Visit En Gedi – Holy Land Tours

Tips and advice for your Holy Land Tour

Tip 1: The temperatures in the area of En Gedi can at times become very, very hot. Be sure to pack sun cream, a sun hat and plenty of water.

Tip 2: Not far from En Gedi is the Ahava Spa and factory outlet. Include a visit there to purchase Dead Sea products at reduced prices.

Tip 3: Another site to include in your tour of the Holy Land quite near to En Gedi is the Ascent of Akrabim. An ancient road dating back to the time of Moses and very likely a place where Moses would have wander for 40 years with the 40 thousand. The view from the top of the Ascent is breath-taking and shows the true extent of the situation Moses faced.
