"maountain 'KARKOM' in the..." Israel Off The Beaten Path Tip by michaella

Israel Off The Beaten Path: 207 reviews and 271 photos

maountain 'KARKOM' in the south of israel near the border with egypt. reasently a team of arceoligests founs many stone drowrings there that suggest that the Tora was given to the people of israel on that mountain. the team gets back to the mountain every April to continue the excabition the leading arceoligist is an italian proffesor called Emanuel anati, i saw them at work last time they were in israel, and i was amaized!!! maountain 'karkon' is located in an army zone so in order to go there you have to join an orgenized tour...but once you are there you can wonder on your owne!
