Hot desert tomb - beautiful view of the surrounding area near the Gurions tomb. There were quite a few stones that people have put on the tombs.

Great view over the Zin Valley easy to access. Plenty of shade and grass to rest or play with the kids. Plus given honor ti the first prime minister of Israel David Ben Gurion and his wife Polla.
