You get to see some animals up close. If you are here and looking for something to do then this can work for 30 to 60 minutes.

The waterfall was great and so refreshing! It was very close to the Deadsea and also the paths were in good conditions. I highly recomend this place.

It's a nice oasis in the desert. I went on Saturday so the place was overrun by kids. Some nice easy trails to hike. Lovely views.

Absolutely a must!! There are so many trails suitable for all ages and abilities. I did two holes and probably would have done a third if I had another day. I did the Arugot on the first day and loved it! I didn't even have...More
