Horbat Timna` Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 87 photos
Timna Valley is located about 25km northern to Eilat in the center of the red Valley.
The whole park is about 60sq. km.
and In the lower parts of these cliffs and on the slopes in front of them, copper - rich nodules (up to 55% copper) mainly of malachite and chalcocite, were mined in ancient times.
The Views in the park are trully amazing and its another prove of Natures power ! the only hard thing while traveling around there is the weather, I've been there while it was 43c and it was just way toooo high for being under the sun for so many hours.
1 bottle of water is surly not enough and you got a be ready for a weather like this.
The naturals pools are really nice and it was nice to wet my self finally after hours under the sun.
When you arrive to Timna Park you can start with watching a Video movie (included in the entrance fee) about the park and its history, that will give ya some good background before you start to explore the area.
There are two ways to travel around. one by car and one is hiking. You will get there the map of the area (at the entrance) and then you can chose in what you want see the area as you got all the ways marked on the map (needless to say i didnt chose the hiking option..lol).
Except for all the spactacular views you got and lots of history, when you go to the pools area you get a little bottle which you can fill with few kinds of natural colorful sands sill it and take with you home, also you get a coin which you can imprint (via a very old machin) and get your self a king salomon coin.
In the pool you can take a little peddal boat (all included in the entrance charge) and enjoy some relaxing time.
For a final relaxation go to the beduin tent and get your self some drinks (coffee & tea are free) or food.
