The place is very interesting, worth to check whether there are free guided tours in the park. Often, these tours are organized for small groups at the place, in different languages, by volunteers. If you are lucky, you may get about hour of interesting discussions...More

We drove here on our way to Nazareth. I thought we needed to pay entry (or at least national park pass) but no one checked. The first area we got to was like a picnic area with a gift shop. There were many teenagers there...More
