Southern District Travel Guide: 1,485 reviews and 5,098 photos

If you take a look behind Tal sitting on the Arad Rescue Team jeep, you will see the common landscape of southern Israel.
Found this web-site on about the Dead Sea that you might like.

Your Negev landscapes can vary between sand dunes carved by the winds.

To dry river beds cut by the occassional rainfall. The plants you will find here are very hardy, such as the Tsalaf (Caper) which you will see growing out of any crack in the rock wall.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful desert countryside.
  • Cons:Desert can be dangerous for the unprepared
  • In a nutshell:Try it you'll like it.

    Martin, the diversity of places and people is truly terrific! I will stay around for 10 days next year but even that will be way too short to see it all!
