to Nebi Musa and Dir Faran by taxi

by Savl1

Shalom! Hello!
I want to go to Nebi Musa and Dir Faran (from Jerusalem) by taxi (2 ways with waiting). Is it possible? What is the reasonable price (it will be saturday morning, from Damascus gate, the duration of all trip not more 5 hours) ?
Thanks!

Visiting Pharan monastery should, first of all, be coordinated with the monk who lives there at:
02-6541255 (972-2-6541255 from overseas). The monastery is inside the “Ein Phara” national park.

The monastery is pretty close to Jerusalem, but the access road is winding, narrow and not well paved. I would say the journey should last some 25 minutes each way. As for the price? If you negotiate with the driver you might keep this under 300 shekels (might be much less) but this depends on your negotiations skill. Locals from east Jerusalem would have gotten such a price, but you know tourists usually cant negotiate best.

As for Wadi Mussa: I think one should drive back to Jerusalem then head for another 25 minutes drive, but through a different road (leading to the Dead Sea), but even if you can drive directly between the two locations, it should last about the same. Nebi mussa is easily accessed – being just off the main road. If you drive directly there + an hours wait + return I think you can close on 300 Shekels – but again, my speculation only.

It is always recommended to take cards from a taxi driver who took you previously (inner city journeys) and who looked reliable. Just before you get off the cab, ask him about the price for such a journey, telling him you might want to do it on another day. This way he will give you a reasonable offer – better then the one you will get when standing on the street under time pressure.

Mostly agree with the above answer, only i think it is better to do in one go - there is a road thatcontinues from Fara back to the Edumim/Nabi musa so it can save some time, and its a nice ride.

Travel Tips for Jerusalem

Weather (or Not)

by gilabrand

Here are some things you should know about Israeli weather:

Technically, there are only two seasons – winter and summer. Spring and fall are very short, if they exist at all. The seasonal changes are quite abrupt. It can be stifling hot one day – a “sharav,” or “hamsin,” as the burst of heat coming from the desert is called - and the next day you are rummaging in the closet to find your winter coat. The most changeable times of the year are September-November and April-May.

Now, there are not too many definite things in this world, but one of them is this: There is no rain in Israel in the summer. By summer, I mean June, July and August. The first rain of the season is usually toward the end of September, but often there is very little until mid-November.

This is when Israelis start worrying. Because no rain means the level of Israel’s major source of water – the Kinneret – starts to drop. Most of the winter season is taken up with hoping and praying that rainfall will be sufficient to fill the lake and aquifers. Water is a precious resource in this part of the world. You don’t leave the tap running when you wash dishes, or when you brush your teeth. You don’t hose down your car. You don’t fill bathtubs to the top.

When it does rain in Israel, it doesn't last for long. It might rain a day here and a day there, rather than days at a time. The rainiest parts of Israel are the Galilee and Haifa in the north. The driest are Eilat and the Negev in the south. Heavy rains do fall occasionally, taxing the sewer systems and turning some cities into a mini-Venice for a few hours, but again, it doesn’t happen often. Another bit of weather info that may surprise you is that it SNOWS in Israel. Jerusalem gets snow about once a year or once every two years, and of course, it creates a lot of excitement. The whole city shuts down and people from all over the country jump into their cars and rush to see the white stuff before it melts (which is usually very soon).

Remember that Israel may be a small country, but temperatures fluctuate widely – not only from place to place, but between day and night. In many places, there can be a 10-degree difference between day and night. For Israeli winters, you don't need an Alaskan parka, but you do need a light coat or jacket that is roomy enough for a sweater or sweatshirt underneath. Layers are the way to go. Summers are hot, but the dry heat of Jerusalem and Eilat is much easier to tolerate than the humidity of Tel Aviv and the center of the country.

Old City

by leffe3

On everyone's agenda for a visit to Jerusalem is the walled old city with its narrow alleyways, four separate quarters (Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Armenian) and 3 of the holiest sites in the world today. Ducking down alleyways, bartering with the Arab stall holders, getting stuck behind big groups of pilgrims along the Via Dolorosa, watching the prayers at the Western Wall.....

Old City Christian Quarter

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Christian Quarter is one of the four quarters of the ancient, walled Old City of Jerusalem. The Christian Quarter is situated in the northwestern corner of the Old City.
You can enter the Christian Quarter through the New Gate or the Jaffa Gate.
The Christian quarter contains several tens Christian holy places. Among them is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of Christianity's holiest places. You can also find there the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, the Church of St John the Baptist, the Muristan, the Russian Alexander’s Podvorie and many other sites including the Mosque of Omar.

The Omar Mosue

by imran8852

Another place that we've visited is Omar Al-Khattab Mosque on our way to see the Church Of Nativity. Jerusalem is one of the sacred and holy site for the world three major religions, so I do hope visitors to this place will try to show some respect…At least be quiet at the place of worship regardless whether you're freethinker or an agnostic even atheist !

Jerusalem Tip

by John195123

We were walking around the city one night, in the old part of the city, and a wedding ceremony went by us on another street. It really felt odd looking into a ritual like that, as we were uninvited, but it was great. I only got off one shot, and I don't think it came out well. Oh well, still a great experience, as was walking around Jerusalem at night!
