a result, one of its distinguishing features is its sheer cliffs. The reserve covers an area 3,587.5 acres and was designated a protected nature reserve in 1972.

The combination of the reserve's geographic location, topographic composition, warm temperatures and lack of cold days, coupled with the abundance and quality of the water, make it possible for a variety of flora and fauna, representing different geographic regions, to survive within the territory of the En Gedi Reserve.

I went here via bus #5 in Jerusalem Central Bus Station departing at 0800H, fare at 37.5ils ($10.7) with travel time of 45mins. Admission to David waterfalls costs 29ils ($8.3).
