To put it in historical context, this was where King David hid - in the desert of Ein Gedi when King Saul was seeking him "even upon the most craggy rocks, which are accessible only to wild goats" (1 Samuel 24:3). You may be able to see the Nubian Ibex if you're lucky. The lovely walk takes you upstream and ends at the David falls. Wear steady footwear.Recommended for:

Reaching to the "swimmable" shores of the Dead Sea, the landscape is spectacular. The beach is a popular entry point into the Dead Sea but it is extremely rocky. Some type of footwear is highly recommended.Recommended for:

Looking for unique desert adventure full of history and archaeology? Ein Gedi has it all plus more. Ein Gedi is an oasis in the Judea desert on the shore of Dead Sea. Hikes offer amazing scenery that looks primeval. If you are planning Israel adventure put Ein Gedi on your list and you will not regret it.Recommended for:

Right by the Dead Sea, but a total contrast in appearance, Ein Gedi is very much alive. The hike offers some spectacular swimming/lounging at various watering holes surounded by a bizarre combination of trees, vines, and desert.
