`En Boqeq Travel Guide: 75 reviews and 221 photos

When Sharon, Carmen and Stacey came to visit us in Arad, we decided to move the VT meet into the oasis of Nahal Bokek for one day. It is a beautiful fresh water spring that runs into the Dead Sea. From outside the canyon you would not believe what wonders you will find inside.

Somewhere in the canyon there is a series of "stairs" built to prevent this section of the canyon from rain damage and slow the flow so to speak. It also provides a dam to make a larger pool above and the flow below is directed into a smaller pool. Tal thought this was a great spot for a fashion photo.

So what else do the kids do when they find water, well they have a water fight of course. Here Tal is teaching Stacey the fine art of Israeli water fighting and he is teaching her General Montgomery's technique of "waiting till we see the whites of their waves", or some quote like that, maybe Stacey can fill us in....
