"Wadi Qelt" Israel Off The Beaten Path Tip by magor65
Israel Off The Beaten Path: 207 reviews and 271 photos
On our way to Jericho we stopped in the middle of nowhere and reluctantly got off the cool air-conditioned bus into the scorching heat. Our tour-leader promised us a surprise if we climb up a few metres. And indeed, the view we had from the top was breathtaking. Amidst the rocks, practically carved out in them, was a monastery. No pictures or words can depict the uniqueness of the place.
The building is the monastery of Saint George. It was built near the cave where Elijah stopped on his way to Jerusalem.
There are walking trails leading through the valley of the Wadi Qelt. This is one of the places I would love to come back to, so perhaps next time when in Israel I'll go hiking there.
