    All of Ein Gedi on a Placemat!

    Pictorial map of Ein Gedi

    Favorite thing: I found this schematic pictorial map of Ein Gedi on the paper placemats at the Ein Gedi resort hotel, and thought of you, my dear fellow VTer.

    You can get an idea of where everything in Ein Gedi is from this pictorial map: the main road, the kibbutz, the hotel, the botanic garden, the spa, the beaches, the field school, the youth hostel, the David and Arugot wadis, the Nachal David nature reserve, the ancient synagogue, the surrounding mountains...

    Hope this will make orientation easier, and also give you some appetite to see everything and experience it all! (See the "Bon Appetit" at the bottom on the left)!

    Do it in the water

    Nahal Arugot, in the water, Israel

    Favorite thing: This is how Tal (my daughter) and I did the entire trip, in the water. Yes, yes, yes, there is a very well defined and marked trail, but that is where all the stuffy bodies go, we had fun.
    Alas, today (in 2004) Tal is older and would most likely tell me ''but Dad, that would mess up my makeup, what would happen if we meet any BOYS" ;O)))

    Arugot, stepped waterfall

    by Martin_S. Written Mar 22, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is one of the small stepped waterfalls that Tal and I crawled over, under and through to wend our way along the watercourse of this beautiful desert spring. Even just thinking about these fantastic places where water springs out of the ground in the dry barren landscape of the desert brings goosebumps.

    Engedi or Ein Gedi as the...

    Favorite thing: Engedi or Ein Gedi as the Israëlian say, is a marvelous place in the mountains and between the deserts. You can find the Dead Sea here and the nature preserve. Also deserts are nearby. You can easily visit Masada and Herodium from here. In these deserts you can find a cave that contains the famous Dead Sea Rolls, ancient scrips once hidden in vases.

    Arugot, the big waterfall

    Arugot, the big waterfall, Israel

    Favorite thing: This is the biggest waterfall in the Arugot system and it has also carved a nice large pool for swimming. Here Edi is teaching his son Yonaton how to swim...(at least I THINK he is ;O))
