Briefly about what you will see in tour from Jerusalem to Judean Desert
- In the early morning, drive from your hotel in Jerusalem to the Judean Desert in an SUV to admire the panoramic landscapes and geometric hills. The first stop will be Mount Azazel, from which, according to legends, every year the scapegoat of the people carrying the sins was thrown off.
- Past nomadic tribes and ancient wells, you will reach the most ancient Greek Orthodox monastery – Mar Saba (the Sava the Sanctified) on the western bank of the Jordan River. The next stop is the tomb of Moses (Muslim) and the Ein Prat Nature Reserve. At Ein Prat, you cool off amid rocky waterfalls, pools, and streams before returning to Jerusalem with renewed vigor.
