Wadi Qelt

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hijazi Travel invites you to join us for a one day-hike in the spectacular Wadi Qelt. A truly unforgettable experience, we will walk in the deep valley and along ancient aqueducts built to channel water from the three springs–Farah/Parat, Fawwar, and Qelt–to various points.

From our meeting point in Bethlehem, we drive to  one of the starting points for the walk either Ein Fawwar (Spring) or the Ottoman Caravansary ( depends on the time and the guest/s abilities and desires )   and walk down to Ein Qelt. Our visit includes the grain mills, Herod’s bridge of 2000 years old and a walk by the ancient aqueduct enjoying the landscape and the flora and fauna. Along the way we will have lunch and tea break. Our day ends with a visit to St. George’s Monastery and Herod’s winter palaces at Tulul abu el-Alayiq in Jericho .

The BIG SURPRISE…enjoying the fish cleaning and massaging your feet next to the spring!



The price is NIS 220 / person based on a minimum of 5 participants.

If the number of participants is fewer than 5, the price will be pro-rated to equal the total price for five participants.
